  Barbera Drop Dead Red
Grapes for this wine have their heritage in the Piedmont Hills of Northern Italy. While ours were grown in the United States, the comparisons with Sangiovese and Nebbiolo are unmistakable. Here is a wine you can sink your teeth into. Rich, deep, and pleasing this is a satisfying wine that goes down easy and lingers long. Oh, the name? Rich, our Tasting Room Manager, sampled this wine when it was aging in the barrel. He exclaimed, “Boy, that is Drop Dead Good.” The rest is history.
  Edelweiss
Edelweiss is an Austrian-style hybrid similar to Gruner Veltliner, Austria’s most planted grape. It’s a smooth summer drink with overtones of peach and pear. It goes great with salad, fruits, and light summertime meals. Developed by the University of Minnesota for cold climates, this grape is cold-hearty to minus 30-degrees but grows well in Missouri where our winters are not so harsh.
  Norton Biker Bar Red
Missouri’s “Big Gun” is rich and hearty. Nortons burst with aroma and a nose that promises a full, hearty taste. Dry, but not bitter. Norton thrives in our hot, humid Midwest summers. You can taste the wet earth on an August morning in its deep red depths. Aged in Missouri oak barrels to bring out the subtle layers of leather, cherry, and plum. Tannins are low, and acidity is balanced for a bold mouth feel with a clean finish. Our Norton is p-e-r-f-e-c-t with your favorite steak or barbecue.

Norton Wine Review: New facility and vineyards smack dab in the middle of a sharp curve in a small town (don't blink, or you will miss Defiance, MO entirely). We did get to try this very, very young wine from vines still acclimating to the surrounding soils at the 2008 Norton Wine festival in St. Louis. Too young to make any serious comments on this wine at this time. Farmhouse is not set up yet for daily tours or tastings. Give them a few years and cross your fingers for another fine winery near this town. Meanwhile, search out Chandler Hill and Montelle Winery which are very close by.
