Stone Cliff Winery, one of the first wineries in Iowa, operates a tasting room and wine bar in Dubuque's Star Brewery Complex overlooking the river (the vineyard is 10 miles away). A $5 tasting includes five wines of your choice and an engraved wine glass souvenir. Munch on a mix of oyster crackers and chocolate chips or order nibbles like crackers, cheese, salami or a fruit platter. In the evening, you can also order chocolates, appetizers and pizzas.
Evening entertainment includes karaoke and live music. The winery now offers a mystery dinner theater event; check the website for dates.
