Minnesota Winery Passport Giveaway

Earlier this year we discovered a Winery Passport for Minnesota and several in Iowa and Wisconsin. Since our motto is dining, drinking & discovering Minnesota and its neighbors, this Winery Passport was right in our wheelhouse!

MN Shaped Wine Flights

The Minnesota Winery Passport is a good excuse for a road trip!

Check out all of the participating wineries! What we liked about the passport is even if we’ve been to the area prior, we likely haven’t checked out the winery. This passport gives us another reason to go back and explore with a different purpose- wine tasting! The idea of planning a road trip to a new winery is something to look forward to. It’s a great excuse for a day trip or even a night away.

How the Winery Passport works

A passport is $25. Visit any of the participating wineries (48 at the time of this post) and receive a FREE tasting. Repeat until you’ve redeemed your 10 tastings. Best part- it doesn’t expire until you’ve used up your 10 tastings! Other offers might include case discounts, BOGO’s or a percentage off of a bottle. It differs from winery to winery.

Round Lake Winery- Round Lake, MN

As we mentioned, the passport doesn’t expire. We only made time for one winery visit this summer. During a trip to Okoboji, IA we stopped at Round Lake Winery on the way. It was absolutely stunning. It served as a perfect taste of what’s to come with more road trips in the future to visit more wineries.

    I have to say – I don’t really have a favorite yet! I’m new to the area and I really don’t get out to do this as much as I’d like to!

    What a fun idea! I have done a hiking passport for the MN State Parks…but this sounds more up my ally. One of my favorite wineries in MN is Alexis Bailey…oh and Carlos Creek…oh and…..

      We have never heard of Alexis Bailey- we’ll add it to our list. Carlos Creek is a great winery! We want to do the SKAL Crawl afternoon where you visit a distiller, winery and brewery.
