The Cannon River Winery is having Tank Tasting on March 9th. I did this last year, and it is a fun event. I also did the harvest in the fall which is something everyone should try and do once in their life. Nothing like cutting a bursting cluster of grapes off the vine that is soon to be turned into wine. I am now curious to try that very wine so see you on the 9th.

Cannon River Winery

 

 

Cannon River Winery Vineyard of Cannon Falls will be open for tours and picnics starting in July. Weather permitting it will run every Sat from July 2nd to the end of September. This is a real treat. Minnesota does not have an abundance of vineyards so to have one that you can tour and picnic in is a nice change from the norm.

You need to stop by the Cannon River Winery to pick pay $5 and pick up a map. Only Cannon River Winery wine is welcome at the vineyard. You could do a lot worse then bringing a bottle or two of their award winning wine. Packing a nice picnic lunch and enjoying the feel of a true working vienyard right here in Minnesota. The vista is picturesque as you are on a hillside overlooking a sweeping valley. The arrow straight rows of grape vines transport you across the ocean to a simpler way of life in the old country.

A truly must see if you are lover of the grape.
