Nan Bailly - Alexis Bailly Winery
With the vineyard planted in 1973 and a tasting room that debuted in 1978, this second-generation winery claims to be the first commercial winery to produce Minnesota-grown grapes. Nan Bailly has the same grapevines her father originally planted on the 13-acre Hastings farm. In addition to Minnesota grapes, French hybrids and California grapes are stars of the wines here. This is definitely a destination for those who like to have a large selection of medium to dry wines.

Carlos Creek Winery is located in Alexandria, MN and was recently named Alexandria's Business and Industry of 2016!

Several local Wineries and Distilleries!
Heather Manely - Crooked Water
Heather created Crooked Water Spirits in 2013. It was a passion for spirits and innovation that lead her to create Kings Point, a Port Cask finished bourbon. This success quickly led to a line of unique gins, vodkas and whiskies.
