Carlos Creek Winery is a Minnesota winery located in Alexandria, MN.  We produce over 20 varieties, specializing in wines made from Minnesota grapes and apples.  Our most popular wines are our MN Nice Series, including Hot Dish Red, Wobegon White and You Betcha Blush.  Our winery is one of the oldest in Minnesota and was established in 1999. 

We wanted to create a Minnesota winery experience that was fun, approachable and informative.  A place that anyone could come and enjoy great wines and a great experience.  Wine should be welcoming, fun, and most importantly, really, really good!  Drinking a seriously good wine doesn't mean you can't have fun, and having fun doesn't mean you can't be drinking seriously good wine.  That really is the heart of what we do and we hope you stop by and become a part of it.                                                                - The Bredesons
