The perfect day trip from Minneapolis/St. Paul!

We are a modern winery that is making the very best wines of the St. Croix river valley. The state-of-the-art production facilities and tasting room are surrounded by 15 acres of cold-climate grapes. We have a commitment to producing fine wine from Midwest and California fruit that have a natural balance, characteristic flavor, and a hint of elegance. Our first crush was in 2012 and our tasting bar is opening in the spring of 2013.

Dancing Dragonfly Winery believes in close family and friends, lively conversation and great tasting wine. Enjoy our spacious tasting room during winter months as well as the covered patio during the summer. Dancing Dragonfly Winery is a one-of-a-kind destination located on the Minnesota/Wisconsin border, just an hour from Minneapolis/St. Paul. Tours feature a walking tour of our vineyard and production facilities with the tour ending in our tasting room. Open year around.

Join us and start your own tradition.

  • Went tonight for the first time and had a great experience. Really enjoyed the "minuet" white wine which was fantastic, has some Chardonnay grapes in it. The pizza was great, I had the Kevin Bacon. We sat outside and it was excellent other than the flies. The FLIES!!! Oh my it was so bad. They need fly paper or traps outside I guess.
  • Did a shortlist tour of four area wineries today with a small group. Dancing Dragonfly wins the overall, and the best wine of the four - 2nd place for atmosphere. None of us like sweet wine, so we stuck to the drier ones with two flights, and a couple of other separate glasses / tastes. All the wines were good, which is surprising for these regional wineries. They are blending regional grape varieties with west coast grown classics, in some cases more of the latter - but using a lot of estate grown too. A couple of these wines were good enough to serve to (generally) discerning folks, and not have to qualify them as being regional wines. One very nice touch, and the first time in the area I have seen it, they pair all their flights with palate bites, which were all chosen very well. We also had a small plate to share. These were good but not enough to rate them on their food. Staff is, in a word, outstanding. The view and the patio are spacious and very nice, interior space is fine but if you can, be outside at this place. If you are, like me, generally unimpressed with regional wine, give this place a shot. It isn't Italy or Napa but is probably about as good as it gets in these parts.
