Nestled in the hills of rural Iowa, Snus Hill Winery hosts a diverse range of regional wines crafted by in-house vintners. Siphon samples from stores of the winery’s award-winning inventory, including a lauded edelweiss, laced with floral notes, and the dry Snus Hill red, imbued with suggestions of oak, smoke, and cherry. The 90-minute winery tour leads curious groups on a thorough behind-the-scenes view of the estate and its operations, giving visitors access to everything but the bedtime stories that winemakers read to each crop in the night. A wine-tank tasting invites oenophiles-in-training to sip prebottled elixirs, and the wine 101 class crams craniums with vital wine vocabulary and facts. A wine-terminology handout keeps the fruits of the experience fresh and plump in pupils’ minds, and an engraved glass reminds sippers of the vineyard’s sweeping panoramas and how many e’s are in the word “estate.”

Charles and Hanna Larson, Swedish immigrants and ancestors of the vineyard’s current owners, purchased the homestead that supports current crowds of vines in 1878. Four generations of Larsons turned the soil and nourished themselves from the land, developing a pastoral lineage that thrums in the earth and the wines that Snus Hill produces today. The current Larsons first seeded their earth with frontenac and marechal foch grapes in 1999, gradually expanding to their current multigraped offerings.

Snus Hill Winery

For four generations, the Larson family has farmed the verdant parcel of land where Snus Hill Winery now sits, carrying on and improving upon the traditions of their Swedish immigrant ancestors who settled there back in 1878. From their American and French–style grapes, they've crafted a wide variety of award-winning wines, some of which are lovingly named for their beloved cats––and all of which wear the face of a feline on the label. Red, white, rosé, and even dessert and specialty wines create a well-rounded portfolio of varietals, from the bone-dry cabernet sauvignon the Whisker White, with notes of pineapple, mango, and graceful indifference.
