As a youth, my father pointed out to me a depression along 260th road which was made by the stagecoaches as they traversed through 76 Township during the mid to late 1800's. One intersects with this stagecoach trail one mile south of the Ardon Creek Winery. Go left or angle right and you will experience the curves and undulations of the trail.

Even modern day road engineering has not extinguished this stagecoach route which typically followed American Indian and buffalo trails, along the ridges of hills, and across the prairies. (No one mile square road sections in that area!)

The route was a leg which connected Muscatine, Letts, Columbus City, Washington, and finally Des Moines. Stagecoach lines suffered bandit robberies, Indian attacks, prairie fires, mires in mud and the occasional turnover. - Yes in Iowa!

Jonnycakes were a treat that were sold to stagecoach riders as they passed through town. Enjoy this strawberry flavored grape wine and toast those who came before us settling this wonderfully Prairie.

Brand for Ardon Creek Vineyard & Winery
Ardon Creek Vineyard and Winery was founded on a 158-year-old family farm with a rich Irish Heritage. We proudly carry-on our family traditions of good stewardship of the land and promote a renewal of people working together to produce a quality product.

Ardon Creek is a family owned and managed operation established by Mike Furlong and his son, Chad Furlong, in 2008 to fulfill the promise of community and farm revitalization. Day-to-day vineyard and winery operations are managed by Mike, his wife Diane Furlong and a crew of local community members.

The vineyard is 4.1 acres in size and includes five varieties of winter-hardy grape vines. Our red grapes are Concord, Noiret, Chancellor and our white grapes are Edelweiss and LaCrosse. Our own juice is supplemented by the winter hardy varieties from the Finger Lakes wine region of New York. All of our wines are vinted, cellared and bottled in our own winery.
