Iowa’s oldest winery

Summerset Winery owners, Ron & Linda Mark started planting grapes on Summerset Ridge in 1989 and became one of the first estate wineries in Iowa. The winery is now over 20 years old and continues to be one of the largest producing wineries in the state. Summerset Winery is a family owned and operated business that works hard to produce award winning quality wines from local grapes. At the core of it all, we believe that wine should be fun and enjoyed by all. Stop by the winery for a wine tasting, sign up for a cellar tour or grab a glass of wine on the decks overlooking the vineyard.

Tasting Room hours

Summerset Winery is open Tuesday- Sunday 10:00am-5:00pm March-December. For visits in January & February please check our Winter Hours. The winery is closed on July 4th, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.



Summerset Winery offers a variety of wine tastings & tours for all types of occasions. Have a special event or questions, contact us!

We offer 3 free wine samples at the bar, then you can purchase by the glass, flight, or by the bottle. We do host weddings and private events, so we require reservations for groups greater than 6. We offer 3 types of formal wine tastings listed below and can be booked online.

Wine is available by the glass, flight, or bottle and can be enjoyed at the winery in our tasting room or on the deck overlooking the vineyard, or be taken home.

We have snacks available for purchase including Milton Creamery cheeses, Amana sausage and other beverages including local beers and soft drinks.

We also have board games and yard games available including a full scale bocci ball court.

Weekdays (Tuesday-Thursday) tend to be quieter and we'd be happy to make special arrangements for larger groups or for corporate outings. Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or special requests at
