Winery Visits - August 7, 2010

About a dozen brave Purple Footers made the trek to three different wineries, all west of town, and recently opened.
We started at Millner Heritage Winery, located between Kimball and Dassell, then went on to Woodland Hill Winery near Delano, and finished up at Parley Lake Winery outside of Waconia.

Here are some photo high-lights of our Marathon tasting day:
