A Long Term Commitment

The fundamental things apply

As time goes by.

Herman Hupfeld (1894-1951)

Dearest Customer,

This summer, we’ve been together for 30 years.  The time has really flown by, hasn’t it?  When we first met, there was some uncertainty, even doubt, but there was also a lot of passion.  Three decades later, despite some ups and downs, the feeling is still there—at least for us.

But we know it would be foolish to take you for granted.  After all, you’re hot (and not just because it’s August) and we know there are plenty of pretty players out there that will try anything to woo you.  Now the bad may want you, but we want you bad.  Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to offer you a

RENEWAL OF VOWS

We will always be true to you and to the things that brought us together:  Missouri-grown wines ALWAYS fermented, cellared, and bottled right here in Dutzow.  Grape-to-glass—isn’t that the way it should be?

We will never cheat on you.  In recent years, it’s become more and more common to find two “wineries” in bed with each other.  It’s all undercover—and underhanded:  one makes the wine; the other has its labels slapped on the bottles and pretends to be the producer.  Believe it or not, such shocking behavior is not illegal (in Missouri, anyway).  But let’s call it what it really is:  a desperate, tawdry affair that should be a scandal.  We would never do that to you.

We will always try to keep things fresh and fun.  Free live entertainment every weekend.  Happy Hour on Friday afternoons.  Monthly specials.  Friendly and good-looking staff.  Delicious brats and other light fare from the grill (Saturdays and Sundays).  Even craft beer from local breweries.  And if that doesn’t keep the juices flowing, just remember that we’re always up for a little naughtiness whenever you’re in the mood—such as fooling around with exotic grapes (like our Rayon d’Or) or doing something totally uninhibited like allowing Vignoles to go through malolactic fermentation.

THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH

Total Solar Eclipse at Blumenhof Winery

Partial Eclipse: 11:48 AM – 2:43 PM (CDT)

Total Eclipse: 1:15 PM – 1:18 PM (CDT) 

Length of Totality: 2 minutes, 21 seconds
