The Putz family moved to a home in rural Warren county in 1987, where many berries were found growing on the property. The family would go out and pick them and make homemade jellies.
Tony then began making wine as a casual hobby. When neighbor and relative, Ron, tasted the wine, he began picking fruit and taking a real interest in producing wine.
As other people discovered the different flavors of wine, it became evident this was a venture worth undertaking. So, from these humble beginnings, La Vida Loca Winery came to life.
In the recent Mid-American Wine Competition held at Des Moines Area Community College La Vida Loca Winery received a silver medal for their wine La Vida Loca Red. The competition was open only to the wines of the Midwest. Over 560 wines were entered by 88 different wineries. Professional wine judges from throughout the United States awarded 41 gold medals, 105 silver medals, and 203 bronze medals. “The quality of the wines from the Midwest was very impressive” commented lead judge Doug Frost of Kansas City. He noted, “It conclusively demonstrated that the Midwest is making top notch wines.”
