Winemakers at Dale Valley Vineyard, which Cityview readers voted as the Best Local Iowa Day Trip, transform a locally grown bounty into a fleet of flavorful elixirs that visitors can sip in a renovated 19th-century one-room schoolhouse. During a tasting, guests tap into a cache of dry, sweet, and sentient wines, such as edelweiss, a white varietal imbued with flavors of green apple, honeysuckle, and pineapple. Raspberries provide the liquid base for V’s Berry, which tucks hints of vanilla and nutmeg under bolder layers of cherry and apple, and sweet peach and tangerine tones help White Schoolhouse Catawba evoke lemon custards of desserts past. After the tasting, customers tote away one bottle of wine and a quartet of souvenir glasses, ideal for at-home merrymaking and single-use maracas.

Budding sommeliers can refine their palates inside Dale Valley Vineyard’s historic digs, renovated to include modern touches such as ceiling fans and a chalkboard. A stroll to the tasting room’s wooden deck reveals expansive vistas of the lush, rolling countryside and the secret migratory paths grapes travel in the summer to avoid becoming raisins. Live entertainment tickles ears on most Saturdays from May through September, culminating in the winery’s annual Winestock summer festival.

Dale Valley Vineyard

Bringing wine to school is typically frowned upon, but the team at Dale Valley Vineyard turned the rebellious act on its head: They brought a 19th-century schoolhouse to their vineyard. Nowadays, it serves as the tasting room for the vineyard that Cityview readers named the Best Local Iowa Day Trip for two years in a row. In the schoolhouse's single room, visitors sample award-winning wines such as White Schoolhouse—a catawba with citrus notes and an evocative chalkboard minerality—and V’s Berry, whose cherry and apple flavors commingle with raspberry and vanilla aromas. Live music entertains visitors most Saturdays from May through September, and the winery’s annual festival, dubbed Winestock, commences in July.
