Annelise Winery is now constructed and open! Come visit! We are a local, family-owned winery, vineyard, and event center located in central Iowa, just south of Des Moines and east of Indianola. We sell various types of wine, from sweet to dry, red to white, and we host all sorts of events. Our wines are quality tested on-site and at Iowa State. We are affiliated with Netter Getter, a bird-net machinery company in Jefferson owned by Paul Klodd.
All public portions of the winery are handicap accessible. Ample parking locations are available.
Our family has a long tradition of working with grapes and wine. In 1997, we planted our first grapes at our house west of town with the thought of selling them at the Indianola Farmers Market. First there was one field, then two, then three, then four. We now have 6,600 mature vines at our home west of Indianola and 1,000 vines on the winery site itself. Much time was spent planting, putting on grow-tubes, taking off grow-tubes, and trimming.
Soon, David got into making small batches of wine in the basement for personal use. We later found another market for the grapes, which was selling them to the Iowa Wine Industry.
Before opening this winery, David had 7 years commercial winemaking experience and received numerous Gold and Double Gold awards for wine he created. He has also worked on contract as a vineyard and winery consultant for the Midwest Grape and Wine Industry Institute. We now are creating wine at our own facility. We hope you enjoy it.
