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.
