I stumbled on Kiss Me wine years ago and just thought the name of the wine was so clever.  It’s a perfect way to inject a little humor along with a little romance into a relationship by giving a hint to someone that you would like to be kissed.  Just pull out that bottle of wine during dinner….. hand it to them with… the corkscrew – and well….. surely you can see on your own how far you can take this with your hinting…. and….. you can even pull off this level of hinting while there are kids in the room.  lol

I have a true passion in my own life for making a difference and making memories and Summerset Winery shares the same passions so, in hopes of helping someone out there send a signal of sizzle into their own love life we are partnering up for this giveaway just in time for Valentine’s Day.


Located just minutes outside of Des Moines, Iowa in Indianola, Summerset Winery produces award winning Iowa wine from locally grown, central Iowa grapes. While their wines are delicious and their grounds are picturesque, the most pleasing part of Summerset Winery is their staff, as whether you are experienced with the world of wine or a novice and afraid to look foolish, you’ll find that their friendly and knowledgeable staff are ready to help you find an Iowa wine you’ll appreciate and enjoy.  The tasting room is open Tuesday-Sunday all year long and Mondays by appointment. Summerset Winery offers wine tastings and tours, and is the ideal location to host weddings, receptions, corporate events, private parties, and more.  They have a long list of awards, but they are most proud of their customers and ensuring their enjoyment of the Summerset experience.  And the Summerset experience is truly unique.

For those of you who are local or simply want to make a trip to Central Iowa you should know that Summerset hosts their own events throughout the year.  In fact, coming up is an event For Ladies Only.  This event is being held Saturday February 7, 2015 at 7:00 – 10:00 pm and is sure to be a night you won’t soon forget.  This event is guaranteed to be a fun, frolicking evening filled with frivolity and favors.
