Picture yourself as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. You open the door of your room at our beautiful Inn at Hermannhof and find yourself at the start of the Wild Card Wine Trail. No ruby red slippers needed to partake in this delightful journey through the Missouri wine country, which is guaranteed to be a treat to your senses. The most discerning of taste buds will want to thank the mighty wizard himself as you are treated to an exceptional pairing of Gulf Shores Bacon Seafood Bisque complemented and enhanced by the Star Lane Sauvignon Blanc, at the Dierberg Star Lane Tasting Room. Just saying it makes your mouth water in anticipation. Reality and fantasy will mesh as you begin to wonder if this meal is too good to be true, but alas…..it is.
Continuing your journey of culinary and beverage enlightenment with a mere hop, skip and a jump, you will find yourself at the Hermannhof Winery. Glinda the Good Witch of the North will appear as the White Lady Wine thoughtfully paired with a traditional Rotkohl mit Speck or in the land of the Munchkins, German Red Cabbage with Bacon. Surely you will feel as though you have reached the Emerald City in this small rural town of Hermann where wine is celebrated as much as the journey.
Mark your calendar now for May 4th and 5th as the Wild Card Wine Trail will set you forth on a journey to seven of our area’s finest wineries. Tickets are $30 per person and must be purchased in advance by calling the Hermann Welcome Center at 800-932-8687.
In the movie Dorothy states, “Everything has to come to an end, sometime.” Luckily we are in Hermann, the land of enchantment, so you are able to look forward to other Wine Trail events such as the Berries and BBQ in July, Holiday Fare in November and Say Cheese in December.
Get ready for a sensory overload as you travel the Wild Card Wine Trail in Hermann.
