I am a self admitted wine snob. I really want to enjoy Iowa wines, grapes grown in Iowa. I just can't. However, Daly Creek does bring in grape juice from California to make some of their wines. Daly Creek does a very nice job with several of their wines, including their signature wine Penitentiary Red.
Beyond the good wines, Daly Creek has a small bistro. I have eaten here on several occasions. Every meal has been very good. From the Tuscan meatloaf to the 12 layer lasagna to the pizza, Daly Creek does a very nice job of recreating some Italian staples.
Last but certainly not least, the owners of Daly Creek are very nice people. They have a passion for what they do. I have enjoyed speaking with them.
If I have any issues, it is that the outdoor restaurant area needs a little TLC. It just looks worn.
That should not stop anyone from making the journey to Daly Creek, Make a day trip to Anamosa. Have lunch and taste some good wines. Not a bad way to spend a day!
