We stayed with my wife at the Summerset Inn for the week-end. It's close to Downtown Des Moisnes. We had such a good time ! The staff was super friendly and made sure we have an unforgettable stay. Ron, the owner, is really passionate about wine. He walked us around the vineyard answering our questions. On Sunday, there was a... More

We first went to Summerset Winery for a wedding. The location is beautiful, as was the wedding! No need for fancy decorations the natural setting among the grapevines was breathtaking! We stayed at the B&B on the property which the wedding party had rented, which was perfect for back yard BBQ's and spending time with everyone in town for the... More

Please keep your children away from their dog they let run free in their winery. My wife and I were at a wedding when my 2 year old daughter reached down to pet him, after my wife did and thought he was nice. The dog jumped up and nipped her in the face. The owners assured us that the dog... More

Summerset Winery is one of the first on the "new generation" of Iowa wineries. Ron and Linda have established a beautiful vineyard and winery. They welcome visitors and their staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Their wines are very good. They offer music on Sunday afternoons - outside is the spring through fall and indoors in the winter. They bring... More

Summerset Winery has been growing in popularity for some years now, and I have a soft spot for them since my family once owned part of the land and pastured cattle there. Great Sunday concerts and fun events. Definitely worth a visit. Berry picking nearby.

Visit Summerset Winery For their Sunday Tunes every Sunday year round (on the lawn in summer, inside banquet hall in winter). What a good time. Great bands, sitting on the lawn or patio with friends and family. A great selection of wines for every palet. People of all ages dancing, relaxing with friends and enjoying the great hospitality of Ron... More

When we arrived, the Winery was having it's Sunday winefest event. We wine tasted for awhile, and then purchased a bottle of wine. For a fee, we joined with other patrons in an upper room in the main building for festivities and music. Many people had brought their own food and were having an indoor picnic due to inclement weather.... More

I went by myself on a weekday afternoon while visiting Indianola., no special events going on at the winery. I spent a lovely hour or so, chatting with Deb at the tasting bar and trying wonderful wines. The staff was very friendly, outgoing, helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The drive to the winery is beautiful - through the Iowa countryside and... More

My wife and I visited Summerset twice. Once for an event (Jimmy's Buffett) and another time for Sunday Wine and Music. We meet new people each time, and have had a great time dancing, enjoying wine and meeting new people. We have met the owners and they could not be nicer. This place is just wonderful !! We have yet... More
