There’s more to the Parley Lake Winery than wine… It’s a farm, it’s an apple orchard, there’s a great gift shop, entertainment for all ages, great food from a truck food, and an art gallery (sort of).
Situated on 125 acres of rolling woodlands near Waconia Minnesota, Parley Lake Winery has 7 acres of vineyards and 20 acres of apple orchards where you can pick your own apples. Enter the big barn and you can spend at least a couple hours checking out the gifts, deciding which apples to buy from the many varieties and tasting the wines.
Outside you are down on the farm and the kids love it!
It is evident that art is very important to the owners of Parley Lake Winery. The day we were out there there was an artist drawing portraits of visitors. You will love the beautiful sculptures that are on the grounds.
They also promote the Arts by providing a stage for musicians. We were entertained by two amazing young Country Singers, Erin and Madison. Erin and Madison are high school students at Lakeville and Farmington and perform throughout Minnesota. Be sure and like them on their FB page ERIN AND MADISON. Here is one of their songs on YouTube. ERIN AND MADISON… “STAY”
Erin is a very talented singer and Madison is absolutely terrific on the guitar. I have no doubt that they will become famous one day and we will say “We knew them when……”
They provide artists with a great opportunity through an annual contest for artists designing a lable for their Artisans Wine Series. The submission deadline for the 2015 series is January 2, 2016. Details can be found at
