Favorite Wine: Iowa Dry Red Leon Millot

Visited this winery heading into the Easter Weekend 2015. We had heard and read good reviews of this winery for their red wines and we were not disappointed. John, the owner and winemaker greeted us. He is a gracious host and just a little bit ornery (in a good way). And very proud and passionate about his work. If I was him, I would be too. For this eastern Iowa/upper Mississippi region, I would rate this the best dry red line-up overall. I like Wollersheim's Marechal Foch (locally grown) and Pinot Noir (not locally grown) for those two varieties better. But overall I give Barrel Head the nod for best dry red lineup overall in this area. My favorites were 1. Iowa Dry Red Leon Millot; 2. Iowa Dry Red Noiret; 3. Iowa Dry Red Select Table Wine. Incredible quality off of these couple acres. I would tell you more about what I like about these three wines but there is none left in my cellar as they were quickly consumed and enjoyed when we got back home. We're going to restock on our next trip to Wisconsin.

Favorite Wine: Iowa Dry Red Table Wine

Spent a lovely afternoon with the owners, John and Karen Burns, after they brought in the harvest today. Met some wonderful people, drank some delicious wine and bought a couple bottles to enjoy later. Relaxed and charming atmosphere made friendly by conversation, good wine and lots of laughs. I highly recommend a visit here and they used to make the wine for the local monastery, Jesse James' sister may have lived in their home and so much historical lore and artifacts lovingly restored and placed on site. I will be back!

Favorite Wine: 5 yr. old Table Red

I love dry red's and this place has it. Have been to small wineries in California and this place reminds of there. I was with relatives, called ahead and received a personal tasting session. Reasonably priced, left with a case on my teachers salary.
