Cheers and HAPPY NEW YEAR from Hermann! It’s almost time to pour the champagne. That familiar refreshing fizz is, of course, a Hermann favorite. In the days after Christmas, while the twinkling lights still reflect a festive time of year, you’ll be thinking forward to toasting in the new decade. It is almost 2020!

More than Champagne

You simply must not forget the chocolate! Hermann is home to a host of niche shops offering sweet confections to pair once you’ve popped the cork. From shimmering white chocolate truffles to the rich dark chocolate orange rind, nothing complements a delicate glass of sparkling wine quite like chocolate. 

Amply provide for your year-end party with some self-indulgence along the way. Pick up those specialty meats, cheeses and crackers for your charcuterie board in Hermann. You could even spoil yourself a little with a wine tasting to assure that you have picked the very best bottles to bring home.

The Missouri Rhineland is a mecca for skillful fermentation. Your options for celebratory sips are endless! For an authentic taste of German Riesling with appetizers, or a robust and hearty Cynthiana with your feet up by the fire after dinner—Hermann wines are divine! Libations from this lovely river town run the gamut of taste and variety, too. From creative fruit blends to fine liquors, even unique spritzers and traditional mead, Hermann truly can accommodate the connoisseur or the green-taster. Come to Hermann for the perfect bottle to pour, or a case to share, this New Year’s Eve.

As you explore the tastes of Hermann, are you left desiring a more in-depth glimpse at what is offered in Missouri Wine Country? The Hermann Wine Trail meanders for 20 scenic miles along the Missouri River. Perhaps consider making a reservation for yourself, or purchasing a tour as a New Year’s gift, to the Hermann Wine Trail. Don’t miss out on the exclusive wine trail events, including Chocolate, Farmers’ Table, Wild Bacon, Berries & BBQ, Holiday Fare, and Say Cheese themed weekends.

Wait—You almost Forgot the Champagne!

For the frequent visitors of Hermann, you are already aware of beautifully handcrafted, perfectly aged Norton or a tastebud-tingling, sweet Gewurztraminer. But have you given Hermann’s sparkling concoctions a try? Create an instant air of luxury with a crisp champagne toast at midnight from the Hermann “authorities on sparkling wine.” Champagne-making is a trade best saved for the expert winemaker. You are sure to find that a few area wineries truly excel at this talent.
