Inn Style

Iowa pioneers built this building in the 1840's. The Inn sits atop the Wide River Winery's tasting room in Le Claire. While restoring we discovered a tunnel that was part of the Underground Railroad during the Civil War. 

Linger over a bottle of wine in the courtyard for a European experience.

Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

Dorothy O’Brien began growing grapes and making wine for her family in 1997. The winery opened the Le Claire Tasting room in 2011 and added the Wide River Inn in 2014.

Family members made this winery go and grow. Dorothy’s daughter, Ann Pelton, and sisters, Martha O’Brien and Ceil O’Brien, focus on marketing and the business side of the winery.

Inspiration for many of the wine names come from the family’s law heritage. Dorothy is an employment law attorney and her husband, Charlie Pelton, is a retired Clinton County judge. Lots of other lawyer family members have been known to sample wine as part of the never ending quest for top quality wine.

Wide River Winery is our way of adding value to the area and sharing wine made from the goodness of the earth. We hope to see you soon!
