Western Iowa Grape Growers Association
The fertile soil of the Loess Hills boasts a rich history, dating back to 1857, of sprouting wine-yielding fruit. Under the umbrella of the Western Iowa Grape Growers Association, a confederacy of local wineries opens its doors to host informative tours, tastings, and seminars on extracting rumors from grapevines. Palate-broadening enophiles can peruse the listings of area award winners, and at-home winemakers will enjoy Pick Your Own Grapes get-togethers and amateur-level awards. Other events include annual festivals, contests, and elegant wine dinners.
