I recently got to experience the amazing, beautiful, and scenic views of Northeast Iowa during a drive through the hills and bluffs near North Buena Vista, at Promise Land Winery. Walking in and hearing the laughter, seeing smiling faces, and feeling the warmth of the fire crackling with the blue flames reflecting off the award-winning bottles of wines was breathtaking.
Upon entering, we found an over-sized comfy couch to relax in and ordered some deep red wine and homemade pizza. Swirling the wine in our glasses and savoring the aroma by the glowing fire melted our cares away. A freshly baked homemade pizza was set down on the table next to us, firing up our taste buds with a one-of-a-kind experience that can only come from the Promise Land Winery.
After eating our own mouthwatering pizza, we decided to wander out to the courtyard to enjoy the warm country breeze. This was the perfect location to reconnect and chat with family and friends while listening to live local music on Sunday afternoon.
Local musicians played upbeat music that made your feet want to get up and move. Swaying in the chair to the rhythm of the guitar, we bumped into the group sitting next to us (with a sincere pardon me, of course). We invited the friendly folks to join us at our table for wine, stories, jokes and belly laughter. Afterwards, we decided to take a stroll through the vineyard, amazed at the many varieties of grapes ripening to be made into the delicious wine. The calm, quiet, serene sound of nature surrounded us as we walked back to the winery.
We enjoyed everything from the gorgeous scenery, delicious wine, and hot-piping homemade pizza to shopping in the unique boutiques. The friendly faces and atmosphere at Promise Land Winery made time slip away ever so quickly. Soon, it was a hug and see you soon, as we promised to return again soon.
