The winery first operated in a renovated warehouse building near downtown Newton. This was a perfect location for the small winery, and a tasting room was added to allow visitors to come and sample the wines. Over the next several years, the winery grew and began to gain a reputation of producing excellent quality wines. They were fortunate to receive positive reviews in such publications as The New York Times and Wine Spectator. In 2007, it became apparent that the winery operation had outgrown it’s Newton location and needed to expand into a larger building. The Groben family was intrigued by the recent resurgence in downtown Des Moines. Therefore, they located a property near Grays Lake and began construction on the new winery building in fall 2007. The Des Moines winery opened summer of 2008 – Description from dvoristanac

I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas?
