Wine Tasting & picking at Parley Lake & Sovereign Wineries of Waconia

Every year we like to take a group out to pick grapes at Parley Lake Winery. Parley Lake Winery & Orchard is one of our favorite wineries. They always have great wines also apples, pumpkins and a bunch of fall harvest to buy. They should also be starting the wine making process of pressing the grapes and answering wine making questions. After a few hours at Parley Lake we’ll take the group 3 short miles to Sovereign Winery and taste their fine wines.

They have two pick groups: One at 7 AM another a 12:30 for 4 1/2 hours. We are thinking about showing up at 10 AM to drink and maybe pick for a while... LOL With our short obligation we are not expecting anything from the winery for our fine short labor.

As with all our winery tours we'll all bring: cheese, crackers & something to share with others in our group for that day.

We'll post more information the week of the event.

This is always a great time!

Hope you can make it!

    Fun and welcoming people. This was my first meeting with this group, and I felt like I was with old friends, which was great!

    Finding the group: you will ALWAYS be able to find our group by looking for THREE things: signs, name tags and the people having fun... well unless we are touring Sex World or one of the strange places in town... Then not so much!

    LAST YEAR, we worked with the Wine Maker and he set asside grapes just for our group to pick on the date we said we were coming out. This year we are dealing with a marketing person that is VERY poor at getting us information. I have ANOTHER email asking for if we will be picking..... Sorry,

    So now it's after the Sunday before the pick. Are they picking? If not, will we still start at 10? If so, is it cool to get there after the pick like I think we did last year? I'm just not that picky.

    Is there any way this might move to the 29th? I have class most other Saturdays.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
