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!
With this year's COVID challenge to entertainment, 99 Bottles' outdoor activities were the ideal way to enjoy the summer.
Live music, along with the annual grape picking party, were enjoyed by many.
Sitting under the winery's huge shade tree next to the barn was an ideal spot to unwind with friends on a Saturday afternoon.
Many of you gathered in our relaxing outdoor environment to share a bottle of our never-left-the-farm wine.
Our wines are available at:
Gifts Sew Sweet in Britt, and Louie's Meats in Clear Lake.
Beautiful rolling hills, pastures, and grape vines make a unique backdrop to your wedding or other event. Contact us about our tasting room, honeymoon cabin, bunkhouse, or vineyard rental, special wine pricing, and suggestions for planning your special event!
