Fort Dodge, Iowa: Soldier Creek Winery

I visited Soldier Creek Winery in Ft. Dodge, Iowa. It was my second time there in the past year and a half…I HAD to go back since I was in the area.

Goodness gracious, this is some of the best wine I have ever tasted. Sorry Napa! I love wine, but I REALLY love Soldier Creek Wine. If you are a wine lover and find yourself in Central Iowa, GO TO SOLDIER CREEK WINERY. I’M NOT KIDDING. Plus, the setting is just beautiful. Instead of corn fields (which are also nice), there are rows and rows of grape vines. And they sometimes have live entertainment and other activities. Check it out if you can.

Fort Dodge, Iowa: Community Orchard

I visited Community Orchard in Ft. Dodge, Iowa.

What a really neat place it is. The setting is gorgeous and quaint all at the same time. There is a playground for kids, apple orchard (of course) with 15 types of apple trees, a small cafe, and lots and lots different types of apples and apple-based products (and non-apple based products) for sale (pies, salsas, muffins, mixes, etc.). Plus, in the shop upstairs, there are really cute items for home decor. They also have a pumpkin patch and a corn maze in the fall!

They are not open certain months of the year, I think mostly winter, so check their website for details if you find yourself heading to Ft. Dodge and want to visit.  http://www.communityorchard.com
