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!
