About Parley Lake Winery:

Parley Lake Winery is proud to offer local character in hand crafted wines.  We are located in Waconia, Minnesota: ‘on the edge of the cities, out in the country,’ less than 10 minutes from the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  Located at the home of Deardorff Orchards & Vineyards, we began planting Minnesota Grapes in 2005. Today our 125 rolling, wooded acres are adjacent to the Carver Park Reserve and offer the chance to experience 7 acres of Vineyards, 20 acres of orchards, and locally grown and produced wines. In our six years as a commercial winery we have already won numerous regional and international awards for our wines.  

About our Tasting Room:

Our tasting room is located in the old 1880s era barn on the property, which is rustic yet well-equipped with marble-topped bars, gift merchandise, and -of course- wine.  We are open to the public June through December, with days and hours that vary during the season.  We also are available for Wine-centric semiprivate and private events, such as workgroup recognition events, client appreciation events, bus tours, family or friend gatherings, and Parley Lake events like our Case Club and Barrel Club events.
