A community known for its passionate preservation of history, Hermann has been the heart of the Missouri’s wine culture since the 19th century. Many of the 1800s-era wineries are still in operation today! In the 200 years since wine making came to the area, Hermann has become home to several renowned wineries with award-winning wines. If you’re visiting the area’s wineries, you’ll find there are many excellent options. For those wanting to get the most out of Hermann’s winery experience, look no further than the Hermann Wine Trail.
Composed of seven of the area’s family-owned wineries, the Wine Trail wineries are open year-round, 7 days a week. Six times a year, the Wine Trail also hosts events that feature food and wine pairings at each stop. Each event features a different paring theme, like chocolate, bacon, cheese, holiday fare, or even barbecue. This summer’s event, Berries & BarBQ Wine Trail, highlights succulent, in-season berries, savory barbecue, and crisp, cool summer wine pairings. Tickets for the July 27-28 event and more information are available on the Hermann Wine Trail website. The event includes wine and food pairings at each of the 7 Wine Trail wineries.
