Creating a Destination Winery in Iowa

Sully, IA is situated in Jasper County amongst a lovely backdrop of timber and farmland.  It rests between Des Moines (39 miles) and Iowa City (78 miles) along the historical Diamond Trail used in 1848 by Gold Rush traffic.  Van Wijk Winery is located at 802 4th Street in Sully, IA. 

It’s a hidden gem for weddings, corporate, and family events.  Our boutique winery specializes in the simplicity and intimacy of small gatherings, and celebrates your event with bold style and elegance.  The Van Wyk Family has taken great pride in designing, building, and decorating our boutique winery for your enjoyment.  Its stoned façade was inspired by 16th Century European Castles, including crenellations and merlons above our B&B Tower. 

The inside of the winery showcases a variety of elegant decorative painting techniques including brilliant bronze metal, brushed pearl for a sophisticated dimensional iridescent faux finish, Venetian plaster for a glamorous look of polished marble and natural stone, and accents of stone and brick. 

The strong color variations in the Acacia wood flooring used in the banquet facility range from a light buttercream to a golden brown, all swirled together with an iridescent sheen that makes this wood floor an absolute dream!  According to the Book of Exodus, acacia wood was used in the construction of the Arc of the Covenant.

A main focal point of our Ballroom is the Theatre Surround Sound/Video and Special Lighting system.  The entertainment technology will delight your guests who appreciate and understand the creative process.  Our speaker placement is essential to experiencing the true impact of movies, music, and games.  Great sound really makes your event profound when displayed with our high definition video projector and screen.  By carefully selecting the arrangement of our lighting fixtures, we brighten any room and give it an inviting glow.

Whether you are creating your own event, or attending a Special Event hosted by Van Wijk Winery.  Our Gathering room features a cozy fireplace and provides pristine seating for optimal enjoyment.
