Having said that, though, I love wineries and vineyards. There is something so restful about them. People are relaxed, often listening to live music, reading a book, or having a picnic. It's a "let your worries go" kind of atmosphere...and not because of the wine. It's just wonderful. So I decided I wanted to see a few new wineries. There are actually quite a few around MN, so I set out to find a few of the gems.
My friend, Mickie, and I were able to explore Goose Lake Farms & Winery in Elk River, MN and Soveriegn Estates Winery in Waconia, MN. I sought out Cannon River Winery by myself for a day to read and rest with the Lord. All three wineries were great. I recommend them!
