Dining Out

February is here, and the countdown to amore is on—but we all know planning for Valentine’s Day can bring stress that’s anything but romance-inducing. Lucky for us, the St. Croix River area is blossoming with high-quality wineries, all within an easy drive.

Whether you are planning an intimate summer date or a casual night out with friends, nothing quite compares to enjoying a cocktail and alfresco appetizers with unparalleled views of the lush St. Croix River Valley.

In a world that’s transfixed by “the new” and “what’s trending,” there also seems to be a renewed interest in the nostalgic traditions that somehow withstand an ever-evolving popular culture.

A natural divide separating the borders of two neighboring states, the St. Croix River has provided Minnesotans and Wisconsinites with commerce, transportation and sustenance since the first American Indians settled on its shores.
