Most wine lovers are familiar with European varietals such as Cabernet, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Riesling or Pinot Noir, but these wines come from only one of the world’s many grape species. With its climatic diversity, North America is home to a large number of indigenous grape species whose wine-making potential is untapped. On this episode of Smart Companies KC discover why Vox Vineyards celebrates the remarkable diversity and how they are raising awareness of our native grapes.
Vox Vineyards sits above the Missouri river valley with a warm climate that is ideal for growing grapes. Owner/founder Jerry Eisterhold, a Missouri farm boy, grew up surrounded by wild grapes in upstream from Hermann, MO. Vox Vineyards grew out of Jerry’s desire to explore the entire winemaking process from grape growing through fermentation to drinking
