River Road Winery Tour

Book Now

Hop on our luxury coach for a wine adventure you will not soon forget.  Join Taste Twin Cities on a tour of three of the premier wineries located along the St. Croix River Valley.  On our way to the first winery we will learn about the history of wine and enjoy the views along the historic river road.   The first winery is also a popular apple orchard, Saint Croix Vineyards.    They serve award winning wines for over 20 years.  The tasting room is located in an unique old barn and they feature outdoor seating - perfect for bringing a packed lunch.  The second winery is Minnesota's oldest winery established in 1977, Northern Vineyard.  We will enjoy a glass of wine and views of the St. Croix River and its historic lift bridge.  Next up is the newest winery in Wisconsin, Belle Vinez. This is a Zimmerman Family owned winery along with a small eatery featuring little bites that complement their wines.   Time will be available to purchase your favorite bottle(s) of wine at each winery for your enjoyment on our coach or save it for a special occasion.
