Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 3 starsSep 17, 2013

Favorite Wine: Vignoles

This is a sweet-wine-lover's paradise! Staff was very friendly and personable. Grounds were a little messy, but they're in the middle of wine-making season, so it is to be expected! The Vignoles was very different, and unexpected. Had a nice vanilla finish to it.

Favorite Wine: Guinever's Lace and Nightie Night

This is a fun winery. The owners were very friendly. Love most of their wines. I had been there before and had to return to get more Guinevere's Lace.

Favorite Wine: Jester's Quandary

This winery was perhaps the most unique of our day (Mother's Day 2011) on the Western Iowa Wine Trail. From the labels on the wines, their names, the exterior of the tasting room to the mock middle ages torture devices in the yard, the Renaissance Fair theme was very prevalent. I can imagine events at King's Crossing are very fun and lively. The wines were okay overall. They seem to be pursuing a style that isn't exactly my cup of tea. Even so, the wines are good enough and the hospitality and theming are more than enough for a return trip. And moreover, I am sure there are others who really appreciate the style of wine being pursued here. My wife's favorite was the St. Croix Reserve. My favorite was the Jester's Quandary made from the Frontenac grape. My son liked the sweet red, and silly good fun Nighty Knight. Their Vignoles was unlike any other Vignoles I have ever tried. It really had a vanilla-like flavor to it. (ADDENDUM: We drank a bottle of the St. Croix Reserve a couple months later at home on the July 4th weekend. It was really good. Tasted better at home it seems. It had a start that was just a bit astringent or tart but quickly moved to a smooth, slightly fruity finish. After a couple sips, it had a nice velvety, slightly numbing effect on the tongue that I get when drinking my favorite Cabernet Sauvignons and Nortons. Will have to get some more of the St. Croix Reserve. I give it a 4-star rating meaning I would go out of my way to get more of it. Like the Norton, one of my other favorite grapes, the St. Croix turns turns the water blue when rinsing out your glass. Perhaps there is something to blue skinned grapes.)
