Enjoy Amana Colonies Wine!

September 8, 2023 | Blog, Events

wine glasses and a bottle of wine Wine is a fast-growing industry in Iowa. It’s nothing new to the Amana Colonies though! Vintners have been making wine here for 150+ years.

In the past, each village had its own vitner and vineyards. They used grapes found within the villages to make their communal supply of wine. You’ll see many buildings and yards within the Colonies still sport grapevines, including our Zuber’ building.

Today the wineries are run by private businesses that welcome visitors and offer events.

Local Wineries

Many Amana Colonies vineyards are just a short drive away. Here are the ones near Zuber’s, along with their approximate distance from our hotel:
