Things to Do

Hermannhof Vineyards & Winery

See Photo Location
Our winery was built in 1852 and originally housed a brewery.
Our winemaker, Paul LeRoy, has been crafting award winning wines for over 40 years.
We tend our grapes at Little Mountain Vineyard, one of the best vineyard sites in the entire state of Missouri.
Visitors may tour our on-site cellars.

Hermannhof’s magnificent stone cellars and charming brick superstructure are among the 100 early Hermann buildings placed in the National Register of Historic places by the Federal government. Construction of a brewery/winery commenced in 1848 and was completed in 1852 in the French section of Hermann. 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 Hermannhof. 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.

A visit to Hermannhof Winery is like a step into small-town German traditions. In addition to fine wine, Hermannhof is also proud to offer fine local sausage, cheese and made-to-order sandwiches.

Tour the stone wine cellars and building (both are on the National Register of Historic Places.) Our winery is open daily. We are located on Highway 100 at the eastern edge of Hermann, near the Missouri River, with easy access to Amtrak and antique shops.

Hermannhof remains a small winery dedicated to quality rather than quantity. The  quality is apparent as America’s only two-time winner of the Brown Forman Trophy. Our wines have also won medals and honors.
