Day trip adventures: A journey through the wine and beer of the tri-states
It’s summertime, and the living is getting to be easier again.

While long-distance vacations might not be the way to go for a lot of people, short day trips and local excursions have a lot to offer.

For your wine- and beer-loving pleasure, we’ve compiled a guide to wineries and breweries in the tri-states. The only criteria was that they be within approximately one hour’s drive of Dubuque — perfect for an afternoon adventure, an early evening excursion or a weekend of wandering.

Many wineries and breweries present live music, featuring local artists. Food offerings range from cheese, crackers and charcuterie boards to wood-fired pizzas and pub grub. Those that don’t prepare food on-site encourage guests to order from nearby eateries or bring picnics or snacks...
