Empty Nest Winery opened its doors in 2011 with 8 different wines, mainly berry and fruit wines. We are located in rural northeast Iowa on our century family farm. Family-owned & operated, we produce handcrafted wines made in small batches from mainly locally grown handpicked berries. We ferment
whole real fruit not just the juice & real sugar; this gives our unfiltered wine more flavor, color, and body for the best tasting ‘TRUE TO THE FRUIT’ wine.
We now offer over 50 varieties of wines, ports, ciders & sangrias.
Our winery tasting room has a fun & relaxed atmosphere so you can meet friends to taste & enjoy a glass of wine, sangria, pint of craft beer, cider or cans of your favorite beer and always free popcorn to munch on. May through October we have hot food buffet Fridays 5-8pm & Sat. 11-2pm; take what you want & pay at the bar. We have games & cards to play and snacks to purchase so you can relax & have fun here all afternoon...soon to be your fav place to hang out!
