Jo Daviess County is home to four vineyards. Now that’s what we call a great weekend of laughter and fun!  Award-winning, estate-grown wines are the showpieces of our local vineyards, along with other great wines that have amazing taste, legs and aromas. Here’s another interesting fact you may not have known. Because of its unique geographic and topographic environment, Jo Daviess County is in the lower portion of the Upper Mississippi River Valley American Viticultural Area. That makes it the ideal location to grow Marechal Foch, St. Croix and Frontenac grapes. Stop by any of our wineries for a unique tasting of our regional wines.
