Grape Escape Vineyard and Winery:
As with many people today, we were intrigued by the possibility of a "escape" from the 9 - 5 routine and decided to pursue a business that allowed us time to be together doing something that we both enjoyed.

As with many people today, we were intrigued by the possibility of a "escape" from the 9 - 5 routine and decided to pursue a business that allowed us time to be together doing something that we both enjoyed. In 2003, we began planting grape vines, and we haven't looked back! Our Grape Escape had begun! As our interest in growing grapes developed, we decided to take it a step farther and renew our interest in wine-making. In 2006, we ordered winery equipment, and that year, we produced 6000 gallons of wine using many of our own grapes and grapes from three other Iowa vineyards. Currently we have about 8 acres of grapes and have purchased grapes from 15 other Iowa vineyards. We are excited about our venture and have short and long term goals for continued growth and expansion. Eventually, we plan to build a large winery building with expanded production capacity, storage, party and event areas, a kitchen, and a large tasting room. As our business grows, we long to share our excitement and our wines with you and help facilitate some great escapes of your own! Our hours are: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Noon to 7 p.m. and by appointment. Read less
