Do not miss this winery.

Lovely, welcoming winery on the banks of the Mississippi. Wonderful stop on the Great River Road between Dubuque and Davenport. Good food, wine, view and company. Don't miss it.

We've been fans of Wide River for years now, but since opening the tasting room down river in Leclaire, we don't get to the actual winery as often as before. Wide River offers enough sweet wines to satisfy our needs. Weekends on the deck often have a great singer/entertainer to add to the great scenery overlooking the Mississippi where it... More

My husband and I stopped by this past Saturday afternoon. The staff and patrons were very friendly. We did the tasting for $7. (5 tastings and a wine glass) The road up to the winery is not very wide, so drive slow. The view is amazing and there is a nice patio for summertime.

I was in nearby Clinton doing a "Santa Claus and the Elf" outing, and we decided to stop here for a fun afternoon. Boy, am I glad we did! What a spectacular view! We were delighted by some of the wines we sampled, and each couple brought home 6 bottles each of their favorites! Go there, it is worth your... More

I'd read a lot about the "trail" to the winery, so I let Hubby drive :) It was less than a mile of one-lane trail, with a few places to let cars pass. I wouldn't try it if it was muddy though. But being from SD, the trail was not that big of a deal. We encountered no cars coming... More

The winery is in a rather remote area above the Mississippi. The last weekend of October. Colors were vibrant and the view was unbelievable. We found several wines we really liked.

This sits atop a high bluff overlooking the Mississippi River where the dam has created a very wide and shallow river. The family home has the best view, but the wine bar is fun. Hiking n the woods is als available. They make good wine for Iowa. Felony Red is our favorite.

While Clinton Iowa has seen better days, places like this winery will help rebuild good feelings about this beautiful spot on the mighty Mississip. The wine servers were knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery was magnificent and the wines were very unique...we took three bottles home. The wines have creative legal names.
