north central iowa winery





We look forward to seeing everyone
at the winery this summer.


The vines may be covered with ice and snow,
but last summer's wine is 
mellowing beautifully in our vats.


We re-open the Saturday of
Memorial Day weekend.


Our award-winning wines
are made completely

from grapes grown in our own vineyard
and within just a few miles of our winery

These wines are currently available at
Louie's Meats, 810 Hwy 18, Clear Lake, IA


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.
