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
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.
