The St Croix Vineyard and City Tour

Our first tour will be June 27. We will be renting a coach bus and departing from the Northern Suburbs. This Minnesota wine tour covers part of the St. Croix River valley and is estimated to be six hours long and will take you through Stillwater, up the beautiful St. Croix river to the Taylor’s Falls region with stops at Stillwater, Taylors Falls, Chateau St. Croix, Northern Vineyards, and Maple Island Brewing.

We have a wonderful tour planned. However, due to weather, schedules at the vineyards, or other unforeseen issues, the tour may be changed slightly to other vineyards or the order changed around.
