Even though the wine is average at best, they have live music outdoors in the summer. It's a great place to meet people when single.

Such a great atmosphere here..In the summer you can go from 3-6:00 and listen to music and drink wine..Take your own munchies and have a wonderful afternoon..It continues in the winter from 2-5:00 but of course it's inside. Also, they have wedding events and things going on all the time..check out their webpage..

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!
