Augusta has become synonymous with wine country.
And that is for a good reason. Our rolling hills and vineyards are reminiscent of Bordeaux and Napa Valley. Wine and grape-growing is part of the DNA and structure of our culture in Augusta. It is the lifeblood that holds together our community and is as central a feature to our town as the Missouri River.

In the early 1870s, a freed slave traveled north on the Mississippi River from the Civil War-torn south and settled near Defiance, Missouri. Befriended by the Fluesmeier family, who lived on property next to that belonging to the family of Daniel Boone, the free man worked on their farm for many years. The man’s name was Joseph Chandler, and he died in 1952 at the age of 98. Chandler Hill Vineyards operates on the same property he once owned. The winery and tasting room stand on the site of Joseph Chandler’s modest cabin. During excavation, many century-old artifacts were uncovered, including a shotgun, rifle, tools, china and more. These relics of Joseph Chandler are on display at the winery. The stones from his original cabin foundation were also carefully removed and now surround the refreshing waterfall at the winery entrance.
Continuing the Legacy
Early in the 21st century, the current owners of Chandler Hill set a goal to create a Midwest winery like no other. Construction began in 2007 with the creation of a winery that idyllically is situated on a hilltop at the entrance to Missouri Wine Country. The essence of Chandler Hill is understated elegance. From the tasting room to our 5,000 square foot deck overlooking our vineyards, spring-fed lake, rolling hills and the inspiring Osage Valley teeming with wildlife, Chandler Hill is an enchanting year-round destination unlike any other. Painstakingly crafted from authentic materials and boasting signature details like our celestial sky lights, candle lighting over our oversize tasting bar or magnificent fireplace in the tasting room, Chandler Hill has the power to whisk visitors away to a special place. The owners invite you to visit and see why Chandler Hill Vineyards is Missouri’s most elegant winery.
