Riverwood Winery

Riverwood Winery Riverwood Winery is proud to be one of the newest additions to the Missouri wine family. The Winery is situated at the foot of the scenic Missouri River bluffs which were formed millions of years ago as glaciers moved into the area. The Winery's location offers visitors wonderful views of the surrounding riverbluff hills as they change from season to season and the adjacent agricultural fields as the crops grow, ripen and are harvested.

The July 3, 1804 camp site of the Lewis and Clark expedition is located approximately one mile due west of the winery. The Winery provides tourists and visitors an opportunity to purchase fruit and grape wines and wine-related gifts and products.
