WaconiaVille Tours doesn't just deal in winery tours, and it doesn't just deal in sightseeing tours. What it offers is intimate knowledge of the vineyard-rich regions of Central Minnesota—the rolling farmlands, the regional flavors, the country sunshine and Lake Waconia breezes. Of course, to transform these elements into an experience, WaconiaVille does, in fact, combine winery and brewery visits with sightseeing tours.
