Good wines and great staff
Sep 2021 • Solo
Stopped in for a quick tasting. Tasting is $7 for 5 wines. Wine is fantastic! Prices for bottles is comparable. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Ask to taste their cider and frozen wine slushees. They are fantastic! Adequate parking. Grounds are beautiful. Interior is somewhat industrial but clean
Will return

Peaceful Enjoyable Experience
Jun 2021
My husband and I live locally and went to Soldier Creek on a Sunday afternoon with our son and daughter-in-law who were visiting from Austin, Texas. We were able to sit outside looking out at the vineyard and the corn. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Amanda assisted us with our tasting and talked about the various wines that we had chosen. We asked questions and she answered all with great knowledge. When we checked out, we also checked out the merchandise which was really fun. We will definitely be putting this on list to do again in the future. Thank you, Amanda and Soldier Creek Winery.

Unique setting to meet for a drik
Nov 2018
A unique setting to meet friends and share a drink. Not the most comfortable seating so you won't want to stay to long! The wine is okay, kinda spendy for the label. very limited selection crackers and cheese whiz/spread!
They do have local entertainment . . except you want be able to sit to long because the stools are to high for the tables and the chairs are cheap metal lawn chairs.
Family owned and very nice people.

This is a wonderful family owned and operated winery. Our group arrived late but we were welcomed and given our tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and explained how the various family members have their niche in the business. Wine tasting with more stories made for a delightful time!

Awesome place!
Apr 2019 • Friends
Family-owned and a first class experience! Delicious and award-winning wines grown on the farm by the owners. The free live music every weekend is a real treat, especially in nice weather when the crowd gathers outside under the trees to enjoy the music. This is a great venue for showers, parties of any kind, even corporate gatherings. Two thumbs up for the wine slushie, which is especially delicious in warmer weather. 👍🏻👍🏻 This place is well worth the visit! 🍷🍷🍷

Perfect in every way!
Feb 2019 • Business
Do NOT miss the chance to visit with the wonderful folks here at Soldier Creek Winery!

First, the staff truly are "like a family" even if they are not blood related to the family of winemakers who own this beautiful place. And, that family feeling spills over onto visitors as you are welcomed as one of their own from the moment you walk through the doors. This makes you want to keep coming back as many of the locals do. So very many of them talked with us out-of-towners last night and had rave reviews about what it is like here during the warmer summer months with outdoor seating, too.

The wine is incredible. No way to describe it, you will have to try it for yourself.

The food was brought in by a local pub and was delicious; large portions at low prices.

There is quite a bit to choose from here for shopping as well, not just the t-shirts and jackets you'd find at most wineries...Lots of really neat wine related items we've not seen elsewhere. Local chocolatier items at the register too for those impulse buy items.

Add live music in to this mix and you have a PERFECT way to spend an evening here among friends, new and old!

Enjoyable Sunday Afternoon Visit
Oct 2017 • Couples
Clean, open, out in the country building. Plenty of room to sit and do a tasting of several of their wines. We enjoyed good service and explanation of six of there white and red wines. Not bad for Iowa. We ended up buying a couple of bottles to take home and enjoy later.

Great Winery in rural Iowa
Jun 2017 • Couples
We enjoyed our visit to the Solider Creek Winery - staff was great to work with and most importantly the wine was DELICIOUS. We will now have to make another trip there to purchase some more wine. We loved getting to taste the various wines and hearing about the awards that they had won with the various wines. We also enjoyed a brief tour of the facility. Yes - we will be returning.
