Giving Thanks

At this time of year, we take pause and think of all the wonderful things we are thankful for.  The list is long here at Fireside and includes visits from old (and new) friends, stunning sunsets, a bountiful grape harvest and incredible musical events.  

This year we are also thankful for a gracious grant we were awarded by the Iowa Tourism Office.  The grant program was open to all tourism-related businesses in the state of Iowa.  We applied for grant assistance to help with costs associated with hosting the many live, musical entertainment acts we have at the winery during the year. 203 applications were submitted and Fireside Winery was one of 69 organizations to share in the grant awards.  

Many thanks to the Iowa Tourism Office and Iowa Economic Development Authority for awarding us with this grant and for helping us spread the joy of wine and live music to our Iowa and visiting guests.
