Let's hike along the Great River Road Wine Trail, while sampling and enjoying the holiday foods and wines at Minnesota and Wisconsin vineyards along the way!

Did you know that Minnesota and Wisconsin have some gorgeous vineyards - especially near Lake Pepin? The Trail begins in Red Wing (about an hour & 15 minutes from Mpls) and meanders around Lake Pepin, which is really just a widening in the Mississippi River. Visiting these vineyards is a treat anytime, but is especially fun during The Great River Road Wine Trail, HARVEST WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL!

I've travelled this Trail several times and once we get a group together, we'll put together an itinerary for hikes and other OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES around the vineyards and other attractions for FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. On Saturday, I will meet up with a group of InterNations Foodies to continue visiting vineyards - but without the hiking. Please feel free to join in on the INTERNATIONS FOODIES website if you plan to join us on SATURDAY.

I have found a beautiful B&B where 10 people can stay both Friday and Saturday nights. Plus, there is still lots of other lodging available in the area, but this will go quickly!

[By the way, advance tickets for The Great River Road Wine Trail event WHICH WILL START ON SATURDAY, are $25 per person. Sunday only tickets are $20 per person. (see the InterNations Foodies activity page).

Each ticket holder will receive a wine trail glass and a six-bottle wine tote at the first winery visited. Their ticket and wine glass will entitle the holder to free wine and food tasting at each winery. Designated driver tickets, for food-only, are $10.]

Cheers!
