About Us

Jowler Creek is Missouri's first green vineyard and winery. We use green technologies, such as solar power, to make our wine and use sheep to control weeks and chickens to reduce insects in our 7-acre sustainable vineyard. We currently make eight award-winning wines in various styles ranging from dry to sweet. We're located just 30 minutes north of downtown Kansas City, and our on-site tasting room is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for free wine tastings. You can also find our wines at more than 75 locals stores in Kansas and Missouri.
