Think cold. Think snow. Think warm. Think fireplace at your favorite inn. Now think of enjoying a glass of fine Minnesota wine fireside with your sweetie. Many assume winery visting and tasting is just for summer and fall adventures. The vines are snuggled in under the snow but the wine has been bottled and waiting for you to uncork. There are a few wineries and tasting rooms that are open year ’round. The Northern Vineyards in Stillwater is one favorite and is open seven days a week and a nice stop on your way to your getaway. Also the Cannon River Winery in Cannon Falls keeps winter hours Thursdays through Sundays. The St Croix and Mississippi river valleys are speckled with B & Bs and many offer special winter rates and packages. One inn specializing in Winery Tour Packages throughout the year is Classic Rosewood Inn and Spa.in Hastings. Visit their package page for more information on this all inclusive package that includes dinners and lunches in addition to wine tastings and overnights in a whirlpool-fireplace suite.
