The Crane & Pelican turns 8 years old this fall and we are proudly celebrating with this wine dinner. Our mission is to bring you quality made from scratch food, served by a professional & friendly staff, in the beautiful and historic Dawley House. Thank You for all of your support as we look forward to many more years of serving the Quad Cities! Tonight we are proud to present to you the Wine Enthusiasts American Winery of the year Bonterra. Bonterra was founded on the philosophy that farming organically produces the purest, most flavorful fruit. This holistic approach balances the land & surrounding habitat of wasps, birds & wildlife to produce wines of unmatched flavor and distinction.
