This winery is definitely off the beaten path but so worth the drive. The road might be a bit treacherous on a rainy day day but views on a sunny day were spectacular. On top of that is the wine! You can taste, have a glass, buy a bottle or a case. They offer sweet to dry. Lots of great options for all kinds of weather. You wouldn't want to miss out.

Decided to visit this local winery with my friend. I was glad she knew where she was going! Loved the scenic, rural drive through the trees. The view of the river from the top of the hill is beautiful. The wine tasting was free and fun and had plenty of options. A few chips/snacks available but we saw others bring their own food to enjoy on the outdoor patio and would highly recommend that for anyone making a visit.

Very nice, friendly and helpful staff. Have visited several times. The patio area is lovely, great view of the river. I do wish they served some light snacks to go with the wine- cheese & fruit platter would be great.

Winery is set on top of a hill. The view is phenomenal...looks down at the widest part of the Mississippi. Wine pourer was knowledgeable and friendly. The deck where we were "sipping on the Mississippi" was beautiful . Wine tastings are free and they have some beer..

We stopped by Wide River as part of an Iowa Winery tour. The building is great-- lots of seating, very upscale decor, and lots of tasting options. During the tour they had live music and an appetizer buffet. Both were excellent. The view from the patio is excellent, and invites guests to linger. A great addition to a day trip experience.
