On April 1, 2015, we went to a pay to taste arrangement at the tasting room. After much internal discussion and research throughout the wine industry, we began a new tasting policy at the winery. Wine tastings are offered to customers at a price of $5 for 8 wine samples. We also will be offering $1 per taste if guests would prefer fewer than 8 wines. The limit on wine samples will be 8 which we believe allows our guests to try enough of our wines to get a feel for the wine style and taste, while also being responsible with alcoholic beverages. Customers are welcome to split their tastes with another individual too.
We appreciate your support, and your patronage, and hope to see you at the winery soon!
We offer a number of discounts at the winery when purchasing wine, including:
- 4 bottle BBV reuseable bag – 5 percent off purchase
- 6 bottles – 5 percent off purchase
- 12 or more bottles – 10 percent off purchase
- Wine of the month discounts – 5 percent off individual bottles of the wine of the month; 15 percent off full cases of wine of the month.
Hours of Operation
We are open 7 days a week to the public – Monday through Saturday 11 am to 6 pm, and Sunday 1 to 6 pm. These hours continue through December 31.
We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
Chambourcin is the Wine of the Month – November
As the days get shorter and the nights get cooler, it’s the perfect month for a dry red wine to warm you up! We’ve selected the 2011 Chambourcin as our November wine of the month to coincide with the Missouri Wine & Grape Board’s varietal spotlight.
Kris Kringle Release Date – Nov. 14
This year’s Kris Kringle is in the bottle and waiting for release on Saturday Nov. 14. This year’s art was created by our very own Mary Scanlin. It is the same great blend from previous years – Vignoles and Norton semi-sweet wine with hints of cinnamon. Bottles will sell for $12, same as last year. And many of our retail partners will also be selling this seasonal variety too. Look in your favorite store’s Missouri Wine section or plan to visit the winery to get your bottles before they are gone!
