Our long love affair with craft beer continues to be a steamy and prolific one, but our relationship with grapes and the wine they make is quite a passionate affair itself.  Our cold climate can be quite harsh for many grape varieties, but thanks to the research and perseverance of the University of Minnesota, we are ripe for a few cold-hardy hybrid grape varieties. And, that includes one of the state’s most important grapes: Frontenac.

But are they any good? We say the best way to find out is to sip it yourself and find what you enjoy. And there are plenty of wineries across our state to choose. Work your way through our ultimate list of Minnesota wineries, and you’ll find many sure-fire winners, starting at the top. Alexis Bailly Vineyards in Hastings is the state’s oldest winery, having produced fine wine for more than 40 years, but as our list shows, you can now find wineries in just about every part of the state.

Check them out in person, or browse local wines all at one time by shopping online or visiting any of our Haskell’s locations.
