About Us

Carlos Creek Winery is located in the Alexandria Lakes area in west central Minnesota and in the heart of Minnesota's first Federally Approved Viticultural Area (AVA).

Our 15 acres of vineyards are planted with cold-hearty grape varieties that can withstand 30 degrees below without protection. Our orchards are planted with a variety of apple trees that are grown exclusively for our wine production.

Carlos Creek Winery is owned and operated by the Bredeson family. Many people ask us how we got into the wine business. If you're interested in our story, take a look at our About Us page!
