Mississippi River Distilling Company
Come visit LeClaire’s own micro-distillery. Owners Ryan & Garrett Burchett, aka “The Burchett Brothers,” create vodka, gin, and bourbon all from local grains.

After touring the facility and seeing for yourself the highly adored “Rose” (the still that makes it all happen) in her element, try some of your favorites in the grand tasting room.

Wide River Winery Tasting Room & Courtyard
The jury is in! And the lovely ladies of Wide River Winery are found guilty…of becoming wine masters ahead of this time. Attorney and now expert wine maker, Dorothy O’Brien, began making wine for her family in 1997. Today, this women- & family-owned and operated winery continues the legacy of friendly service with fresh takes on traditional wine tasting.
True to her roots, Dorothy curated some whimsical names for her wines like Sweet Justice and Felony Red. Stop in to see (and sip) each one! Plus, cool down with a pitcher of their famous wine slushies.
You can even keep your souvenir wine tasting glass!
