Wines

We carry a nice variety of wines from John Ernest Vineyard which is located near Tama, IA. Purchase by the bottle and enjoy over a relaxing lunch. Choose a few bottles from this selection of native Iowa wines to take home and share with family and friends.  

*Please note our wine selections may vary due to availability from JEV. 


Sweet wines include: 

Hillside Heaven - a Tea Room favorite, according to JEV it pairs well with ham, however we think it pairs well with everything!


Dusty Road -  JEV's most popular wine made with 100% LaCrosse grapes grown in their vineyard. Similar to Moscato di' Asti but without the bubbles.


River Bottom Red - pairs well with anything chocolate!


Timber Ridge Red - red wine that has a delicious strawberry aroma and flavor.


Bohemie Blush Rose - has twice been a place winner at the Manchester Rhubarb Fest

and pairs well with wild game, pork, duck, or beef. 


Semi sweet wines include: 

Willow Mist - a white wine with a pear finish made from 100% Edelweiss grapes.  

Iowa's version of Pinot Grigio.


Ernest Delight - a complex semi dry red wine that stands alone. Made from 100% St. Croix grapes. A very earthy, smokey flavor with dark berry undertones. 


Cranberry Wine - tart, yet very smooth with pleasing after taste.  Pairs well with pork, duck, and poultry.


Dry wine:

​Merlot - Not your traditional Merlot.  A wonderful dry, red wine with a smooth light oak finish.  Great with beef and pizza
