Wineries, Breweries, and Distilleries

During your stay, be sure to visit some of the famous Hermann, MO wineries and breweries in the area. Grape growing and wine making in Hermann and the surrounding countryside has been ongoing since the arrival of the first German settlers in the early 1800s. Hermann has been in the forefront of the Missouri wine industry since 1837, a year after the town was founded. So it’s no surprise that our guests tell us that visiting Hermann’s award-winning wineries is part of their tradition when staying at Hermann Hill. We think you should try the Norton and Vignoles variety at each of the local wineries to compare different finishes of the same locally grown grapes.
