The Deal

$26 for a wine tasting package for two people ($51 total value)

  • Six wine tastings with with each customer receiving a glass to take home ($15 value)
  • Appetizers to share ($3 value)
  • Private tasting class with printed educational materials to take home ($18 value)
  • Bottle of wine to take home ($15 value)<p>

The tasting begins by learning how the senses of sight, touch, taste, and smell educate tasters about the type and quality of wine. Smelling is the most important sense, and tasters will sample a winery varietal to practice sniffing wine. Tasters will also learn how to choose the best wineglass and how to drink from it. Next, tasters will learn how to identify the seven common wine faults. The sense of smell is revisited as enophiles will be challenged with common wine aromas, then try to detect them in the winery’s blends. Then they will learn how to decant wine and how temperature affects different wines. The session ends by learning how wines complement food. Guests will sample appetizers and two more winery blends .Students will receive printed lessons, a wineglass, and a bottle of wine, so they can practice their new wine skills at home.<p>

Wild Mountain Winery

At Wild Mountain Winery, everything is local, right down to the grapes and the process in which they're grown. Surrounded by the green hillsides of the St. Croix River Valley, Wild Mountain Winery utilizes the methods of Elmer Swenson—a pioneering breeder who revolutionized grape growing in regions plagued by cold, short seasons, and undomesticated snowplows. Having been perfected over the years, those time-tested processes now result in cold hardy varietals that represent the local climate, soils, and vines. Travelers along the Upper St. Croix Wine Trail can explore Wild Mountain Winery's territorial flavors in a number of ways, including during weekend tastings.

This is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. The ambiance is charming, and there's a lot to see. I very much enjoy the setting, and look forward to future visits! The bourbon apple cidre is amazing too!
