Thank you to everyone
who made this past season wonderful!
We enjoyed meeting many new faces
and welcoming back our "regulars".
Watch our website and Facebook
for upcoming bottling parties.
Although we are closed for the season,
our wines make great Christmas gifts, and can be purchased
from Louie's Meats, Hwy 18, Clear Lake.
May the upcoming holidays be filled with blessings
of love and family for you,
as we celebrate the birth of our Lord.
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.
