Midwest Winery Tours

Winery tours in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin with various events and multiple locations. Road trip! I call shotgun!

Three Rivers Wine Trail

From their site: "The Three Rivers Wine Trail is Minnesota's first wine trail and is comprised of five of Minnesota's oldest wineries all located within the Saint Croix, Mississippi, and Cannon River Valleys. Wine lovers can spend a day or a weekend on the trail visiting wineries amid lush valley scenery and sampling award-winning, locally produced wines."

Wineries on the trail:

WineHaven Winery & Vineyard - Chisago City, MN
Northern Vineyards Winery - Stillwater, MN
Saint Croix Vineyards - Stillwater, MN
Falconer Vineyards - Red Wing, MN
Cannon River Winery - Cannon Falls, MN

Great River Road Wine Trail

From their site: "The Great River Road Wine Trail was founded in 2009 when nine wineries located near the Mississippi River in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa joined together to market their unique part of the world. The Great River Road is not a single highway but several routes following both sides of the river. Our region of the river is characterized by the river bluff-lands that were spared from the last glaciers that covered most of North America. All this together makes the Great River Road Wine Trail a special place for travel and adventure while enjoying the fruits of our wine making skills."

Wineries on the trail:

Cannon River Winery - Cannon Falls, MN
Falconer Vineyards - Red Wing, MN
Valley Vineyard - Prescott, WI
Vino in the Valley - Maiden Rock, WI
