Renaissance estate grown Missouri riesling wine by Westphalia Vineyards

Missouri Riesling was considered nearly extinct after virtually all vines were destroyed in 1919 at the onset of Prohibition. Westphalia Vineyards rediscovered a single vine, planted in 1890, at the National Agricultural Experimentation Center at Cornell University. In 2005 we started with 5 cuttings and have propagated this varietal to now over 500 healthy vines.

We call this experiment "Renaissance," the rebirth of a native American grape varietal.

We add no sulfites during the production of our handcrafted wines (note: may contain naturally occurring sulfites), so they are fresh, vigorous, and ready to drink. The Neuner family wishes you cheers and hope you enjoy our wines.
