The nearly 300 acre site includes the historic home, adjoining historic village grounds, and surrounding property. St. Charles County continues to operate the historic park as a tourist site. The village is comprised of 16 buildings that have been moved to the property from within 50 miles of the site. Each building dates back to the 1800s. The general store, schoolhouse and grist mill offer a peek into life on the Missouri frontier. Collectively, the buildings represent a pioneer village of that time period.

When our German settlers first arrived to this region in the 1800s, it reminded them of everything they loved about their homeland. The sweeping vistas of the Missouri River valley, the Osage Ridge with its tree-covered slopes.
These hard-scrabble few soon created a new way of life and an entire community centered on wine-growing and wine-making. Vineyards and cozy farmsteads began to line the bluffs. Wine took on the role as the center of the community.
The Augusta Wine Trail was created to celebrate our shared location in the Augusta AVA (American Viticultural Area), which was the first designed grape growing area in the country. The wines that come from this area are the centerpiece of what joins our four wineries together. And while wine is the centerpiece, what we create is the chance to preserve this tradition for generations to come.
