Whining about winter? Visit a winery

See also

The blustery cold winter nights are just beginning to get colder and colder; to think that the worst is not even close to being over could make the average Minnesotan blow a gasket.

How does one escape the cold? A warm destination is not the answer. Whining is not an option either. What could possibly be the best idea is to continue on with any inner urges, including a body warming glass of wine.

Yes, wineries all over the state of Minnesota are still open and available for tours during the winter months. Most local vineyards also have quite the incentive, including producing fabulous wines at wallet-friendly prices.

Visitors to the wineries will learn about all the different varieties of wine each vineyard has to offer, along with a sampling spree. So, don’t be a dork and check out some corks.
