The winery is located in downtown Weston, about 20 miles northwest of Kansas City, Missouri (take Exit 20 off I-29). Housed in an 1867 church building, the winery produces white wines from Cayuga White and Seyval Blanc; red wines from Norton, Chambourcin, St. Vincent and Concord. The grapes are grown in the Pirtle’s vineyard and by several local growers. Also produced are apple wine and mead (honey wine). Mead is believed to be the most ancient of fermented beverages. The Pirtle winery has attained a national reputation for superior mead.
