Love this winery & their staff! We get out here as much as possible especially during the summer months but they also have activites all winter long, like Wild Women on Wine ;) We love their live music concerts that go on every Sunday- which we enjoy under an umbrella with a bottle of chilled Vignoles! We especially love the... More

I just had my wedding here at Summerset last weekend and it was even better than I could have imagined! The staff was so helpful and thorough with all of our questions.

We've been there for a wedding, and were really satisfied! The atmosphere was great, the owners were very friendly, helpful, and passionate. They told us a lot about their wine and his story. Is a very nice place to marry someone, in the middle of the wine yard. The Inn was confortable and charming, the whole family stayed there, and... More

My fiancé and I booked the Inn at Summerset Winery for our wedding in 2014. We decided on this venue because we are regular attenders for their weekly/ Sunday wine event.We booked the Inn so our children from out of state and my parents could stay right on the grounds, and we could have our ceremony right there. While we... More

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

Hello Ty6464, We are so sorry about the experience you had with our dog! Because the winery is located on private property the dog is outdoors from time to time, but normally is not a part of events and kept indoors. We apologize again about the incident and do hope that your daughter is ok and that you have been... 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.
