LOCAL WINERY: Summer Concert Series Starts
After Iowa’s never ending winter the state’s wine industry hoping for the best.
“So as long as we don’t get a really late frost after a warm up, we should be good. This kind of year… just crossing our fingers that we don’t get a late frost, that would really kill off our buds,” says winemaker Mason Groben.
Jasper Winery in Des Moines launches a new season of its summer concert series Thursday night. It’s from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. The classic rock and soul band Boomerang performs Thursday night.
A new band takes the stage each Thursday night through July. Six-hundred to 1,000 people sip on wine and enjoy food off the grill.
Be sure to grab a blanket or chair from home.
This is the 4th year of the concert series in Des Moines.
Jasper Winery only grows a small portion of the grapes and buys grapes to make wine at its downtown winery.
