Guests are free to tour at their leisure, whenever we are open.
PRODUCTION & VINEYARD TOUR | FREE | 12PM & 2PM
Available Saturdays Memorial weekend - Labor Day weekend. Take a walking tour of our vineyards and our new production facility, and barrel room. Learn about Minnesota wine grapes and an in-depth presentation on wine making and barrel aging. 50 minutes. FREE. We limit tours to 30 people and are first-come-first-serve.
Group reservations are required for groups of 10 or more.
WALK-IN TASTINGS AT THE TASTING BAR: $10 (keep your wine glass)
Come and taste our wines whenever we're open! Choose a wine flight (Sweet, Dry, Fruity, Reserves, etc.) and enjoy 5-6 different CCW wines, poured at our tasting bar, and keep our souvenir glass when you're done. Make sure to buy a glass or bottle of wine and keep that lovely glass filled - an empty wine glass is such a sad thing. No reservations are necessary unless you're bringing more than 10 people. NOTE: We stop selling wine tastings 30 minutes before close each day to assure guests have plenty of time to enjoy all their samples.
