One of the most popular "things to do" in our area is visiting our many wineries. You can sample many of their award winning wines along with purchasing your favorite ones! Many offer food & entertainment, so you need to make them a destination stop while you are staying with us. Here's some of the local wineries we recommend when you come to the RiverView Inn at Alma.
Perched atop the Alma Bluffs in Buffalo County, Danzinger Vineyards overlooks the Mighty Mississippi River. We invite you to come take in the view while enjoying a glass of one of our finest wines on our patio. Our vineyard is currently 18 acres and was started in 2003 and our beautiful tasting room was opened in 2010. We are only 4 minutes away from the RiverView Inn at Alma!
Maiden Rock Winery & Cidery is a small, family-owned business near the quaint village of Stockholm. We started in 2008 and this was not our first venture, as we had established and ran The Good Apple, while developing our apple orchard – Maiden Rock Apples – and learning how to make wine and cider. This approach has resulted in our winning awards in international competitions – sometimes out-competing other cideries and wineries that may be much bigger and a much broader distribution. We are located only 33 minutes from the RiverView Inn at Alma.
The winery name – Bellezza, the Italian word for beauty – is inspired by our area's stunning river bluffs and sparkling Lake Pepin views. Building materials and colors were taken from the landscape in order to create a space that would live in harmony with its surroundings. The architectural style is inspired by century old villas of southern Europe, with several stucco and stone buildings surrounding a central piazza. We are only 22 minutes away from the RiverView Inn at Alma!
Seven Hawks Vineyards is located one mile north of Fountain City, Wisconsin, on steep blufflands overlooking the Mississippi River Valley. Our vineyards include almost 18,000 northern hybrid vines, making us one of the largest vineyards in the upper Midwest.
Our tasting room and wine bar are located in Fountain City at 17 North Street , an 1870’s renovated gem, one of the many fine old buildings in historic Fountain City, which began in the 1840’s as a stop-off for early river boat traffic, and has remained a true river town ever since. We are only 19 minutes away from the RiverView Inn at Alma.
