iowa wine month

May 2019 is recognized as Iowa Wine Month by the Iowa Wine Growers Association and the official proclamation form is signed by the Governor of Iowa each year during a brief ceremony at the capitol building in Des Moines, Iowa. Industry members are encouraged to attend the proclamation signing in support of the native grape and wine industry here in our state.

Throughout the month of May, we will be celebrating all things Iowa Wine! The goal of Iowa Wine Month is promote the Iowa grape and wine industry, educate consumers about Iowa wines and raise awareness of the grape varietals grown here in Iowa. We encourage the entire industry to participate in any or all of the suggested activities and utilize the materials we are providing, or feel free to create your own Iowa Wine Month celebrations and activities.
