The 10 Most Beautiful Vineyards and Wineries Around Kansas City
Kansas City has it’s own Napa Valley, and you’ll find it all over the metro area. We have our very own city wine trail with selected vineyards and wineries, but we’re really here for
all the best scenery and wine we can find. Not all of these 10 are on the wine trail, but we feel like we’ve found some hidden gems!
1. Arcadian Moon - 19203 Old Highway 40, Higginsville, Missouri
You can soak up this amazing view from the tasting room and deck overlooking the lake, as you sip a glass of wine or a pint of handcrafted beer. It's not every day that a winery does both!
2. Rowe Ridge Vineyard & Winery - 11255 Leavenworth Rd., Kansas City, Kansas
This vineyard is a great place to forget about the rest of the world for a while. It's a smaller, family-owned place located on just ten acres. Tastings are available by appointment or during regular hours.
3. KC Wine - 13875 S Gardner Rd., Olathe, Kansas
The menu here at KC Wine includes sangria slushies, which is an invention I never thought I'd love as much as I do. They have amazing views of the vines, and sometimes live music and retreats. What else could you ask for?
4. Stonehaus Farms Winery - 24607 NE Colbern Rd., Lees Summit, Missouri
This little winery was founded in 1996 and continues as a family-owned and operated business. They have great scenery for weddings and other big events, or you can visit them for Oktoberfest instead.
5. Crescent Moon Winery - 15930 246th St., Lawrence, Kansas
Kansas grapes turn into some great wine, and you can help with the picking process when harvest season rolls around. Tours and tasting rooms give you a tastier side to the product, where you can relax and take in the views of a scenic vineyard with the widest skies.
6. Fence Stile Vineyards & Winery - 31010 W 124th St., Excelsior Springs, Missouri
This vineyard is a great place for a gathering, or just a tasting of their wine and the view. They also host numerous events through the year, so make sure you check their calendar!
7. Somerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery - 29725 Somerset Rd., Paola, Kansas
This family-owned vineyard in the rolling hills makes some of the best wines I've tasted, and offers beautiful tours, too! They also have tasting room hours, which is probably the best part of the trip! Maybe I just like wine....
8. Ladoga Ridge Winery - 100 E Pope Ln., Smithville, Missouri
The tasting room here is fantastic, and you can enjoy your wine overlooking some of the best scenery, with or without a fire pit. They don't host weddings or receptions, just small tours and tastings.
9. Riverwood Winery - 22200 State Route 45 N, Weston, Missouri
As you can see, this vineyard makes for a great wedding backdrop. They also make for a perfect picnic setting, which you can bring yourself or order from their kitchen.
10. Belvoir Winery and Inn - 1325 Odd Fellows Rd., Liberty, Missouri
One of the most stunning wineries in the area, they're literally named after the french word for "beautiful view." They have 170 acres of amazing scenery, and a beautiful inn to boot.
