Wineries we will visit include:
Summerset Winery Celebrating its 20th year, Summerset Winery produces award winning Iowa wine from locally grown, central Iowa grapes. The winery and tasting room are nestled on 12 acres of vineyard just north of Indianola and the estate offers an oasis of lush landscaping, expansive decks and terraces. Our visit will include a tour of the winery, tastings and a cheese sampling.

Two Saints Winery Located in the picturesque rolling hills of Warren County, Two Saints Winery is a family owned boutique winery and vineyard. Using a majority of Iowa grapes they offer a wine for every taste from sprightly sweet whites to sultry dry red wines. Tour their vineyards or hang out on their wraparound deck and drink in the view of the surrounding woodlands while you are there.

Covered Bridges Winery A relaxed, casual winery located in the hills of Madison County, Covered Bridges Winery produces and sells 100% Iowa-made wine. The winery is owned by two families, the Fifos and the Boyles and they insist that their best wine is “whichever one you like to drink.” We will sample several of their award-winning wines on our visit.

Everyone welcome! Open to all IVMA members, their friends and family!
