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 location is nestled between five lakes: Ida, L'Homme Dieux, Miltona, Darling and Carlos. The lakes are the deepest in the county and moderate our climate resulting in higher winter temperatures and lower summer temperatures than surrounding areas.
Our vineyards are planted with cold-hearty grape varieties that can withstand 30 degrees below without protection. The names of these varieties are not familiar to many wine drinkers (YET!) and include: Frontenac, Sabrevois, Valiant, King of the North, Brianna, Marquette, Petite Pearl and Prairie Star.
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!
