Went here for a wedding reception. It was sleeting and snowing and the place was still beautiful. Definitely a place to consider if planning a wedding. Had a very enjoyable experience.

The Iowa landscapes just got back into grape production in the last 30 years or so, when small wineries began to spring up around the countrysides. We are fortunate to have one of them on the north side of Ames. It does take some time...More

Granted it's been a couple years since I was there, but I wouldn't want to drink any of the wines I tasted. I've worked many aspects of wine production and sales and most of the wines I tasted were flawed. It is a picturesque place...More
