Harvest was challenging this year. Normally Brianna, Marquette, and LaCrescent grapes mature about a week apart with Noiret last. This year Mother Nature decided to ripen five acres of grapes all at the same time making for quite a challenge. Dave Henderson and Connie picked most of the grapes with the help of a few volunteers. The LaCrescent and Brianna yielded about the same as last year while the Marquette yielded twice as much as 2014. We continue to lose Noiret vines because they just do not like our cold Iowa winters. These are being replaced with Petite Pearl vines which absolutely thrived this summer and seem to love the winters.

New Wine...New Brand
Wooden Wheel Vineyards is very pleased to announce that we have a new brand here at the winery. Steel Horse Wines was created from a mixture of a passion for winemaking and a love of motorcycles. Steel Horse Wines will give you a little more of an edge while still embracing the flavors of Iowa's grapes. Visit Our Wines page to see more about Steel Horse Wine.
