A family owned vineyard in rural Iowa with the touch of elegance of French wines, with a regional identity reflective of our soils and climate using both American and French-American varieties.

Come enjoy an enticing glass of exceptionally delightful wine and gaze over the pastoral rural landscape from the expansive decks with soft music in the background. Select a chair on the front porch or on the deck and relax. Most Fridays there will be live music available. For inclement weather, the large banquet room will be used. (schedule below)

Snus Sundays! Live music every Sunday. Food available from Corn Crib Catering for a nominal charge. (schedule below)

For a real touch of what makes Iowa great just get to know this family and it’s rich Iowa history. Swedish Immigrants, Charles and Hanna Larson, purchased this site in 1878 and the winery stands upon their original homestead. Four generations later, the Larsons continue farming the land.

The vineyards were started in 1999 when first acre of Frontenac and Marechal Foch was planted. Each year was followed with another acre planted of a different variety. In 2003 and 2004, the dream of a commercial vineyard became a reality when Snus Hill Vineyard sold grapes to Summerset Winery.

The Snus Hill Winery was built in 2005 to allow for the wines to be produced at home rather than selling off the grapes to another winery.

The winery has white and reds available and are developing more for your enjoyment.

Spend some time in the Iowa wine country, you will be glad you did.
