Back Roads Wine Trail is a collaborative effort by wineries located on or near Highway 92. Since our origination in 2016, there have been 4 wineries. However, in the autumn of 2021, two of those wineries closed. The two remaining are Nearwood Winery & Vineyards in Knoxville and La Vida Loca in Indianola.
Back Roads Wine Trail got its name from an evening of brainstorming ideas over a glass (or two) of wine at the Nearwood Winery tasting room in Knoxville. Back Roads are off the beaten path, allowing your imagination to run a little wild with the possibility of adventure. Back Roads aren’t in the city, even though they are only about an hour drive from Des Moines, Iowa. Back Roads run along rolling green hills, picturesque pastures where cattle and horses graze, winding streams, vineyards and lightly traveled highways. Get out of the city congestion to travel the Back Roads and enjoy some Iowa wine along the way.
The Heart of Iowa Wine Trail is made up of 8 wineries and 1 meadery spread across much of the central one third of the state from north to south. We are a group working together to promote Iowa's wine industry to both native Iowans and all the visitors we welcome annually to our beautiful state. For more information click HERE.
