Wine industry began in Missouri in the 1840s when an influx of German immigrants, inspired by the enthusiastic findings of writer Gottfried Duden, relocated there They eventually founded the town of Hermann, and the state’s first commercial winery, Stone Hill. The success of these wines, most notably The Black Pearl, Hermannsberger, and Starkenberger sold in St. Louis and other large cities, and inspired others to follow. The transcontinental railroads gave a further boost to the wine industry, although it also allowed California wines made from Europeam varietals to prosper. Because European varietals didn’t grow well in the Missouri climate, the most successful wines were produced from French-American hybrids and natives such as Norton. But their popularity kept Missouri the second most popular American wine source leading up to the Prohibition.

  • Sugar Creek Vineyards & Winery Norton Cynthiana NV

    Snoothrank:

    This norton comes from a region with many fine vineyards that serve the same. Compared to the nortons from Defiance & Augusta, MO, this can only be described as an overpriced poor botique example. Read More

    I can't wait to get another bottle of this wine! It was smooth and easy drinking. Fruit on the nose, with dark fruit flavor and ended with a little spice but the tannins were not too strong. Really liked this one! Read More

  • Röbller Vineyards Norton Hermann 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Robller Vineyards has a Norton wine that goes perfectly well with either a picnic or formal dinner. Great value. As a college professor who knows wines stated at a blind wine tasting, "I don't know what this is, but this is what wine should taste like." This was his first tasting of any Norton wine, and it was from Robller. Read More
