Cedar Ridge Winery and Distillery is rooted right in the Corn Belt in Swisher, Iowa. Iowans understand the value of a hard day at the job, and that desire to unwind after it. From acres of Iowa grown grapes, to our unending bushels of corn straight from our fertile Midwestern soil, we put only the best into our wines and spirits – nothing else will do. Using nature as our ultimate guide, we age our whiskeys in a non-temperature controlled climate and allow for Mother Nature to guide the way.
If you’re ever in the area, we encourage you to stop by, kick back, and unwind with your favorite bottle of wine. And, if you happen to have a story from your day – we’re always here for you.
Cedar Ridge Vineyards is a family-owned winery, distillery and event space nestled in the beautiful Swisher countryside- a short drive from Cedar Rapids or Iowa City.
