We invite adults (over 21 years of age) to sample Summerset Wine at our Tasting Bar. The tasting room and gift shop are always open during regular business hours. Our friendly, experienced, knowledgeable staff will suggest wines, answer questions, and help tasters, from experienced wine lovers to experimenting wine newbees, discover the flavors of Iowa-grown grapes and the award-winning Summerset Wines.
Surprise your friends or out of town guests with a trip to Summerset Winery. Once you arrive, ask your friendly clerk to take your group on a tour of the largest producing winery in the State. It is an educational and memorable experience with a unique and interesting story.

After a trip to the tasting bar, purchase a bottle of your favorite Summerset Wine, some cheese and crackers, and relax for an hour or two with your friends. Hang out on the deck (you can see the Des Moines skyline over the lush landscape) or grab a table and soak up the ambience of the tasting room or Mural room. If you choose, bring a picnic and head to the vineyards. No matter where you land, you'll enjoy your time at Summerset Winery.
If you're looking for that perfect gift for your wine enthusiast, consider a Summerset gift card. Your recepient can choose wine or a treasure from our gift shop. Gift cards may be purchased in any dollar amount at the winery, or call the winery and we can mail it to you or your recepient! How easy is that!
