About Carlos Creek Winery

Carlos Creek Winery is a winery venue with a banquet hall for ALL couples getting married in the greater Minneapolis, Minnesota area. A vintage country venue, this winery features a ceremony location among the trees and a room rich with wooden accents for a couple’s wedding. The venue is located nine minutes from Lake Carlos State Park in Alexandria,MN and roughly two-and-a-half hours from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity

Up to 350 guests can join couples for their wedding at the Carlos Creek Winery. They can begin the day’s events with a ceremony in the beautifully natural outdoor location set up for such events. This wooded ceremony spot surrounds couples and their guests in the trees. Shaded by leaves and branches, only filtered dappled sunlight gets through. A paved path of stone leads the wedding arbor, set upon a small stage, in this romantic grove. The slight height of the platform ensures that all guests in their white folding chairs can see the ceremony unfold. From there, couples can meet up with guests in the reception location, after taking pictures among the fields and grapevines of course. The ceremony location is a stunningly polished room. The space is decorated in sophisticated colors of black and brown, with accents such as wine barrels, a built-in bar, and a stone fireplace. The large space offers plenty of room for dinner and dancing, with a dance floor space reserved on the shining tile floor.

    Best wedding day ever!

    We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day! The staff is absolutely amazing! Our wedding coordinator, Regan, was very prompt with my many many emails of questions and requests. The florist, Mary, did a stunning job with the arbor for the ceremony and centerpieces for the reception. The winery grounds make for beautiful backdrops for photos and having a golf cart included in rental prices to access them was perfect! The entire process was so low stress, with it being almost all inclusive and the winery recommending vendors for the services not provided. We would do everything again, exactly the same way, without a second of hesitation!

    Carlos Creek Winery was an absolute dream location for our wedding. The outdoor ceremony is beautiful, the reception area is warm and inviting, and the staff were professional and friendly. Our guests raved about the service and the wine. I would recommend this location to anyone who is looking for a destination wedding in Minnesota. Living in Minneapolis, it was just a short drive up to Alexandria for our fall wedding. We were lucky enough to have the weather cooler but warm enough for an outdoor ceremony. Our wedding coordinator Melissa did a great job of answering all questions in a timely manner and was super helpful. Our only complaint and this doesn't exactly come from Carlos Creek was the food options. A lot of the reviews I read had guests raving about the food but when we had our tasting with the Depot Catering company, we were a little disappointed in the lack of flavor and scale of the options. It would be great if Carlos Creek had another caterer to choose from. That is truly our only complaint and would 100% recommend and use all over again. Thank you Carlos Creek Winery!
