Twin Cities Area Wineries
The Twin Cities may be known for incubating dozens of craft beer breweries, but there are a number of fantastic wineries throughout the area as well. South of Inver Grove Heights is Cannon River Winery, Alexis Bailly Vineyard and Falconer Vineyards. These wineries specialize in small batch wines known for bringing home the awards and national acclaim with all the grapes are grown in vineyards in the area or on the premises. Building on the hearty grape varietals developed by the University of Minnesota, the area's growing wine industry is well worth a visit.
