Haskell’s has a long history in Minnesota. Their start goes all the way back to 1934. Over the years, Haskell’s has served the White House, Buckingham Palace and more. Today, Haskell’s has thirteen locations in Minnesota. The Farrell family took over the business in 1970. They have a lot of pride in promoting things local and Minnesotan. That includes some of the cheeses featured on their menu.
This February, downtown Minneapolis will be full of football fans. There are several events planned for the big game. Haskell’s is a great spot to visit to warm up, eat and to have a drink. Haskell’s Wine Bar just opened in December. It features more than fifty wines, sandwiches, cheeses, homemade crackers, craft beer, breakfast food and more.
Ted Farrell of Haskell’s says they will continue to introduce new wines to their wine list. Ted introduced Emily Engberg to Chateau Tour Leognan. It’s a white wine that tastes a bit like a sauvignon blanc, but has a little bit of an oaky flavor added in. He also showcased the Wind Storm Zinfandel and the Le Val Summit Brut Rose. The variety of options is perfect for the wine lover and the person who is new to drinking wine.
The Haskell’s Wine Bar has happy hour specials. It’s a great spot to meet some friends after a work or to stop in to grab a bite to eat before you head out on the town.
