Firehouse Wine Cellars (written Sep 08, 2020)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Had a glass of their Syrah. Liked it. Also tried a Frontenac Gris. This white was a little on the sweet side. Probably to be expected with a Frontenac. Liked it too. Didn’t have time to try more. Expect crowds at this one. Probably won’t meet a winemaker as this is a downtown tasting room.

Actually we did visit a few more years later back in 2017. Again, I was not overly impressed with the wine. However, let me state there was nothing wrong with it. It just didn't strike me as outstanding. My wine mentor, Boris, was with us and he was very impressed with the Norton here if I recall correctly. I bought a bottle of the 2015 Norton at his urging. Well, let me tell you. I just opened that bottle today, June 5 of 2020. WOW! My wine mentor, as usual was correct. I just love this 2015 Norton. I am sure the cellar aging since has something to do with it but I am just loving this Norton. It is what I think of as a traditional Norton with just a nod into the style that I think of as a jammy Kansas City Norton. Wonder nose. Earthy, leathery, meaty Norton nose and flavor. Tingles on the tongue on the finish. Then my favorite. That last oxidized drop in the glass with the nutty nose and awesome taste. Noboleis, you do Norton up right.

Park Farm Winery & Bistro (written Jul 13, 2019)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
As beautiful of a winery as you are going to fine ANYWHERE! The building, the grounds and the surrounding rolling hills of eastern Iowa are all something to take in and enjoy. And then the wine. Their Arrowhead Marquette is the best Marquette I have ever had. Until this wine, I couldn't quite grasp all the enthusiasm for this grape we have encountered from midwest winemakers over the years. Now I most certainly can.

Coruce Vineyards and Winery (written Nov 04, 2018)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 2 stars
The tasting room is fairly easy to miss in a strip center. We enjoyed every wine that was poured here. Tessa, our tasting room hostess was very knowledgeable. She is studying winemaking. I really liked their Syrahs. They had several viogniers to try and their reserve was just fab. Our son really liked their 2012 Zinfandel.
