Historic Hermann lies in the heart of Missouri wine country and is the county seat of Gasconade County. It is known as ‘Missouri’s Rhine Village’, in reference to its German heritage. This small town is on the banks of the Missouri River, just 10 miles south of Interstate 70. It has a multitude of high-quality bed and breakfast lodging establishments and 150 historic buildings. Hermann lies near the Katy Trail, the 250-mile-long bike path that traverses most of the state. Hermann is perhaps best known for its wineries: Stone Hill Winery, (the largest winemaking business in the state) and Hermannhof Winery. Two miles south of town just off of Missouri Highway 100 West is Adam Puchta Winery, and Bias Winery is less than eight miles east of town on Missouri Highway 100. The town also hosts a Maifest during the third weekend in May and an Oktoberfest the first four weekends in October. In addition to wine, Hermann is called the sausage-making capital of Missouri. If you like old and authentic, visit this small town in eastern Missouri. Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system, serves Hermann. An early party of settlers was led by George Bayer and Edward Hermann, who bought the land and is considered by many to be the founder of the town.
