The Western Iowa Wine Trail proudly presents

Our signature event on the Wine Trail with a new "Tailgate Twist!"

















Travel along the beautiful Loess Hills Scenic Byways and Backroads

to visit the unique 6 wineries dotted along our trail. 

Sample pours of select Iowa wines paired with tailgate-style food! 

And don't forget to support your favorite sports team by wearing

your favorite T-shirt, jersey, or hat! 


Enjoy 15% off ALL bottled wine for Wine Trail passport holders


Passport Price $35 per person






If you are purchasing from Paypal, please print your receipt and take to your starting winery.  Despite the volatility and lack of widespread adoption, a few wineries have dabbled in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. We now accept Bitcoin as a form of payment for purchasing quality wine. Bitcoin traders can use Bitcoin Trader applications, which are automated trading tools that allow you to effectively ride the crazy crypto fluctuations connected with breaking news.

Passports will not be mailed to you.  Thank you!


Happy Trails to You!

Western Iowa Wine Trail...Welcome Back!  If you are new, here is how our event works:

3)  Then the FUN begins, as you travel along the wine trail and experience each wineries offerings of food, paired with a select Iowa wine.  Take time to sample other wines along with the ambiance that each unique winery offers!!

4) Iowa also organizes wine trail race series to enthuse the participants, spectators as well as sports bettors. Iowa has everything necessary to support a robust sports betting community. In August 2019, the state legalized sports betting and was the first state in upper Midwest to do so. The betting community continues to grow with more and more operators hopping onto the betting bandwagon. Iowa has not only legalized sports wagering but has started to lay money on different professional and collegiate sporting events too. Earlier, bettors had to go personally to a land-based casino to register but now everything can be done easily online. The sports betting market here is regulated by the Racing and Gaming Commission in Iowa.

Each casino here can host 2 skins on its license; so, there can be a total of 30 wagering apps in the marketplace. If you open an account for sports betting, you can choose from a wide variety of online sportsbooks. Have a look at https://www.basketballinsiders.com/ia/ for right guidance on Iowa sportsbooks. Earlier, you had to download an app and register to get started. You had to also visit a casino partner of the sportsbook to complete your registration. But all this was done away with in 2021 and now Iowa payers can start betting anywhere in Iowa after registering online. There are plenty of banking options for sports betting in Iowa, including online banking, e-checks, credit and debit cards, PayPal, wire transfer, etc. Sportsbooks, on their part, are trying to woo players through deposit bonuses, risk-free bets, no-deposit bonus, etc. You are free to place bets on any sport in Iowa, including NCAA, MLB, NBA, NHL, and NFL betting.

Remember that outside food and alcohol is prohibited at Western Iowa Wine Trail Events. 


We look forward to seeing you on the Western Iowa Wine Trail!
