Hello Wine Friends!

Thanks for making our Spring Open House the biggest and best event to date!   We had visitors from all over Iowa come to enjoy an afternoon at the winery, listen to some live music, enjoy our wines, take a wagon ride, and just enjoy a day with friends and family. 

With all of the recent rain and cool temperatures our vineyard is growing like mad and the landscape around us is a brilliant green.  We know your summer schedule is very busy and we hope you can fit us into your summer plans by making a trip out to the winery soon.

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

Hope to see you soon!

Ken & Carolyn
