To us at Fernweh Distilling Co., this is a state of mind. For those of us who are compelled to explore and experience, not only the far reaches of our world, but also intellectually the many fascinating elements of science and culture that reward us with enlightenment and prosperity within. Through these experiences, we expand our minds and sophisticate our palates and gain a more profound appreciation for the great mysteries of our existence. To this, we raise our glass and toast to our many journeys. May we never tire in our quest for the finer things in life.
Stone Hill is the oldest winery in the area. We call it the Star on the Hill. They produce over 350,000 gallons of wine per year. This is about 5 to 6 times larger than the other wine producers in the area.
Underneath the winery grounds is a wine cellar. It is about 3 football fields long and wraps around the whole hillside. Inside the main building is the tasting area where you can taste several dozen different kinds of locally made wine. You can easily spend 2 – 2 1/2 hours at Stone Hill.

The wines at Hermannhof are good, but the Missouri climate is not conducive to growing the European varieties that have made France and California famous. It was only a matter of time before the couple would seek out a new wine making perspective. They purchased Star Lane in 1996. “All the local farmers knew this was one of the warmest spots in the area,” Jim recalls. After consultation with renowned Central Coast grower Dale Hampton and soil scientist Paul Skinner, the Dierbergs realized that the land was best suited to growing Cabernet and its related varieties. They started with 100 acres. Click here to visit our web site! – Star Lane / Three Saints
