Wine Trail

The Iowa Wine Trail welcomes Wide River Winery of Clinton as its newest member.  Wide River Winery together with the seven other member wineries invites wine enthusiasts to celebrate Iowa-made wines, paired with heirloom cuisine during their annual fall event.  The Holiday Wine & Food Weekend runs Saturday and Sunday, November 1-2, 2008 from 10 am to  5 pm both days.

Each winery will offer ticketholders unique family recipes paired with equally unique, locally-made wines.  Tickets for the weekend event may be purchased in advance for $25 each or for $35 each on the day of the event.  Single day tickets are also available for $20 each in advance, and $30 the day of the event.  Visitors who attend all eight wineries during the weekend will be included in a drawing for special door prizes.

To purchase tickets, visit any of the Iowa Wine Trail wineries, or call 563-557-3727 or go online to www.iowawinetrail.com.

Each winery has special food and wine pairings.  Some of the treats to look forward to include: Eagle’s Landing Winery of Marquette offers Grandpa’s Reserve white wine paired with a third-generation recipe, Grandma Millie’s Famous Refrigerator Rolls. Sutliff Cider Company of Lisbon will share specialties including Sweet Potato Ravioli with hazelnut brown butter & herb sauce and cider donuts.  Tabor Home Vineyards & Winery of Baldwin pairs onion soup with your choice of their Iowa Lacrosse or Iowa JackSon Red.  Wallace Winery of West Branch will suggest a match between Iowa ham and Iowa Barn Red wine.  Anamosa’s Daly Creek Winery & Bistro invites visitors to sample Czech Stuffed Mushrooms and Grape Kolaches with some of their distinct wines.

 

The Iowa Wine Trail is a cooperative group of wineries of the Upper Mississippi River Valley wine region, which is currently being considered for American Viticultural Area designation.
