TASTING ROOM - Opening March 13, 2020
Our downtown 2nd floor tasting room is a welcoming environment for wine lovers or someone wanting to try wine for the first time. Tasting wine should be fun and is always better when shared with friends or family. No previous wine knowledge or experience is needed when visiting The Sycamore Winery. We hope that you will grab a glass of wine, explore the historic charm of our expansive building and relax on the rooftop patio overlooking the city.
No outside food or drinks are allowed, unless reserving a private room.
Wine tastings are $5 and include a sample of five wines. Wine is sold by the glass or bottle to enjoy on site and bottles can be purchased to go. Also available in our tasting room are our cherry and apple "Sin City" ciders - sold in 22oz. bottles.
WINE + CIDER LIST
The Sycamore Winery has partnered with midwest and other rural vineyards and orchards to bring our customers a wide variety of grape and fruit wines. As part of our long-term plans, a small vineyard of grapes will be planted on The Sycamore Winery property to allow for select bottles of estate wine.
