Notes
Survey number HABS MO-255
Significance: Wine production has always been an important part of Hermann's economy. A small private winery established by Michael Poeschel in 1847 grew into Stone Hill Wine Company, the most successful of Hermann's commercial wineries. Building began on the present site in 1861. The original complex included the shipping cellars built that year and a residence-company office building built in 1869. Before it was closed by Prohibition, the winery was reported to be the third largest in the world and the second largest in the US. Used for mushroom culture for many years, the original winery complex was recently returned to the production of wine on a limited scale.
