La Vida Loca Winery

La Vida Loca Winery The Putz family moved to a home in rural Warren county in 1987, where many berries were found growing on the property. The family would go out and pick them and make homemade jellies. Tony then began making wine as a casual hobby. When neighbor and relative, Ron, tasted the wine, he began picking fruit and taking a real interest in producing wine. As other people discovered the different flavors of wine, it became evident this was a venture worth undertaking. So, from these humble beginnings, La Vida Loca Winery came to life.

We're 4 miles west of Indianola on Highway 92. Turn north on County Highway R-57 to the first gravel road, which is Jesup. Go 1/2 mile west on Jesup and you'll see the tan and red building on the south side of the road.
