The vibe at 99 Bottles Winery Hills
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
99 Bottles Winery was SUCH an awesome campsite. We unfortunately didn't arrive until close to sunset and left early in the morning, so we didn't get to explore the grounds. The campsite was well kept, the restrooms were clean, and the winery itself was absolutely beautiful. My only regret is that we didn't get to explore more. I would absolutely stay here again and would send friends driving through Iowa to this winery.
I can not over-sell this campsite. Staying at 99 Bottles Winery Hills is the highlight of our road trip across the USA so far. The location was beautiful and secluded.
The camping area has several options for both RVs and tents. We chose a space in the gravel parking area. We were close to the very well-kept bathrooms and to the winery tasting room. The view of the stars at night was unmatched with very little light pollution to get in the way.
The hosts were truly wonderful. They showed us around the property, offered us a wine tasting, and allowed us to help work on the farm for the morning with them. We picked grapes while being taught about the various varieties, local life, and other interesting stories. It was such a fun way to spend the morning.
I hope we will get the chance to visit this site again and strongly suggest it to anyone who is in the area. If nothing else, come by and try their delicious, local wine.
