Tom Kalb started working in the wine business at age 14, at a small winery in his home town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. He scrubbed tanks and stocked shelves. Laura Neese had a family farm in the middle of Missouri Wine Country. A beautiful valley with a home that is welcoming and historic. It was a natural fit to create a boutique Missouri winery that offered a haven of upscale sophistication with down home comfort. So, old farm buildings were given new life as a stylish gallery and tasting room, a quaint outside pavilion with awesome acoustics for live music, and a top quality wine production area. Friends helped and eventually became employees. Those who also love to tilt at windmills, even if just for an afternoon, found us and became a community of wonderful fans, friends, wine drinkers, music lovers. Please come join our eclectic community soon - once you visit, you're part of our family.
Oh, and one other thing - we make fantastic wine.
