Wineries In And Around the Lake of the Ozarks

Whether you’re an accomplished sommelier or new to the world of wine, there’s nothing better than tasting wine straight form the source. Everything from tastings to tours, remember you don’t need to head to California to get a rich introduction to the all types of wine.

Here are five wineries in the Lake of the Ozarks area that are a must for a romantic weekend getaway or a vacation with friends.

Seven Springs Winery: Seven Springs Winery and Vineyards sits atop 160 acres of rolling Missouri foothills between Camdenton and Osage Beach. The winery is less than a 10 minute drive from either location. The covered porch and patio area are ideal for enjoying a glass of wine and admiring the beautiful views.

Eichenberg Winery: 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.”

Shawnee Bluff Winery: Shawnee Bluff Winery offers wine by the bottle or by the glass. We also offer wine tastings in a beautiful setting with gorgeous views of the Lake of the Ozarks. We are located on Bagnell Dam Boulevard in Lake Ozark, situated atop the bluff with a 14 mile incredible, panoramic view of Lake of the Ozarks.  Originally renovated in 2011, we now have added new decks to enjoy our wine and view, an indoor tasting room and bistro if the weather isn’t ideal, and a new brick oven to prepare the best pizza at the Lake.  We have added a Banquet and Event Hall available for your special occasion of groups up to 50.

Golden Rock Winery: A casual atmosphere with wines made from the finest grapes sourced from vineyards around the world.  Our restaurant menu is based on a green kitchen platform with a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, pizza, pasta – something for everyone !

Casa De Loco Winery: Whether you’re looking for an afternoon picnic spot, an evening glass of wine by candlelight, or a luxurious overnight stay to sweep the one you love off her feet, Casa de Loco is the perfect place to go.  Romance and wineries go hand in hand and at Casa de Loco we are thrilled to go above and beyond to make your romantic getaway completely unforgettable!
