Barn Quilt & Wine Tours

Join us to view great art, learn history and enjoy award winning wines! We are pleased to offer Carver County’s Barn Quilt Tours, with Tour Host Janet Fahey, and showcase our beautiful vineyards and estate. Accompany us on this popular day trip destination and experience how community, countryside and culture meet. Transportation will be via Sovereign Estates luxury 16-passenger shuttle bus.

Barn quilts are quilt patterns drawn to scale and painted on wooden panels that are hung on exterior walls of historic barns. These beautiful pieces of artwork highlight the art of quilting while showcasing Carver County’s historic agricultural icons. Learn the stories behind the quilt block selections.

We’ll tour the countryside and see a number of barn quilts, view the BQ Pearson Farmvineyards at Sovereign Estate, our new barn quilt, the estate grounds and our lakeside views, while enjoying a relaxing lunch and wine (non-alcoholic drinks available).
