I love Carlos Creek wine! Specifically, White Marquette but they no longer make! :( the tour is fun and informative, and also inexpensive! Do yourself a favor and experience the wine tasting. While visiting last, there was a wedding outside and it looked beautiful!

They have multiple wine tasting groups based on what type of wine you prefer, red, white, sweet, fruity, dry and MN wines. The You Betcha Blush was... More

We stopped on a Monday for a wine tasting. Laura was our hostess. She was informative and conversational. We enjoyed the wine and bought some to take home. Relaxing and enjoyable!

Hi Susan, I am so glad you enjoyed your visit to Carlos Creek. Laura is an awesome employee - I think she has as much fun serving wine, as our customers do drinking it. And I'm happy you found some favorite bottles to take home. We hope you return often. Kind Regards, More

Out for a "fun" weekend with sister and cousins and thought a wine tasting would be fun. Would have been 5 stars (as we loved the wine) but we were totally dumbfounded by the unsmiling and totally unfriendly staff. It was 45 min before closing. Did they ALL have a really bad day? It truly was the most unhospitable experience... More

Carlos Creek Winery has a beautiful spot in the countryside outside of Alexandria. Besides its popular wines, they often have live music performing. During the Grape Stomp festival in the fall, many, many vendors have booths for arts and crafts, jewelry, wood carving, and more. Food vendors are set up also, and of course wine tasting is available. The Grape... More
