Etlah Hills Vineyard

“Sustainably grown grape varieties in Berger, Missouri.”

“We grow Norton wine grapes using no chemicals. Our grapes are great for home wine making , juice, and jam.

From our Farmer Specialist: “They founded Etlah Hills Vineyard in 2006 and have never used man made chemical fertilizers or pesticides on their land. Peggy is a master naturalist and volunteers at Shaw Nature Reserve as a naturalist instructor.

Peggy also volunteers with the St. Louis Audubon Society’s Bring Conservation Home project. They view their entire farm as habitat for native flora and fauna, and try to intervene with nature as little as possible in their farming operation. They have learned that Norton grapes make delicious jelly and juice in addition to making great tasting wine.”
