Come join us at our Annual Spring Wine Release Celebration when we release the 2017 vintage of wines for tasting and for sale the first weekend after Memorial Day.
This year we celebrate the 40th year since we first opened our doors to the public.
In June of 1978 David Bailly opened the doors of Alexis Bailly Vineyard for the first time and served the first wines made of Minnesota grown grapes to his customers. As the first winery ever built in Minnesota he constructed it out of Minnesota white and Norway pine. He named his fledgling venture after his great Grandfather, Alexis Bailly, a French pioneer who helped settle the town of Hastings.
Our winery continues it's tradition by celebrating 40 years since our father started his dream of a Minnesota winery.
Special Anniversary Cuvée Limited Wine Release
Our wine maker, Nan Bailly, has created an anniversary wine in honor of the wine that started it all: Chateau Haut-Bailly of Bordeaux, France. It was his love for this wine that inspired David Bailly to start the winery and pursue his own dream of making wine. Taking that inspiration as her own, Nan has created a special blend to toast our 40th year.
