  • Parley Lake was our second stop on the wine tour of Waconia and we really loved it. The environment and scenery is top notch - note that there is an apple orchard here too with a petting farm so there...  more »

  • Had to be south of the Cities and decided to use the $29 face value of a 2013 Groupon. Should not have been a problem but, still, did not know what to expect. Did not turn out to be a problem and staff very gracious; just had to figure out how to redeem it. Winery was very busy by the time we left with many people enjoying the vineyard, orchard , seating, and beautiful day. Tasted 6 wines in the tasting. Wine average but very drinkable and Marquette very nice. Would return if looking for a nice way to spend a fun afternoon with the family.
  • 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).
  • What a cool winery! The music is always good, the atmosphere and view are great, the staff are kind and welcoming and most importantly the wine tastes great! We will be coming back here often!
  • This is a cute little spot. They had very enjoyable live music while we were there as well as a food truck.
  • 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!
