January is Norton Month
Join Riverwood and the Missouri wine industry as we recognize January as Norton month!
Riverwood currently has a Nouveau Norton crafted from a small portion of our 2016 harvest. This wine was produced using the "carbonic maceration" process in which whole grape clusters are fermented in a closed container prior to pressing. The resulting wine is fresh and fruity with low tannins and acidity. Nouveau wines are produced and bottled within weeks of the grape harvest and are made to drink immediately.
The remainder of our 2016 harvest is currently aging in Missouri White Oak barrels and should be ready for bottling in four months or so!
New Wine Release this Weekend!
Aged in a stainless steel tank the Riesling is crisp, aromatic and deliciously refreshing! It comes with fresh, fruity flavors and aromas of apples, apricots, peaches, and pears. Well-balanced and pairs wonderfully with spicy foods.
Whiskey Bar Expansion!
New Updates to the Whiskey Bar:
Our whiskey bar has been expanded to twice its size to better accommodate over 150 different whiskies including over fifty Bourbons, seventy Single Malt Scotch whiskies, as well as Canadian, Irish and Japanese whiskies!
Our new whiskey menu will soon have a variety of select flights and cocktails to further your whiskey tasting experience!
While you're at the winery visit our Whiskey Bar for a flight or a single pour of Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Single Barrel or Small Batch Bourbon, or Irish Whiskey! Great fun and a great way to try something intriguing!
Single Malt Scotch Flights
Try a flight of Single Malt Scotch Whisky! We have a wonderful selection of whisky from each of the regions of Scotland with an array of fascinating aromas and flavors, from smoky and peaty, to light and dark, to sweet, nutty, fruity and chocolatey!
Small Batch & Single Barrel Bourbon Flights
We also offer flights of three or six small batch or single barrel bourbons. It's a fun and educational experience as you compare the flavors and aromas of this great American spirit! Single two-ounce pours also available.
