We are located north of Kansas City in the peaceful setting of the scenic Missouri River Bluff wine country. We offer friendly hospitality, gourmet foods, and entertaining and enlightening events. We are committed to using environmentally friendly, sustainable practices, both in the vineyard and in producing our wines. Our wines are carefully handcrafted in small batches using traditional methods of winemaking-- fermented, barreled, aged, blended, bottled and hand labeled at our tasting room location or at our vineyard location. Truly local wines, with a genuine "Taste of Place"! Relax, enjoy, expand your horizons!
Have you ever tried a 100% Italian Verdicchio wine? Join us for our International (and domestic) Wine Tasting this coming Sunday and you can. The Verdicchio grape is a white grape grown primarily in the Marche Region of Central Italy. The bottling we will try is a beautiful wine with a fragrant bouquet of peaches and apples, and a fruity and refreshing palate!
