Had a great time going around to the many, many wineries. Had a ton of wine samples (some cost, most do not). Some places have snacks as well. All are full of friendly staffs, owners and guests. Scenery varies but mostly on the great side. This will wear you out but in a good way.

There are lots of wineries in Hermann and within a short drive of town. The countryside is beautiful, and you can see some of the vineyards as you drive through the area. Midwest wines and grapes are featured, such as Chambourcin, Norton and Vignoles. Tastes were generous, and most were free. There were a few special wines with tasting for a small fee. Our favorites were Bommarito (mostly dry to semi-dry wines and a great port) and Adam Puchta. The best view was at Oak Glenn. We were disappointed that the trolley wasn't running during our stay, but we did have a designated driver.

Why else would you come to Hermann unless you toured the wineries? We had a fantastic time bouncing from place to place. It was only a one night trip so we are looking forward to going back and checking out the spots we didn't have time for. I would certainly recommend using the trolley. It's like having a personal taxi. They'll take you wherever you want to go and pick you up whenever you're ready to move on. Here's what we did.

I'll start with Oak Glenn. They probably have the worst wine of all, but they have the most fantastic view. We left before the party started but they were scheduled to have live music from 6-10pm. Regarding the wine, one diamond in the rough was the white port. The red port was good too, but having a white port is rather unique.

Adam Puchta had some of the best wine that we sampled. Although not as spectacular as Oak Glenn in regards to the view, Adam Puchta is nestled in a peacefully secluded area with tables to sit and hang out. We bought some crackers, meat and cheese and had a couple bottles of wine. Again, the port here blew me away. They also had a sherry which was amazing.

Stone Hill is the biggest winery and had the widest selection of good wine. They too have an area to sit with a bottle of wine and have cheese/crackers (besides the Vintage restaurant). Good view of Hermann from up there.

Last but not least is Hermannhof, which is the closest winery in town. Hermannhof is also hooked up with the Dierberg winery from California, and they have their own separate tasting room. The standout here was the Three Saints Pinot Noir. Very different and very good.

Wir waren betrunken über Wein.

Hermann is a lovely oasis from I-70, the long flat road across the middle of the country. Hermann is just 20 minutes or so off I-70 and such a quaint little place to visit. You can do the Wine Trail, stroll through the vineyards & enjoy the delicious vineyard restaurants. We stayed for a few days at the Alpenhorn Guest house & it was fabulous. A wonderful break form the usual chain hotels along I-70. It made for a very very happy family!

Even if you don't drink wine, make your way about 2 miles out of town and up the narrow, bumpy winding road to the winery. The view from the winery over the Missouri River and surrounding countryside is one of the best in the area.
