Imagine, if you will, an authentic charming winery
nestled in a quaint historic town producing some of the
areas finest wines. Oak barrels lined up against a
backdrop of gleaming stainless steel tanks full of a
variety of local and imported fermenting grapes. A fine
dining Bistro, featuring an eclectic menu of
chef-prepared gourmet entrees and mouth watering
desserts, with a scenic patio area for outdoor dining.
An extensive gift shop with hundreds of unique items.
Think you are in California?
France? No, you are in Anamosa, Iowa, home of the
Daly Creek Winery.
The Daly Creek Winery, which opened in
May 2004, is named in honor of the owner’s
great-grandfather, Philip Daly, who settled in the area
during the mid 1850’s as an early pioneer immigrant from
The Daly family, which still owns the
farm Philip Daly purchased during the Civil War, is well
steeped in local history over the past 150 years, being
involved in farming, cattle ranching, politics, real estate,
and now a vineyard of French-American hybrid grape vines.
It is the first commercial vineyard in Jones County.
Today, winery owners, Jim and
Michael Langer, the fourth generation of Philip Daly’s
heritage, are continuing the family tradition, by
producing fine wines and great food for our guest’s
enjoyment. The winery is located at 106 North Ford
Street in a former creamery building which was renovated
to adapt to wine production.
