Minnesota is known for its scenic beauty—from its many lakes to its beautiful forests to its western prairies—much of which is captured on the properties of numerous wineries throughout the state. From a winery in Winona that overlooks the rolling ridges of the bluffs of the Mississippi River to one in Red Wing that sits on a working farm to another in St. Louis Park that gives visitors a “view” of the world, Minnesota is stockpiled with wineries that not only offer picturesque views but also private meeting and event space.
Minnesota may be known as the "Land of Lakes," but it could be referred to as the “Land of Historic Sites,” as well. From Grand Rapids to the Twin Cities to Red Wing, there is a cornucopia of historic venues in state that recall the days of yore. The following are 10 renowned spots that will take you back in time.
