  • Jasper Winery
    Jasper's modern winery squeezes the life out of central Iowan grapes to create a delicious lineup of colorful wines. The 60-minute VIP tasting gives groups of four or double-four a tour of the winery's chambers and splashes tongues with tastes of all 11 vintages, which include the crisp and citrusy Edelweiss white and the Norton dry red, whose smells of baked fruit awaken connoisseurs to flavors of currant and blackberry with slight hints of cinnamon and mint.

  • Breezy Hills Vineyard
    “How do you take your coffee?” asks Andy Morse, son of Breezy Hills Vineyard owners Darrell and Roberta Morse. “We ask people that a lot.” Here’s what they’ve learned: people who take cream and sugar usually prefer sweet, fruity wines, and black coffee drinkers tend to go for robust, smoky red wines. The staff starts with this simple question because they understand that wine tasting can confound the novice. No snobs, the Morses start off new wine drinkers by introducing them to the basics of tasting and then allowing them to explore for themselves the unique sensory experience of their 17 locally made wines. Handcrafted elixirs such as their popular Misbehavin'—which blends red and white wines to create the pale blush of a sunburned ghost—pair well with the vineyard’s delectable plates of chocolate truffles and nuts.

From their American and French?style grapes, they've crafted a wide variety of award-winning wines, some of which are lovingly named for their beloved cats??and all of which wear the face of a feline on the label. Red, white, ros?, and even dessert and specialty wines create a well-rounded portfolio of varietals, from the bone-dry cabernet sauvignon the Whisker White, with notes of pineapple, mango, and graceful indifference.

  • Stone Cliff Winery
    Stone Cliff Winery sits in the fertile hills of eastern Iowa, near Dubuque. It's where the winery's owner, Nan Smith, grew up, and the place where she and her husband decided to buy a farm and raise their daughters. But their original thoughts of conventional farming turned to winemaking; so in 1996, they planted their first 2,000 grapevines on the property, and the winery has been thriving ever since. Today, the Smiths and their team craft wines ranging from classic cabernet sauvignon to a fruity apple-cranberry wine. Customers can even adorn the bottles with personalized labels to commemorate a special occasion. And patrons don't have to climb Dubuque's hills to sample the winery's vintages?they can visit the tasting room in the historical Star brewery building, on the banks of the Mississippi River.
