|Fond childhood memories and old German family traditions eventually merged, leading to the birth of Eichenberg Winery in the picturesque town of Cole Camp, Missouri. The winery, housed in what was once an old blacksmith shop, still reflects some of its history with the old, original ceiling beams still in place. According to owners, Rodger and Theila Luetjen, the Eichenberg name when loosely translated means “oak hills.” Three acres of German-style grapes produce the many varieties of wines featured here, including Baco Noir, Weiswein, Seyval, Rosawein and Liebersaft. There are plans to expand the vineyard in the near future. Besides a plentiful selection of product on hand, the winery also features a gift shop and garden, offering plenty of relaxing places to sit, sample and savor!
Don’t miss an opportunity to visit the Eichenberg Winery in the unique German town of Cole Camp – just a hop, skip and jump from the Lake of the Ozarks area and well worth the drive.
