Whispering Oaks Vineyard is located in the beautiful Gasconade watershed of the Ozark Mountains viticultural area of southwest Missouri. The vineyard overlooks a picturesque valley just north of the second highest point in the state. The wines produced from the grapes of this vineyard are uniquely crafted by the Green family. The Green family has owned this land since 1968 and established the vineyard in 1997. The winery and tasting room on Highway 60 opened the spring of 2004. The wine produced showcases the distinctive flavors the rocky Ozarks soil imparts to the grapes. We are located just off of Route 60, about 35 miles east of Springfield, between Seymour, MO and Mansfield, MO.
