A very nice variety of reds and whites. Some sweet, some dry, and some in between. Very pleasant hostess for our sampling.

Wide River Winery was my first wine tasting experience. It set the bar very high! The wines are all very unique. Our server was definitely what made the experience unforgettable. She gave us chocolate with raspberry wine patiently explaining how a bite of chocolate can change the flavor of the wine. There are a lot of sweet wines to choose... More

The wine tasting was cheap and good. Was given an extra sample of a wine slushy which was good also. The lady we had giving us the samples was very nice.

Tina, Thanks for visiting Wide River WInery. It sounds like you had a good experience except for our road. Unfortunately, there's little we can do about it. We do have tasting rooms in LeClaire and the Village of East Davenport (opening summer 2016). Both of these are on city streets. If there's anything besides paving our road that would earn... More

We wandered into this little gem to do a wine tasting but did not expect much. We were blown away with some of the white and red wines. Their "White Collar Crime, Summer White, Caught Red Handed and their Ms. Issippi Port were outstanding! We easily took a case of variety wines with us. The story behind the names of... More

We visited the winery for an evening. The place is easy to find using google maps. The road is not paved for the last 1 mile. Drive cautiously. The place is really beautiful with a good view of the Mississippi river. The wine tasting costs $6 for 5 samples. The wine collection is good. Overall, A wonderful place to spend... More

My husband and I went here to do a tasting. Staff was friendly, we were given 6 wines to try and received free glasses. Wine is good, and reasonably priced.

Wide River Winery is a wonderful experience. The only disadvantage is the road getting up to the winery is thin and winding gravel. Winter is treacherous. However in the fall it is spectacular. Balconies that over look the colored leaves, sometimes bands play. It is a very nice place to visit in the area.

Ambience- relaxing with a great view. Great for girl time or a romantic evening. Doesn't serve a meal but has minimal appetizers otherwise it would be a 5
