- FINE NORTH IOWA WINES -
Thanks for a great season!
We had a great harvest and grape stomp and are now closed for the season. Please contact us if you're planning an event and would like to work with 99 Bottles! If you're interested in a t-shirt or gift card, please shoot us an email and we can get you one!
The grapes are all picked and have undergone their primary fermentation. The unique weather this summer promises to produce some delicious wines for 2021.
Thanks to everyone who helped with harvest or who stopped by to sip some wine and visit. Thanks also to all our campers this year! We so enjoyed meeting you all.
We hope all the farmers out there have a safe and trouble-free harvest.
Until next season,
Our wines are available at:
Louie's Meats in Clear Lake and Gifts Sew Sweet in Britt.
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.

...and a good time was had by all!
Mr. Vee, a three-man , very versatile band,
entertained at the winery on Friday night, August 7th.
Thank you to the 90+ people who joined us for a
of great music outdoors,
relaxation, and escape from the cares of the day.
Our wines are available at:
Gifts Sew Sweet in Britt, and Louie's Meats in Clear Lake.
