Visit The Nearby Wineries
Minnesota wine grape harvest occurs in the early fall, and many local wineries allow guests to help out with their annual grape picking and crushing process. The Cannon River Winery in Cannon Falls offers a unique fall harvest experience that involves grape picking, wine tasting, and a meal; afterwards, you’ll witness the grapes you hand-picked being crushed into the beginning stages of wine. While you’re in the area, take a bike ride along the Cannon Valley Trail to see the area’s beautiful fall colors.
At the Carlos Creek Winery in Alexandria, the Grape Stomp draws thousands of vinos each year who compete in grape stomping (often while wearing crazy outfits), explore a juried art show, and enjoy food and live music. Unique to this event: a “Lucy Look-A Like” stomp, where guests dressed up as Lucille Ball pay homage to the famous grape stomping incident in I Love Lucy.Cannon River Winery in Cannon Falls
FYI: The exact time of grape harvest season can vary from year to year due to weather patterns. If you’re planning on visiting a local winery this fall, call ahead to make sure their grapes are ready to be picked.
