Cedar Valley Winery our first Harvest Host Stop

You can blame Technomadia and Gone with the Wynns for todays post. It was their fault for letting us know about this amazing nationwide system pairing RVers with farmers. Kate found a winery in Iowa that was on our way to Chicago so we made the move and stopped at Cedar Valley Winery for the night.


We rolled in a bit late but Pam Miller was happy to welcome us to their property and even let us fill up our water tank. We happily tasted some of their award winning wines and bought a bottle of:

Chambourcin (sham-bor-san)

Dry medium-bodied red wine with a fruity aroma and cherry and earthy/spicy complexities. Our Chambourcin is aged in handcrafted white oak barrels from Missouri.   Chambourcin is a French-American interspecific hybrid grape variety that produces a deep-colored wine with a full aromatic flavor. Chambourcin is often served with red meats, tomato based sauces, mild cheese and dark chocolate (or desserts made from the chocolate), as the flavors of the wine and chocolate intermingle exceptionally well.

We will add Cedar Valley Winery to our list of stops. The good thing is we won’t out of wine if we stay there. Our best wishes to you both and Zeke.
