The only winery located in historic downtown near museums, shops, restaurants, and is one block away from Amtrak station. Hermannhof’s ten magnificent stone cellars and charming brick superstructure are among the 100 early Hermann buildings placed on the National Register of Historic places by the Federal government. Today, all the cellars are still utilized in wine production of its own estate wines. Here the wine continues to improve with age until it is dispatched to bring joy and sunshine to connoisseurs.
The soil and climate of the Hermannhof vineyards distinguish them as one of those unique pieces of the earth’s surface capable of producing fine wines. This site has one of the highest, if not the highest, elevations and vertical drops along the Missouri River. Hermannhof’s upper vineyard is located on the high bluffs at the confluence of the Gasconade and Missouri Rivers. The vines are protected from night frosts due to the two rivers, the mist from the river keeping frost away from the grapes. The morning mists rising from the rivers supply warmth and humidity which is often important. Due to the elevated area of the bluffs and the rivers, this vineyard can produce temperature variances of as much as 25 degrees F. from the surrounding plains. This upper vineyard has deep soils providing root penetration deep within the earth, producing wines which age better than wine made from vines grown in the valleys or in light soil. The incline of these high slopes enable the grapes to utilize the full power of the sun, producing wines of full fruit and maturity which are a delight to viticulturist and connoisseur alike.
