Our winery and vineyards are situated on the bluff between the Iowa and Mississippi Rivers, just 2 miles west of our namesake, Lake Odessa. We currently grow 7 varieties of grapes, both American and French-American hybrids particularly suited for our varied climate. Our attentiveness to the grape from vine to bottle assures the production of fine wines to suit a variety of palates.
We started our vineyard in 2006 with the planting of 1.25 Acres of vines. Frontenac, Brianna, Lacrescent, Lacrosse, and Concord were all in the mix. Our intent was to grow and sell our grapes for a few years, then open our own winery. The onset of age and the inevitable decline in energy level led to the acceleration of our timetable.
In 2008 we added another two grape varieties, Esprit and St. Croix, in a .75 A block. Additionally, we have proceeded with the conversion of our barn into a small winery and tasting room.
You will find a large selection of wine to please any palette. We offer over 20 varieties of wine ranging from sweets to dry. All of the grapes used to make our wines are locally grow. With 99% of the grapes grown on our property.
