We discovered this gem while on the Iowa Wine Tour last fall and have been back again. It is a beautiful ride through the country side. You are greeted by this big ol' dog that is friendly as can be only wanting to be petted. The tasting room is fun. Lots of personalities behind the bar with great recommendations. Be... More

Went here with a group of women to snowshoe at the acres of woodland surrounding the vineyards. A beautiful scenic area. The chateau was also very nice with a large tasting room, fireplace and seating for conversation. It would be a great place to have a party or reception. Wine is delicious. Bought several bottles.

We decided that Saturday was perfect to do some Leaf Gazing with some Wine Tasting to top off the day. It was a good plan! Though we were a little early on the fall color as we drove North along the Mississippi River Road we found an excellent display of color as viewed from the back deck of our destination,... More

We were visiting e Field of Dreams and came across this winery. Totally unexpected!!! We went in and Christie served us. She was friend Y and knowledgable and we had a great time.

Wines were just ok nothing to brag about. Didn't buy any. They need better servers ones that know about the wines. The scenery outside was nice .the drive was very pretty to the lane to winery

Beautiful location, wonderful wine! We love going to Toast and Jam during the summer. The Sunday Afternoon wine is by far my favorite!

My fiancé and I had a very bad experience with Park Farm. I've been going to Park Farm since it opened so decided to check it out as a possible wedding venue. We received a wedding contract from the event coordinator, reviewed it carefully, made the decision to hold our wedding and reception at Park Farm and started planning. Over... More

I have been to Park Farm Winery several times now and they never disappoint. The wines are excellent and we always find a new one to try. And now with their pizzas, it just gives us more reason to spend an afternoon out there. Love the view and the service!

For me personally, Park Farm tasting room felt like it was trying too hard for upscale and came off kind of cold. Lacked the warm personal atmosphere of wineries. The server's description sounded memorized right off the label and I wondered if she even tasted them. She lacked the pride, love, understanding of wine I usually feel in a tasting... More
