At Two Saints Winery, local vintners spread their wine wisdom during two-hour tasting classes. Students take steps toward becoming bona fide aficionados as they learn about the appearances and subtle flavors of various sippables. They'll also cultivate matchmaker talents, becoming versed in the art of properly pairing wines with meals and Snack Packs. A winemaker will also discuss the finer points of purchasing and storing wines, such as not storing bottles at the end of a bowling lane. Newly minted connoisseurs sample the winery's house-made varietals and take home a complimentary wine glass as a badge of wine-tasting competency.

Two Saints Winery ferments only authentic Iowan grapes grown in its 10 acres of vineyards. Its 5,700 vines produce as many as 40 tons of Iowa-sprouted grapes in a season, which wine mavens use to craft more than 15 varieties of wine. Like speaking in a faux-British accent, the grapes' unique homegrown flavor charms locals and visitors alike.

Two Saints Winery

Two Saints Winery holds fast to the belief that wine should be representative of its region. That's why to create its award-winning Iowa wines, Two Saints uses only grapes from its own property or grapes grown at local vineyards. Embedded within the rippling countryside of rural Warren County, the facility produces up to 30,000 bottles per year. And instead of using juices retrieved from faraway sources, such as California or the mini refrigerators inside seashells, Two Saints spurns flavor enhancements and lets the natural flavors of Iowa's land emerge by aging bottles for at least a year. Customers, meanwhile, can enjoy those products right at the winery, especially during tastings and live events held frequently on the property. During the wine tasting each customer will choose four wines from an extensive wine list. Then they will compare the varying levels of body, tannin structure, sweetness or dryness, and fruity or earthiness in the wines.

Terry at Two Saints was so nice. She took our last minute reservation and treated us so nicely. She really knows her stuff and it shows. Two Saints Winery is a gem that is worth a trip out to Stuart, IA.
