Missouri Wineries: Robller Vineyard

Our Missouri wine country can boast a variety of Missouri wineries and one of them being the Robller Vineyard. Located in New Haven, Missouri it is only 15 miles east of Hermann.

Bob and Lois Mueller established the winery in 1988 and by 1990 they opened to the public. It's a family business that started in the backyard of their home in Glendale, Mo. Eventually Bob retired from his job and went full time following his making. They found the perfect location in New Haven, built the winery, set up the equipment and prepared for their first crush.They now produce over 5,000 gallons of wine annually from their 15 acre vineyard.

In 1993 Robller Vineyard received Best of Show and the Governor's Cup Award for their 1991 Norton Reserve. All of their wines are sold directly from the winery and a few select locations.

Bob and Lois welcomes your whole family for a days visit, picnic basket and all. Their sales room not only has wine samples but snacks to.

The next big event is the Chocolate Wine Trail on February 19-20, 2012 where wines are paired with chocolate. Our Hermann Missouri bed and breakfast still has some openings for that weekend. Make this your getaway for the month!

Missouri Wineries:Phoenix Winery

It's time to explore the Phoenix Winery one of the Missouri wineries to visit while staying at our Hermann, MO bed and breakfast.

Meet Guenther Heeb, owner of the Phoenix Winery  and chef extraordinaire. Guenther was born and raised in Germany at a 200 year old winery near the Rhine River.

He and his American born wife moved from Germany to the United States 35 years ago and worked as an engineer until the year 2000 when they decided to start a vineyard. Growing the grapes was as far as he intended to go but now he makes wonderful wines on 10 acres.

Phoenix Winery is a small, boutique winery where he tries to maintain the German style of winemaking. He sells all the wine at the winery, nothing wholesale. If he sells out that's it until the next harvest.

Guenther also operates the Edelweiss Dining Club, a private membership only eating club, where he is the chef. This is where he has a great time pairing his wines with his food.

Phoenix Winery is located at 1840 Hwy. 50, about 21 miles south of Hermann. It is open year round from 9 to dusk Monday through Saturday. Hours begin at 11 on Sunday. To contact the winery, call 573-437-6278.

Put this winery on your "to do" list while visiting our Missouri bed and breakfast.
