Somerset Ridge Vineyard & Winery
Somerset Ridge Vineyard & Winery is a family owned artisanal Kansas City winery dedicated to producing premium award winning wines from locally grown grapes. Our wines reflect regional character derived from our long, sunny days during the growing season and rocky limestone hills where our vines are located. Somerset Ridge is the largest vineyard in Kansas as we have over 9,000 vines! We are so proud to be pesticide free as we strive to make the highest quality wine for our wine lovers. Cindy and Dennis planted the first vines on the property in 1998. They both are huge wine lovers and thought having a few vines would be a fun hobby. Their first vintage was bottled in 2001 and they haven’t stopped bottling since! 20 years later, their fun hobby has become one of the best wineries in Kansas City!
After such great success with grapes and wine, Cindy and Dennis decided to create a hard cider. As we expanded into a new genre, we partnered with The Louisburg Cider Mill, just down the road from the vineyard. We created a fantastic hard cider! Our Lucky Dog hard cider has won a silver medal at the Seattle Cider Awards! This dry hard cider is made with 4 culinary apples and finishes with a nice bulldog bite. You have to come in and ask for a taste!
Our vineyard tasting room is open Wed-Sunday and is an easy 25 minute drive from the K.C. metro via Hwy 69 or 169 (Directions and Maps).
As we have grown over the years, we have expanded and opened a second location in the fabulous Martin City. In 2018 we opened our urban micro-winery in the beautiful Rosehill Gardens. Somerset Wine & Cider Bar is a seasonal location. We are open May-September on Fridays and Saturday evenings with live music every night. Come on out to either location to enjoy a glass of wine!
