Thank you!
About 200 people attended our last music event on Friday, August 5th.  Thank you to everyone who helped make this season our best season ever.  After 12 years, we are retiring from wine tasting and retail sales at our 99 Bottles Tasting Room.  Our wines are still available for purchase at Louie's Meats (Hwy 18 in Clear Lake, IA)

We have truly loved spending time with all of our "regulars" and with all the new faces too.  We have been blessed by this community and this experience.  Thank you!



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.

All of our wines are made with Iowa-grown grapes.  Our grapes are grown on site with varietals developed specifically for our climate.  These varietals create unique and delicious wines, specific to this area of the midwest.  




Camping on The Hill
Whether you're a tent, RV, or under-the-stars camper, we've got you covered.


Pitch your tent among the grapevines, or use the electric hookups for RVs.  Phenomenal 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside, grapevines, and rural sunrises and sunsets.  Quiet, peaceful, and relaxing!  Very minimal light pollution allows for unrivaled stargazing at night. 


Just a short walk from the campground, the 99 Bottles Winery tasting room features multiple award-winning wines. 

 Amenities include on-site restrooms and showers. Tables, fire pits, and firewood are also available.  


Nearby attractions include nature hikes at Eagle Lake or Pilot Knob State Park (both ~10 minutes by car), the beaches and picturesque downtown of Clear Lake(~20 minutes by car), and Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in Mason City.
