Iowa Wine Shops, Cellars, and
The rise in the popularity and interest in wine
has resulted in the increase of Iowa wine shops. These wine stores
are more than the usual liquor store. In cities like Fort Dodge, Spirit Lake,
Des Moines and West des Moines there are wine cellars that specialize in fine
IA wines as well as national and international wines. Many offer imported and domestic beers as well as liquor, but a few feature only wines. They usually have an extensive selection of wines and a friendly
and knowledgeable staff that can help you to select the perfect
wine for every occasion. The sommelier or wine steward on staff
is an excellent resource for any questions you have about wine.
IA Wine Shop Wine Tasting
Wine shops in Mason City, Waukon, Shenandoah or
Boone may also offer wine tasting events too. That's right! Many
IA wine cellars will host wine tasting events where customers can
sample new wines and get more detailed information about the wine
regions they come from. Every Iowa wine shop is different. They
each offer unique wines and may specialize in specific wines from
specific IA wineries. Often at these events, the wine shop will
feature wines from a particular winery or a representative from
a winery will come to present their wines and answer questions.
All you need to do is arrive thirsty and ready to taste great wine!
And often the featured wines are available at a savings. You can
also purchase wines by the case if you find one you really love.
If it turns out to be a local wine you love, you can find out more
about that particular winery and make plans to tour that Iowa
winery. So if you want a great selection of wines to choose
from, visit a Back Alley Wine, Old Windmill Cellars, Ingersoll Wine
& Spirits, or 1st Avenue Wine House and see what these and other
excellent IA wine shops have to offer. As always, Wine Bar Wineries
is here to help you find the perfect wine store to buy great wines.
