Warm up your winter with us on our annual ‘Winter Winery Tour’ that explores three unique wineries from White Bear Lake to the St. Croix River valley. During this outing, you will have the opportunity to take in both the sights and the wine that this vibrant region has to offer.
To begin this event, our GetKnit Gurus will meet and greet you before we board our luxury coach bus, which will carry us throughout our days travels as seek out some of the finest wineries in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. Our first stop for the day will be at 7 Vines Vineyard in Dellwood, MN. This stunning winery is nestled in the rolling hills surrounded by acres of vines. The winery itself boasts a beautiful, hand crafted woodwork with a modern, rustic flair. Here we’ll enjoy a tour of their state-of-the-art facility and a tasting of six different wines. We’ll then have some free time to explore the facility or grab a glass of wine and relax next to one of their roaring fireplaces.
From there, we will travel to the family owned and operated Winehaven Winery, Chisago County’s first estate winery. Winehaven has become a cornerstone of Minnesota winemaking, producing highly acclaimed wines that capture the distinctive flavors of its vineyards and region. Here, we’ll be welcomed with a tasting of six of their wines and have some delicious Charcuterie boards to enjoy as an appetizer. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a delicious flatbread pizza and salad buffet and have the opportunity to grab ourselves a glass of wine to pair with our meal. We’ll then have some free time to enjoy their winery and a glass of wine should you choose.
Making our final stop at Chateau St. Croix Winery and Vineyard, a European-styled winery located in the rolling hills of the River Valley, we’ll be guided through the winery, learning about wine-making traditions and techniques while sampling their diverse portfolio of wines.
Throughout the day, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional glasses and bottles of wine to your heart’s content.
As the day draws to a close and we make our return trip, we are sure that you will head home with memories almost as rich as the wine we tasted.
