I sadly, have not been to the Alexis Bailly yet, BUT have been to Falconer AND Cannon River, and both were fantastic!

My ALL time favorite winery that I've visited is Villa Belezza. Here the hubby and I are at the Villa Belezza. Seriously look at that door, look at the walls and the floor. It truly was like stepping into a different world. They call it "Southern Europe, only closer," and it's just a short drive away in Pepin, WI.

Closer to home, we have several great wineries as well.

Post Town in Rochester is one of my faves!

And obviously you can't go wrong with Four Daughters Winery in Spring Valley.
