“dedicated to the art & craft of making wines”
“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. Construction of a brewery/winery commenced in 1848 and was completed in 1852 in the French section of Hermann. Hermannhof's wine making was initially a small part of this very successful brewery. By 1904, the Hermann area produced 3 million gallons of wine, most of which were produced by small wine growers, many of whom utilized the facilities of Hermannhof. Prohibition began a forced long sleep for Hermann with the vineyards being uprooted and the equipment destroyed or sold to Europeans.”
Good semi-sweet wine, but the Norton was my favorite
The Traveling Winers on Missouri Wine Trail
Three treasures await you at Hermannhof Winery! First, Billy, the tasting room host is as friendly and passionate as can be. Make sure to ask him to share with you the history of how hybrid varietals got their names. Very interesting if you don’t already know. Second, the basement is full of ole skeletons…skeletons of wine barrels and bottles from many, many years past. If you don’t look for the basement you might actually miss it, so fair warning! Watch your head as you descend, and also watch for ghosts! And finally, the third treasure is their wine. It’s not half bad! We found a couple that we quite enjoyed.
