The following is from the vine articles on the Kings Crossing website to give you a better feel for the wonderful time you will experience visiting the winery.
"Rick & Karen Foster started the vineyard in 2001. Planting 150 plants and 800 cuttings in rural Mills county Iowa.

We built the Winery in the summer of 2005. The winery production area was up and running for the 2005 harvest. The first year we product around 1200 gallons of wine.

The tasting room open Memorial Day weekend, 2006.

The significace of the name King’s Crossing Vineyar & Winery has three parts:

1) The name King is a family name on Karen’s side of the family.

2) Rick & Karen both enjoy the medieval genre of books and movies. So we came up with the theme of the winery as medieval pub where a king might stop on his travels thoughout his kingdom. Thus the tie between the family name and a pub. King’s Crossing.

3) If you look at our trademark shield, the long sword represent the Cross of Jesus Christ. Without Christ the winery would never have been possible."
