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. We use no pesticides or artificial fertilizers in the vineyard. Our wines are carefully handcrafted in small batches -- 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!
Thanksgiving is already behind us and the holiday season is in full swing! Now the excitement builds as we count down the days to Christmas and the New Year! A time for great food and drink, family and friends around the fire, and holiday celebrations.
We have some great holiday events scheduled this month. Weather permitting we'll have a roaring fire in the fire pit too! A great place to relax with a mug of hot spiced wine! We hope you can join us! Thanks!

A True "Taste of Place" - Come taste for yourself!
Our wines are fermented, barreled, aged, blended and bottled either at our tasting room location or at our vineyard location. Truly local wines, with a genuine "Taste of Place'! We have something for all palates -- a crisp dry white Chardonel; a semi-sweet white, a medium-bodied dry oak-aged red Chambourcin; a robust, full-bodied red Cynthiana/Norton with a hint of sweetness; and three rich and luscious port-style wines (a white, a red, and a chocolate cherry). We use oak barrels made in Missouri for our barrel aged wines -- Missouri wine aged in Missouri oak! Please come out to try our local, handcrafted wines.
