Tastings

Special Tastings

Tastings are complimentary at the tasting room bar during our regular hours for groups of eight people or less. If you’re looking for something a little extra special or have a group of more than eight people, we also offer VIP Tasting & Tours as well as Pairing events. Group size can be from two to 100 people. Reservations are required and may be scheduled anytime during our tasting room hours (depending on availability) with the latest tastings at 4pm Monday-Saturday (1pm on Thursdays through the summer) and 3:30pm on Sundays. Please call the winery at 515.282.9463 to schedule yours!

VIP Tasting and Tour — This 90-minute sit-down educational entertainment begins with wine education covering the steps on how to do a proper wine tasting, history of Jasper Winery and information about the Iowa wine industry. We follow that with tastes of our wines and then a tour of our winery to learn how we make wine. Cost is $15/person. Reservations are required.

Wine & Chocolate Pairing — The wine and chocolate pairings begin with education on tasting wine as well as how to taste chocolate. The tasting includes 4 chocolates from Chocolaterie Stam paired with 4 Jasper Winery wines. This activity is done at your own pace but we recommend scheduling 1 hour for a relaxing tasting. Although this is generally done with smaller groups, the wine and chocolate pairing can include groups of up to 40 people. Cost is $15/person. Reservations are required.

Wine & Cheese Pairing — The wine and cheese pairings begin with education on tasting wine as well as how to taste cheese. The tasting includes 4 Iowa cheeses paired with 4 Jasper Winery wines. This activity is done at your own pace but we recommend scheduling 1 hour for a relaxing tasting. Cost is $15/person. Reservations are required.

Bachelorette Special — Celebrate your special day with our Bachelorette Special! When you make the reservation, we will ask if you’d prefer a mix of dry wines, sweet wines or a combination so that when you arrive you may be seated and we’ll take care of the rest! Our staff will provide a quick presentation of the wines along with some snacks to nosh on so you can socialize and enjoy your time at the winery. The Special includes your own table, 5 bottles of wine, 2 cheese plates and chocolates to share for $100. We recommend the Special for groups of about 8 people. If your group is larger, we can just double or triple the Special. If there is any wine left in the bottles, we can package them up for you to take. The cost may be split between the group or paid in full by the organizer. This is also a great package for birthdays and other celebrations. Reservations are required.

Large Groups
