Dean and Nancy Rogers are not your typical vineyard owners—and John 15 Vineyard in Scranton is not your typical Iowa Vineyard. It is one of the only, if not the only, commercial vineyards in Iowa that does not produce wine or sell grapes to wineries.

Frozen grapes are available year-round and fresh grapes in season (usually September). Read more »
