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!
The recent spring rains are welcome in the vineyards and orchard, and the vines and trees practically glow with the new growth!
The timing of the springtime rains, though, is hard to predict. So far we have had some beautiful, fresh spring days followed by pleasant evening rains. We have live music on Saturday, and the music will go on rain or shine. If it's dry the musician will perform outside on the patio. If it happens to rain he'll perform on the stage in the Tasting Room auditorium. Either way we have plenty of seating in both spaces!
Our new summer hours are now in effect -- on Fridays and Saturdays we will remain open until 7:00 pm. Relax with a bottle of wine before you head into Weston for dinner! We hope to see you soon!

Live Music -- Dan Bliss
Dan joins us again at the winery to entertain with his rich guitar sounds and great voice. The spring weather is unpredictable but Dan will perform rain or shine. If it's dry outside he'll play on the patio. If it rains he'll perform in the comfortable auditorium. Bring your picnic or order a charcuterie plate or bread & cheese plate from our kitchen to enjoy with a bottle of wine. If you're adventurous try a flight of single malt Scotch or single barrel bourbon (we have several new choices in our selection). You can see more about Dan and his music at danbliss.com.
