Summerset Winery – Indianola, Iowa

Summerset Winery.jpg Summerset Winery – Indianola, Iowa

Opened in 1997 the Summerset Winery has 12+ acres of grapes at their own winery, with 9 varieties of grapes to enjoy.

It takes a special talent to be able to dream and then put that dream into reality, which is what the Mark’s have done at their winery in Indianola. Just minutes south of Des Moines the winery offers not only great wines but a fabulous tasting room and banquet rooms for the public.

French hybrids and American varietals make up what is now the Summerset Vineyard. Exploring the details of making wine has been an interest of the owner since he was a small boy, as an adult he traveled to Italy and was exposed to more wine making information which he has brought home with him to implement in Indianola.

The wines are available for purchase not only at the winery but at a number of locations throughout Iowa.

The exploration of wines continues as they develope new types of wine to satisfy even the most discriminating wine lover.

Take a tour of their winery, taste the different types of wine, enjoy a day in the country and meet some extrodinary people while visiting the Summerset Winery.

Summerset now offers Sunsets at Summerset!

After a hard work week the Mark’s invite you to relax among the lush vines and bask in the ambience of the winery most Friday’s from 5:30 – 8:30 PM. No cost for admission. If you’re not familiar with our wines you may sample and then purchase a bottle for your enjoyment. We also offer cheese and crackers and other goodies to tempt your palate. Weather permitting bands will perform outside – but the bands perform rain or shine! Same rules apply as Sunday Tunes. Please be aware that the concerts are paid for by the purchases of wine, so enjoy the concert and sample the wines, we hope you find the ones you enjoy will purchase some and will continue to visit us.
