Hermann’s Wineries & Tasting Rooms

The wineries in Hermann take advantage of the area’s unique microclimate along the Missouri River Valley, which provides excellent conditions for growing grapes. Many wineries have vineyards, bottling operations, and underground cellars — some of which offer tours in addition to traditional wine tastings and a festive atmosphere.

Here are some wineries you won’t want to miss:

Established in 1847, Stone Hill Winery is known for its Norton red wines, but produces many different styles and blends. Stone Hill’s picturesque vineyards direct you toward the Winery building, where you can enjoy tastings and peruse the gift shop. The seating area on the hill provides beautiful views and shaded space to enjoy an afternoon. You don’t want to miss the Vintage 1847 Restaurant, which offers German and American favorites to pair with Stone Hill Winery’s many wines. On Saturday, June 29th, at 3:00pm, take a Grapes to Glass Tour and see how wine is made first hand.

Adam Puchta Winery dates back to 1855 and is the oldest continually-owned family winery in the United States. Adam Puchta Winery is known for their German-style whites, reds, and dessert wines. Adam Puchta Winery showcases rolling hills of vineyards, their tasting room and gift shop, and the 1855 Cellar Bistro. Visitors can participate in Elevated Tasting Experiences with guided wine and food pairings.

Hermannhof Winery uses traditional German winemaking techniques. It produces wines from Norton, Vignoles, and Vidal grape varietals, among others. For lunch, order a sandwich at the Hermannhof Winery Deli and check out the large courtyard in back with beautiful vineyard backdrop. Enjoy music on many summer weekends.

G. Husmann Wine Company celebrates George Husmann, a pioneering 19th-century figure considered the father of the Missouri grape and wine industry. The winery blends grapes from its Missouri vineyards with those from sister vineyards in California and offers visitors a variety of red, white, and specialty wines.

The Dierberg – Star Lane – Three Saints Tasting Room

The Dierberg – Star Lane – Three Saints Tasting Room is your location for Old World wines. A variety of California wines from Dierberg Estate Vineyards and Star Lane Vineyards, as well as Three Saints wines from the Dierberg family’s vineyards in Santa Barbara County, are available for tasting and purchase.

Reserve Cellars is known for its reserve-style wines, which undergo extended aging in French and American oak barrels. Some of Reserve Cellars’ most popular wines include their Estate Norton, a bold dry red, and their Reserve Chardonel, an oak-aged white wine.

Sohns’ Winery is Hermann’s newest winery. Sohns’ Winery offers a shaded courtyard space with tastings and live music every Saturday. It is known for its dry red wines made from Norton and Chambourcin grapes and semi-dry whites like Vignoles and Traminette. Sohns’ Winery will open a new tasting room and cellar area in 2025.
