Local Fine Wine.....

River Ridge Winery is situated in a century old farm house and nestled in the hills above the Mississippi River. The hand-tended French Hybrid and Vinifera grapes grown on the hills behind the winery produce wines of the highest quality.

Wine production has topped 4,000 gallons. Our goal of producing the best wines our Missouri soils can grow is being obtained with the Vinifera vineyard. Unusual and sometimes considered not possible, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay are thriving in River Ridge’s vineyard.
