Loess Hills Vineyard and Winery (written May 22, 2012)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
Loess Hills Winery was a short 20 minute drive from my place. We stopped for a quick lunch and then drove ½ a mile down the road to the winery (it’s actually just a tasting room now). We chose to sit inside, and our first bottle was Luscious Lushes…a semi-sweet blush. All the Goober Girls found this one to be tasty, and the label is a real hoot! We also tried Vignoles (this one was everyone’s favorite!) and Catawba. The woman serving wine when we got there was friendly and informative. We had the pleasure of meeting Larry who kept us laughing and made our first trip to an Iowa winery a pleasant experience!

Glacial Till Vineyard (written May 22, 2012)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 1 stars Ambiance: 1 stars
My fellow Goobers and I set out on a sunny Sunday, intent on spending an afternoon savoring wine, laughter, and conversation with good friends. After a quick lunch we went in search of Glacial Till in Palmyra. I’ll spare you the agonizing details (four thirsty women in a car driving in circles in search of an elusive winery….you do the math!). After more than an hour (yes…an HOUR!) we finally found the entrance to Glacial Till…drove up to the building, drove around the building, drove back to the road with a “what the heck???” mentality. There was no entrance to a winery. There were no cars. The only sign of life other than some lovely grape vines was a man on a tractor (who didn’t seem to notice us). I’d love to tell you how good the wine is at Glacial Till (because I have it on good authority that it IS quite good) I can’t say because we had to regroup and go in search of a different winery.

James Arthur Vineyards (written Dec 19, 2011)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
The WineGoobers chose James Arthur for a December gathering. We arrived shortly after they opened and settled in with a bottle of Heartland White. It was fruity, and sweet but not TOO sweet. We liked it so much that we had another bottle later on! We also tried Edelweiss, San Realto (not so great..a bit like a bubbly T.J. Swan!). We tried the Sparkling Edelweiss, which was also good, but not as good as the regular Edelweiss. The employees were friendly, the atmosphere was delightful, and we all agreed this was a great afternoon out!

Soaring Wings Vineyard (written Nov 02, 2011)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
I've visited Soaring Wings several times with friends. It's a great way to spend an evening, sitting on the hill listening to the band with a good bottle of wine and good friends. You can bring your own snacks and watch the sun go down. I highly recommend it!
