north central iowa winery
Our award-winning wines are made only from our own grapes grown on site as well as a partnering local grower. We make all our wines on site, and are proud to share this year's wines with you!
Bring snacks or a picnic and share a bottle of our wine with family and friends. Relax under the shade tree next to the barn or inside our rustic tasting room. Kids are welcome.
About the vineyard & winery
& the folks who run the place.
This is where we raised our family. The remnants of a tree house, a sand pile, and the old swing set are footprints left by the kids who are the sources and subjects of our wine labels.
99 Bottles Winery features a variety of white and red wines ranging from dry to sweet. Grapes used in our wines come from our own vineyard and never leave the farm. Additional grapes grown within a 15-mile radius by our local growing partners complete our supply.
We do not import juice.
99 Bottles is run by husband & wife team, Mark & June Newman. The first grapes were planted in 2007.
In 2013, we added a wine cave, and the 99 Bottles tasting room was opened in 2014.
