The St. Aubert Connection
Dear loyal and valued Customer.
In reasoned months you noticed a change in our label as it reads now: St Aubert Hill Vineyard dba/ Phoenix Winery.
St. Aubert Hills Wines!
St. Aubert Hills Vineyards began growing grapes in the spring of 2007. Nestled in the rolling hills of Osage County just south of the Missouri River, the relative higher elevation and abundant sunshine provide an excellent environment to grow a variety of grapes, including several French hybrid likes Chardonel, Vidal and Chambourcin. St. Aubert Hills also grows the “native” Norton grape, a favorite of Missouri wine lovers everywhere.
In 2010, St. Aubert Hills Vineyards teamed with Phoenix Winery of Owensville, Missouri, and began producing a number of premium wines from the grapes grown in Osage County and those grown by Phoenix Winery. Guenther Heeb, a native of Germany, serves as the wine maker for Phoenix Winery.
The experience and tradition that Guenther brings to St. Aubert Hills wines is evident in the rich bouquet of our wines.
St. Aubert Hills takes pride in the way we grow our grapes. We strive to use only natural fertilizers and refrain from using harsh chemicals. Each vine is hand trimmed and much effort is made to give each vine individual treatment. No commercial pickers or machinery is used, only human touch and care is utilized, the way grapes were grown centuries ago by our forefathers.
We hope that you enjoy your wine “experience” each time you open a bottle of our wine. Sit back, pop a cork and taste wine the way it was meant to be enjoyed – naturally and without the pretense of the big, “over-commercialized” wineries that have sprung up recently. St. Aubert Hills wines will leave you with a taste of Osage County each time you enjoy it, a taste we know you will look forward to experiencing over and over!
