The vineyard is located on a family farm near Riceville, Iowa. They raised feeder pigs, farrowing sows, and horses back in the '70s and '80s. Nowadays they rent out the farmland and tend to the family vineyard. They planted the first 30 vines in 2010 which were damaged by a tornado on May 22nd, 2011. The roof of the old house landed on the grape trellis which was located 300 feet away from the house. The tornado also destroyed the grain bin and all of the old hog buildings. Since then, the vineyard has expanded from 30 vines to the 550 vines currently growing on the property. 

They grow the following cold-hardy grape varieties:

  • Whites: Brianna, LaCrescent, Frontenac Blanc, Louise Swenson, and Osceola Muscat
  • Reds: Petite Pearl, Marquette, Verona, and Sabrevois.
