Iowa Quality Wine Consortium

The Iowa Quality Wine Consortium is a partnership between the IWGA and ISU’s Midwest Grape and Wine Industry Institute.  It was established to help enhance the reputation of Iowa wine and ensure the quality of Iowa wine overall.  Members of the IWGA can submit their wines for evaluation, and should it pass a sensory analysis test from a panel of chosen evaluators, they will receive a mark of excellence which can be affixed to the wine bottle.  Iowa Decanted visited ISU on the day of an evaluation to get a few behind-the-scenes shots and speak with those involved.
