Osage Orange Vineyard & Winery 

Osage Orange Vineyard & Winery (or OOVW) is a home-based, family run business located near Kirksville, MO. well within the Conservation Department’s designation area known as the Mystic Plains Prairie land.

Their wine is hand-crafted on site using mostly fruit grown in the vineyard, from their trees (namely pear, peach and apple), and from the produce from the family garden (e.g. watermelon, pumpkin, rhubarb, various berries and herbs like mint).

They also have bees and plan to have more hives to increase their honey production for honey wine (mead).  “Going green” is very beneficial to their bees, prairie grasses and native flowers and also to them, as their garden produce normally ends up at their dining table. 

OOVW also does some catering from their health inspected kitchen.

Currently open by appointment only, the tasting room is planned to open with regular hours the summer of 2018.
