Take a trip to Stone Hill Winery, and enjoy the fruit of Missouri’s oldest vineyards.
Stone Hill Winery
The winery’s history goes back to the 19th century when Stone Hill grew to be one of the most well-known and successful wineries in America. According to the winery’s website, Stone Hill brought home gold medals for their wine at world fairs in the 1870s and was shipping 1.25 million gallons of wine annually in that period. However, the Prohibition brought production to a halt until the vineyards were purchased by the Held family in 1965. Since then, the property has been restored and Stone Hill Winery has once again risen to prominence. As stated on Stone Hill’s website, the winery is not only the state’s oldest but the winningest, recipient of over 4,000 awards.
Stone Hill Winery owns five different beautiful vineyards, covering a total of nearly 200 acres. Stone Hill’s line of award-winning wines is highlighted by their Norton wines, made using the state grape of the same name. Moscato, Port, Chardonel, and several other delicious varieties are produced, but their Norton wines are Stone Hill’s showstoppers. That’s reason enough alone to make the trip!
The wine at Stone Hill is the main attraction – and rightly so – but Vintage Restaurant is worth your time (and tastebuds). It’s only right that award-winning wine is served with award-winning food, and that’s exactly what you’ll find on the menu at the Vintage Restaurant at Stone Hill. Enjoy their selection of mouthwatering German dishes!
