My friend had her wedding here this fall and it was GORGEOUS! The ceremony took place overlooking the vines, and the venue was perfect for a lively celebration. The winery staff in the tasting room were very informative and friendly. We did some sampling and took (more than) a few bottles home with us. Try the Vidal Blanc white wine,... More

Great Iowa Wines and the staff is really friendly. During the summer months they bring in bands to play on Sunday afternoons.

My husband and I went to Iowa for a wedding, and decided to stay at the Inn located inside of the winery! Ron and the staff gave us a wonderful tour of the property, and we thoroughly enjoyed trying out their excellent wine! Coming from Germany, I can only say fabulous things about our experience. Summerset represents Iowa really well,... More

I recently made a trip back to Iowa for a wedding at Summerset winery. It is a beautiful place to hold a wedding and everyone was so helpful and attentive. The owners were so welcoming and gave us a special tour of the Winery and the Inn. I also rented a room at the Inn and was very satisfied with... More

Me and my wife had our wedding at Summerset Winery this fall. As we're originally from the Des Moines area we wanted something close enough to the downtown Des Moines area, but that would offer a unique experience for our local and out of town guests. Summerset was a great find. The location was beautiful, the price is very reasonable,... More

My wife wrote a review that hit the high lights and low lights of our experience with Summerset Winery. However, my personal interaction with the owner, Ron Marks, needs to be shared to warn others. We had been patrons of Summerset for several years, attending their Sunday music events. We enjoyed the grounds and music. The staff is always helpful.... More

We stopped by to look around and get a few bottles of wine. We liked so many we bought a case. The owner was around and gave us a quick tour of the basement and facilities. Grounds are so nice. We will be back!

As the author of a newly released book, York Street, I contacted Summerset Winery to see about holding a book signing there. I was amazed at the wonderful crowd at the winery for their live music event on Sunday, September 28th. The facilities were fabulous and a great place to hold a book signing. Thanks for the owners Ron and... More

We love going to Summerset Winery. The owner is great, and his sister is too! They are very down to earth and friendly people. They've really got some great wines. If you are a wine drinker you should definitely check them out. We live in Lincoln, NE and make it a point of going there every summer.

I've been here several times. Every time I go the staff is very helpful and friendly. They always explain their wines and help you find the one you want. The winery itself is beautiful and the events (wino wednesday, winery tours, etc.) they host are always fun!
