Now this is a personal favorite of mine. I’m a sucker for locally grown and produced products from Minnesota. While there are many wineries in Minnesota, this one has my heart…mainly because this one is super small and close to where I grew up. I was surprised when I went home and my parents took me here. The owners started Whispering Oaks Winery a few years ago (at that time I was away at college). They grow all their own grapes and invite family and friends over to press the grapes.
About the wine pictured:
This is the La Crescent wine. I’m not a red wine kind of girl, but the whites are definitely a favorite. This wine in particular had great flavor. On top of a crisp aroma and taste were notes of citrus. Not too sweet, this wine would pair well with summer-inspired dishes. (Think something light like a summer salad with chicken or fish.)
On top of this wine, they have 7 other wines both red and white that would delight a variety of guests. The best part about visiting Whispering Oaks Winery is that you are able to sample 3 wines for free. Cheese and other pairings are available for a small fee, but it’s well worth it. On top of great wines, the owners are friendly and are always willing to share stories about their winery.
