My wife and I just returned from a trip to Hermann, Missouri last weekend. We were celebrating some family birthdays and such, all while enjoying the wonderful wineries and perfect weather. Hermann, if you were unaware of it, is home to several award-winning wineries, and sits in the hills near the middle portion of the state on the banks of the Missouri River. In addition to the wineries, they have a plethora of German cuisine, including a perfect shop dedicated to German Brats and such. While we were there, we enjoyed the wine tasting, as well as a Civil War re-enactment. I would highly recommend anyone who is traveling to Missouri to try to make a stop in the area. I took the attached picture in the vines just outside of the Stone Hill Winery gift shop. Enjoy!
