Winery & Vineyards

About Us

Hermannhof Winery provides a glimpse into small town German traditions of days gone by. Construction of Hermannhof’s ten magnificent arched stone cellars and charming brick superstructure, both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places, was completed in 1852. Hermannhof’s wine making was initially a small part of this very successful brewery. By 1904, the Hermann area produced 3 million gallons of wine, most of which were produced by small wine growers, many of whom utilized the facilities of your stay at our Hotel in Hermann MO overlooking the Hermann historic district and the Missouri River.

Prohibition began a forced long sleep for Hermann with the vineyards being uprooted and the equipment destroyed or sold to Europeans. In 1974, the Hermannhof Cellars were purchased by the Dierberg family and renewal began. Today, all the cellars are utilized in premium wine production of 15,000 cases. These historic cellars contain casks made from white oak from the forests of France and Missouri. Here the wine continues to improve with age until it is dispatched to bring joy and sunshine to connoisseurs. Other cellars are employed in the making of sparkling wine in the original “méthode champenoise”.
