Hello Wine Friends!

While it may be hard to believe springtime is only a few weeks away and as we look into our vineyard, with the snow covering the ground, it's nice to know it won't be long before you�ll find us busy pruning our vineyard and enjoying the warm sunshine on our faces.

It's a special time of year for us when we can spend extra special, quality time with our customers.  We enjoy catching up with our old friends, sharing our passion for our wines, and meeting new friends.  It's a time for reflection and anticipation as we get ready for warmer weather.

We'd love to have you visit us this early spring.  We're open Tuesday-Saturday: 10am to 5pm; Sunday: 1pm to 5pm; and closed Mondays. 

Hope to see you soon!
Ken & Carolyn


OUR WINES ARE QUALITY WINES!  Wines with Iowa Quality (IQ) Wine Consortium seals have been independently tested and quality approved so choose confidently and enjoy Iowa Quality wine!  We're pleased to report our newest entries, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, have just received the IQ seal having passed all the quality wine standards. Cheers to winemaker, Ken, for making such superb wines. 15 of our 19 are IQ certified!

FUN WINE TRIVIA: In ancient Greece, a dinner host would take the first sip of wine to assure guests the wine was not poisoned, hence the phrase "drinking to one's health." "Toasting" started in ancient Rome when the Romans continued the Greek tradition but started dropping a piece of toasted bread into each wine glass to temper undesirable tastes or excessive acidity.
