Life is Too Short -- The warmth of the fire pit and the golden hues of the setting sun in the company of good friends with a glass of wine remind us of why we began this winery. Five years ago we opened our winery doors for the first time, in large...more

Great wines... Love Firefly & Blu! The wine tasting was fun and easy then we bought a bottle to take outside and enjoy while listening to live music. What a wonderful Sunday afternoon!

Thanks for spending an afternoon with us. Have you tried a BluFly? We often mix the two wines together and they are a customer favorite. Give it a try sometime! We hope to see you again soon.

We always stop here when going to or through the Amana Colonies area. The wines are reasonably priced. It has become one of our destinations in its part of Iowa.
