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 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!
Hello and Happy New Year!
Although it's cold outside now, we're looking forward to the warmer months ahead and beautiful grapes hanging on the vines. We have started cleaning up in the vineyards and orchard, removing dead wood and debris, and counting gaps in the vineyard so we can order replacement vines to be planted in the spring. Soon we will begin the dormant pruning of the grape vines and the Asian pear trees in the orchard.
We're also looking forward to new experiences and adventures at the Tasting Room and at our Tobacco Barn/Vineyard location -- new tastes, new foods, new experiences, new adventures, new musicians and old favorites! See our Events page for a description of events coming up soon at Riverwood Winery. Join us for tastings, shopping, eating and relaxing. We have plenty of seating in the cozy auditorium, and weather permitting we'll have a fire in the fire pit out by the arbor. We hope to see you soon! Thanks!

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.
