Sit back, relax, and allow our knowledgeable tour guide to take you to Minnesota's best wineries, located right outside the Twin Cities! Join us as we start the 4-hour tour on our coach bus learning about the mysteries of wine and the wondrous tales of the countryside. The first winery we'll visit is Sovereign Estate, nestled along the banks of Lake Waconia. Here you can savor Taste Twin Cities' favorite Cabernet Franc wine or one of a variety of other wines. At this stop you'll have time to purchase lunch to enjoy with your favorite glass of wine.
We'll then travel to Parley Lake Winery located in Waconia. Enjoy a glass of wine on the outdoor patio overlooking their family-owned apple orchard or visit the petting zoo. Included in Parley's wine collection is the winner of the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, Brianna Breeze.
The final stop is at one of Minnesota's newest wineries, Schram Vineyards. The Vineyard was planted in 2008 with 6 acres of various hardy Minnesota grapes. Enjoy a glass of wine with views of their beautiful vineyards, gardens, and lake. If you feel adventurous before we end the tour, you can enjoy playing a little Bocce Ball on their manicured courts. This winery also features a brewery!
Be sure to purchase your favorite bottle(s) of wine at each winery for your enjoyment on our coach, or save it for a special occasion.
