Three area wineries have been named to Minnesota's top 10 by the Best of Minnesota website. Alexis Bailly Vineyards of Hastings leads the way at No. 1. Founded in the late 1970s, "the granddaddy of Minnesota wineries" as the website calls it, Alexis Bailly stakes claim to being the first commercial winery to grow and use grapes grown in the state. "Although it's been best known for its dessert wines, Bailly's maturing vineyards are now producing grapes that make smooth and complex reds," the judges note.
