19 Amazing Wineries You Must Visit In Southeast Minnesota
19 Amazing Wineries You Must Visit In Southeast Minnesota and Wisconsin
A friend of mine sent me a text the other day that said, "Hey, I want you to visit a winery with me!". This is basically a no-brainer question for me and I obviously responded super fast to that text because that sounds like the perfect thing to do this summer. Hanging out with friends in the summer is something I want to do more of...I miss it...and we are all busy...but for some reason when the word "wine" shows up in conversation, our schedule opens.
Why stop at one winery though? I'm thinking we need to just tour all of the wineries in the area. If that sounds like the perfect adventure for you, check out these top spots that are just a short drive from Rochester.

FYI, there is a 0.5k Wine Walk happening at Salem Glen. You get to sample some wine AND you even get a race bib! Click here to get all of the "race" info.
Today I learned, that the Mississippi River is basically a haven for wineries.
Did you know that there were so many vineyards and wineries alongside the Mississippi River? Personally, I'm shocked! I had no idea that there were so many amazing spots hidden in the bluffs and valleys next to the water. And the views at some of these locations are picture perfect for those selfies.
Are margaritas more of a favorite for you?
If so, I've got some good news for you! Just like the winery tour above, there is a margarita tour in Southeast Minnesota waiting for you.
