Horrible Customer Service! As a first timer, there was NO direction whatsoever. Upon entering there werent signs saying seat yourself. Nobody was present upon entering and I had to find one of the many employees to ask for guidance, which even that wasnt very helpful. I learned to seat ourselves, but didnt know EVERYTHING was self serve, get your own wine (without any guidance or suggestions from the staff), order your own food (waiting and asking for help from the many busy employees). Had we known everything was self serve, my husband and I would have gone somewhere else or stayed home and just bought a bottle of wine and cooked at home. The concept of self serve isnt awful, the lack of direction for new people is what made this place a confusing and frustrating place to dine. The amount of employees working seemed as though having waiters and waitresses would be a very doable thing and would make this place a great place to dine. The wine was good and it really is beautiful. The only thing that made it a little better was the band playing outside. They do have little smore kits which you could make your own smores which was neat. I think if you know what to expect, it would be an okay place to dine. Unfortunately, our first time experience was not a good one and we do not plan to return.
I stopped here to visit on a business trip while staying in Mankato as I saw an advertisement in the hotel magazine. Reviews seem. ed ok and checked it out. The price for tastings is great and you get to pick which wines you want. I ended up doing two rounds of tastings. Their Riesling and Chardonnay are extremely good. For the reds I really enjoyed the Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon which are both great. I ended up purchasing a bottle of all four. The service was good but could be better. The first young lady didnt explain the wine tasting and just asked if I wanted to open a tab before giving me any further information. They could use some lessons in customer service and wine guidance to enhance the experience. Overall the wine and atmosphere are great. If I lived here this would have been a great establishment for a wedding. I highly recommend if you are in the area to stop in and have a tasting... Or two.
Horrible customer service. First time ever there, also first time drinking wine and I had ZERO help. The four ladies in the front just put menus in front of us and made sure to tell me "we dont do table side service." No introductions, no questions, and no suggestions on wine, she just left. Minutes later another couple comes in and the employee gave the other two, her complete attention and gave one on one customer service. Also the woman asked for our credit card to hold in the back, but she never asked the other couple.Never having been to this establishment I was definitely expecting to be helped by employees with better attitudes towards new customers, and be treated fairly with the equal amount of attention and customer service. I will never go there again.
Arrived with about 20 people and a cake. Managment would not honor our reservation and wanted to put us by the elevator where they hang coats. Apparently they dont even take reservations....but we made one several weeks ago. We would not plan a birthday party and show up with that many people if we did not have a reservation. Management handled the situation very poorly and were EXTREMELY rude!!! We will never go back!!
La Crescent and Frostbite wines were my favorite. Free half hour tours on the weekend are informative and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Only downside is most other winerys I have been to will give you a free tasting if you purchase a bottle or two of their wines, and this winery does not offer any such deals. Tasting glass is also not included, you have to purchase for $4.
Good food and excellent wine in a fantastic atmosphere! In the summer, music on the patio under the twinkly lights with a bonfire going is an experience to be had, the grounds are pristine. In the winter it is a bit more relaxed but still can get crowded when they have events. Personally, I like going on off hours when there arent so many people there and playing board game.
Overpriced for so-so tasting wines. I did like the Rose but 15 to 22 bucks for so-so wine and 7 bucks for 5 small measured tastes was over priced based on the tastes. We had much better wine and a down to earth atmosphere at Wilde Prairie winery in Brandon SD today. Prices were 14 to 18 and MUCH better. Snooty attitude at Chankaska....Wont be back Didnt buy any bottles here
Terrible experience!! Staff is poorly trained to say the least. If you are not a “member” be prepared to have an uncomfortable experience at best! Management was very rude and seemed to careless about our situation. It is very clear they only care about the bottom line. Not what a Winery is supposed to be about..… so sad!! We will take our business elsewhere.
Great wine and amazing location. Definitely not a wine lover, but have really enjoyed everything I tried. Signed up for the Wine Circle on our second visit. Every person we have brought have loved the wine and location as well. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing evening and good variety of local grown wine.
The best winery in Minnesota! Great wines, wonderful food especially the pizza. I love the chardonnay and Creekside White. Even the reds are wonderful even though I dont like reds normally. The staff is well trained and very helpful during the tasting. No complaints at all. I recommend to everyone that is a wine fanatic.
A nice spot for a Mothers day gift - the tour was interesting and the staff were friendly. The wine wasnt my favorite - perhaps on the lighter side. The food was "OK". It is a lovely - but long - drive from the Twin Cities area. Would give 3.5 stars if I could.
Sven needs to go back to his $1.275 bottle of wine. This place is amazing, top quality technology and equipment, great flavorful wines and a wonderful atmosphere. Very friendly service. Im looking forward to my next visit.
Wines were pretty good and the whiskey was surprisingly good, but the service is incredibly slow, its confusing your first time here and the staff isnt overly friendly.
Hi, I was there last weekend and the weather, the wine, the setting, and the food were all fabulous! Everyone can find a wine at this Winery. Highly recommend.
Beautiful grounds and delicious wine. We didnt try the food, but the brick oven pizzas looked very yummy! Tip- The Marquette is a wonderful local red!
Had a great time, great staff. Then we got the bill. $25 for a Moscow Mule!? Ripoff. Now I know why the price wasnt posted with the "special".
Amazing wine, friendly staff, great pizza, and next to a bubbling creek you can enjoy if you sit outside.
Good wines. In the summer, its nice to grab a bottle and go sit by the creek. Just dont take my spot.
Beautiful grounds, great wine, what a great local option! Some of the best Minnesota wine Ive had
Great for date night or hanging with the girls! Excellent wine, food and atmosphere.
