We were there for the first time this weekend for the Christmas lights. For the price of entry, I think it would have been nice to include a hot chocolate, coffee, or even a s’more, instead of having to pay extra. Brews were suggested at entry. It would have been great to be able to sample the new brew without having to buy, like we can do at the actual brewery. My husband was told that he could get a sample of something as long as he bought a pint. He only wanted a sample of the new brew to see if he wanted that. Maps should have been at an easy accessible location. People were asking me what I had and where I got my map. It would be nice to have suggested walking paths lit with solar lights for people that have never been there before. We weren’t sure if we were supposed to cut across, go around, or what. Plus, the lawn was rutty, and for people that don’t have great balance, that probably wasn’t the best choice. The lights were very pretty, and I really enjoyed looking at them. Most of them you could see from far away, or across the lake. The winery itself seems awesome, the land is beautiful. My comments are for the event itself.

WE LOVE this place! My husband and I came out to Sovereign Estate Winery and had the nicest time. We did a wine tasting, and loved all the wines! The staff was all very friendly and welcoming. After the tasting we had a bottle of wine and spent all afternoon sitting out on the patio, enjoying the beautiful day and views! Lovely winery. Great wine, food, and location :) We will definitely be back!

We recently attended a concert/benefit at Sovereign Estates Winery and it was a wonderful evening start to finish. The wine was wonderful, they had craft and light beer for those who preferred it, non-alcoholic options, great food AND excellent music (look at their calendar with more great performers coming up). The venue is small so I didn't see a bad seat in the house! I know they don't control the weather, but that was wonderful too! Last but not least, they had an area set up to benefit a charity..they took donations but it was low-key pressure and also had some very cool items to bid on/win and other items to buy. Beautiful location, setting and experience...a feel-good evening all around. Headed back soon..

We found this hidden treasure this past spring. We live in the north metro but it is well worth the drive. I bet we have been out there 10 times already with a few more trips planned for this fall. My wife loves their wine so much, we joined their wine club and get excited when the new releases come out. SEW is so much more than wine though...the beautiful setting just off the lake, the food has always been great (try the Cheese Board). We really have enjoyed the music out there on weekends. We bought season tickets to their summer concert series. I recently found out that the winery runs off a solar energy system. Great people, beautiful setting, fantastic food, refreshing wine and good for the planet...Sovereign Estates is a no brain for our free time!

Was a nice outing, the light was nice. ... Entry fee is a bit high at $10 per person... Not worth the price. Staff was not very friendly in the wine tasting building. The guys out side driving the ride was friendly..
