    Went to the winery with my wife, my brother-in-law and his wife on Saturday. We had the Minnesota Wine Passports, and we decided to do a tour of the three wineries in Waconia. Of the three, this was our second favorite. The wines were pretty good, the winery is beautiful, but the person helping us with our tasting (Harry) came across as slightly off-putting. He gave decent information about the wines, but often seemed annoyed at questions we had and when he answered them talked like we didn't know anything. We did enjoy the music that was being played (it was a big band playing swing music), and the art around the grounds is pretty cool (especially the “Tool Shed” piece).

    I work at Parley Lake Winery, so I'm biased, but it is an awesome place to hang out. We have many award-winning wines available for tasting, glasses, or bottle purchase. Our tasting room is in a beautiful 1880's barn and our grounds are beautiful. We have many sculptures on-site including the larger-than-life Goddess of the Grapes. We usually have food trucks and live music on Saturdays and Sundays, so check the website before you come out. It's a great place to hang out with friends. I get asked all the time which is my favorite wine... try the Marquette!

    My wife and I make it a yearly tradition to come here in the fall and do some sampling. The location is gorgeous, and they always have some new wine to try made with MN grapes.

    Enjoyed the art festival we did there with a friend. Good wines, nice live music. Look forward to going back in the fall for apples.
