For us, great wine comes from grapes grown in the rich Iowa soil. We’re known for dry reds that fill drinkers with the warmth of the Midwestern sun. And our sparkling whites are fermented a second time in the bottle to ensure your glass is filled with tiny, effervescent bubbles. Our wines are also estate-bottled, which means we control the entire process starting from planting and ending with corking. We’ll help you pick out something that fits your palate, pairs with a meal, and we'll show you around our vineyard too. Even though our wines are internationally recognized, they’re grown right here in Dubuque, and honestly, we wouldn’t have it any other way.Plan your Barrel Head Winery visit and explore what else you can see and do in Dubuque using our Dubuque online tour planner.
