Nestled in the scenic and historical Loess Hills of Western Iowa, our multi-year venture to nurture, grow and harvest some of the finest grapes ever has truly become "fruitful!"
Loess Hills Vineyard and Winery is a family owned business committed to providing high quality wines and outstanding customer service. Following the Midwestern traditions of hard work and strong values, Loess Hills Vineyard and Winery emphasizes hands-on processing, resulting in exceptional products for our customers.
We will provide you the unique experience of sampling some of the Midwest's finest wines while enjoying a breathtaking view of the scenic Loess Hills of Western Iowa - the very same hills from which many of our grapes are grown.

The Shooting Star is a blend of four white grapes, primarily the Brianna and Seyval Blanc grapes. The Seyval Blanc gives this wine its body and structure, and the Brianna contributes the tropical aroma. When we decided to go with this name, we wanted the label to match its whimsy. Our friend Steve Gray helped us by designing the first of several fanciful labels. Stop in and see if it helps make your wishes come true!
