Since its establishment in 1847, Stone Hill Winery has undergone significant and inevitable changes. From early success as the nation's second largest winery to the catastrophic times of Prohibition, from its use as a mushroom-growing facility to the resurgence of Missouri's wine industry, Stone Hill Winery has evolved into a world-class winery. Today, perched dramatically on a hill overlooking the beautiful German town of Hermann, Stone Hill Winery & Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Missouri Wine Country. Each year Stone Hill welcomes thousands of visitors who enjoy not only the award-winning wines and juices but also the region's Old-World hospitality and surrounding beauty. Guests are invited to take a guided tour of the winery's cavernous arched underground cellars before settling in for a wine tasting in one of three historic tasting rooms. No visit to Stone Hill is complete, however, without browsing through the winery's spacious wine and gift shop. A beauty to behold, this magnificent showcase displays quality wine-related items and souvenirs from antique furnishings handsomely arranged throughout the 3,000-square-feet structure. Stone Hill's visitors enjoy spectacular scenery from the winery's Conservatory on the inside to the commanding view overlooking the town of Hermann on the outside. For more traditional surroundings, guests may dine in casual comfort at the adjacent Vintage Restaurant, where contemporary world cuisine, including German specialties, is paired with Stone Hill's award-winning wines. Once the winery's original stable and carriage house, this beautifully restored building features a private room for lunch or dinner, and special group menu selections are available. Though well-known for hosting such gala weekend events as Maifest, the Cajun Concert on the Hill, the Big Band Dance, Octoberfest and numerous Hermann Wine Trail activities, Stone Hill Winery is open every day. No matter what time of year, what day of the week or what type of weather, Stone Hill's gracious hospitality awaits all those who enter.
The Traveling Winers on Missouri Wine Trail
For some reason, Stone Hill was not on our list of wineries to visit for the day. I can’t remember why, because it was clearly very easy to find if you are following the Hermann Wine Trail. The reason we decided to add it in to our already overcrowded day was because it stuck out like a sore thumb (in a good way!) in the middle of town AND someone at one of the other wineries suggested we not miss it. Good advice!
Stone Hill is a very cool winery with a bit of everything for everyone! There is shopping, wine tasting, food, tours, vineyards….they just have it all!
According to Bill, our tasting room host, Stone Hill is a 3rd generation winery, is currently family owned and produces about 250,000 gallons per year with 91% being estate grown (most vineyards are apparently located along the river from Hermann to Branson).
We would suggests that you also not miss this winery experience. I hope that one of you visits and also has some lunch or dinner at their restaurant.
