About Minnesota Uncorked

“My favorite way to explore wine is clad in hiking boots, with a glass in my hand”

Lauren launched Minnesota Uncorked™  in 2016 as a passion project to share her love for wine. The project quickly gained a following and currently reaches 5,500 local wine lovers monthly.

The project was founded on her love for Minnesota and other regions producing wines from Cold Climate hybrid grapes, but topics covered here span a broad range of wine, food, and travel. She relishes getting to know the wine growers and winemakers behind the labels, and aims to inspire others to drink more local wine by sharing those stories here.

Lauren is also a Certified Wine Professional (CWP) through Saint Paul College and a student of Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), currently Level II Certified (distinction).

When she is not strolling through vineyards in Minnesota and beyond, she earns her wine budget as a marketing consultant in the wine industry.

Do you have news to share? A product or service that may be of interest to our audience? It doesn’t have to be about wine so long as we can tie it back loosely (and we’re pretty creative at that).  We’d love your press releases sent to news[at]mnuncorked[dot]com.


While we don’t accept paid articles, we’d love to have advertising sponsors (while having a blog is fun, it isn’t free!). Big or small, if you’re interested, let us know: news[at]mnuncorked[dot]com.
