Fireside Winery

Fireside Winery Fireside Winery is the culmination of our life-long dream to pass our farm and our family’s land heritage on to our children. As Iowa farmers whose ancestors tilled the very land on which we live and work today, it has been our hope to offer our children the agricultural legacy that has defined our family for four generations. Our farm has always been a place that has fulfilled our family, where our work bonds us and the harvest sustains us, just as it has for the previous generations that have called this farm “home.”

From Cedar Rapids: Take Hwy 151 south past Westdale Mall and proceed to Homestead with a bend (not actual turn) to the right (west) onto Hwy 6. Continue on Hwy 6 past South Amana turning left (south) onto P Avenue (V77). FIRESIDE Winery is located approximately 2 miles south on the right (west) side of the road across from the First Lutheran Church. From Des Moines, IA: Head east on I-80 towards Iowa City.

Easily recognized by its striking cobalt blue bottle, our Blû is a light, crisp, semi-sweet white wine that starts out smooth and ends with a crisp, refreshing finish. This fun, easy-drinking wine is a blend of Geisenheim and Seyval Blanc, and shows inviting flower and fruit overtones of violet, pear, and peach. Serve slightly chilled on a quiet summer afternoon with light picnic fare, or all by itself.
This Cabernet Sauvignon jumps out of the glass with aromas of blackcurrant, plums, and just a hint of violet. On the palate this juicy wine explodes with flavors of black cherry, ripe plums, and blackcurrant. finishes bold yet smooth, with soft tannins that leaves you asking for more. Beef tenderloin served with an onion horseradish sauce would be a nice compliment to a bottle of CoCo.
Our version of Zinfandel also contains 10% Malbec. Understated aromas of black fruit, with hints of green pepper, and dried herbs greet your nose as you first meet this wine. On the palate the soft tannins melt to expose deep black fruit notes, cherry and blackcurrant. Cordovan is a well balanced wine with great fruit character showing off all that Zinfandel can be. We believe Cordovan is an excellent wine to be enjoyed by itself however, it could also be delicious along side a dish of pasta marinara, or with peppercorn beef medallions.
Bright fruity aromas of blackcurrant and cherry invite you into the glass of Crownfire. These characters carry over onto the palate of this medium bodied Merlot and are greeted by notes of blackberry, plum, and just a hint of oak, with a crisp mineral finish. Crownfire can be paired nicely with pesto pasta or an herb crusted rack of lamb.
Made exclusively from Iowa grown Edelweiss, this off dry Iowa white gives off the intoxicating aroma of butterscotch, with hints of apricot and pear. Edelweiss fills the palate with great aromas, while the well balanced acidity, and hint of spice lead to a long satisfying finish. This wine should be served with lighter chicken, pork and pasta dishes and would also make a great picnic wine.
Firefly, our version of blush wine, is extremely fun and fruity, with distinct aromas of strawberry and raspberry and just a hint of citrus. This easy-drinking wine is smooth from start to finish, making it a great casual wine. While it can be served with lighter foods, it’s best enjoyed with good conversation in the company of great friends.
Our dry red wine, a blend of Chambourcin and Chancellor grapes, is a medium-bodied wine that shows off the deep purple color for which Chancellor is known.

This Concord wine is sure to become a summertime favorite.
