On Wednesday, the region 1 Rising Star interns visited Calico Skies Winery, located outside of Inwood, Iowa. The couple that owns and operates the winery and vineyard is Will Kimberley and Ashlee Bahnson-Kimberley. Calico Skies does more than just make wine. They have their own vineyard and are also in the business of hosting weddings, receptions, and other special events. They host all of these events in three different indoor rooms that can be rented out and have an outdoor location as well. When we first walked in we were greeted with smiling faces and felt very welcomed.
The Rising Star interns have had a great time so far working throughout their regions. Region 1 had our first farm tour of the summer. We visited Little Swan Lake Winery out in Estherville, Iowa. Little Swan Lake is more than just a winery.
On Wednesday, June 10, The Region 5 ( Lauren and Hannah) and Region 1 ( Cassie, Sara, and Mackenzie) interns traveled to Inwood to take a tour of Calico Skies Winery and Vineyard.
