It was a beautiful day to stop in for wine tasting and sit on the deck to enjoy a bottle. This was a pleasant spontaneous way to spend a couple hours.

We stopped on a Sunday afternoon and felt fortunate that there was live music on the deck, which had a wonderful view. What a great way to spend the afternoon, good friends sipping wine and listening to music.

We serve beer (Great River Brewery Pale Ale & Bud Light) at the winery in Clinton. At tasting rooms in the Village of East Davenport and Le Claire we sell wine by the bottle.
