Bias Winery & Gruhlke's Microbrewery
Have you ever wanted to own a winery & microbrewery, complete with all equipment and current product & inventory? Well, today is your lucky day, because Bias Winery & Gruhlke's Microbrewery is on the market due to the owners wanting to retire! Located just a few miles east of Hermann in Berger, & one of 7 wineries on the Hermann Wine Trail, Bias Winery is nestled atop a bluff overlooking the rich Missouri River bottomlands with breathtaking views. The 6-acre (once 9-acre) vineyard is visible from the Tasting Room, as well as from the indoor and outdoor seating areas with bandstand stage for live music. During inclement weather, the Hearth Room accommodates up to 100 people, and offers a stone fireplace to warm guests during the winter months. As the first winery in Franklin County, Bias has been in business for over 40 years, and later became the first winery in Missouri to combine both a winery and a microbrewery. Not only do you get an established winery/microbrewery with a residence onsite, but you also get over 66 acres of some of the best Franklin County topography money can buy that is loaded with wildlife & more morel honey holes than you can imagine. It's difficult to point out which features are best when you have a spring-fed creek, 2 picturesque ponds, rich bottomland, 6 acres of vineyards, 20 acres of cleared/tillable land that produces 700+ bales of hay, & then those views from the bluff where you can sit & watch the Bald Eagles scout for food in the bottoms below. Plus, did you see all of those gorgeous Dogwood trees?? The 2016 sq ft modified 2-story home offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with many updates. In 2020, the sellers installed new flooring, tile and paint throughout, and in 2021 they installed new vinyl siding and a cedar deck to help enjoy the views. The home is all electric with a new heat pump installed in 2018, but has a full masonry, wood-burning fireplace in the main level. In 2017, the well pressure gauge and all lines from the winery to the septic were replaced. If you have your own camper/RV, they also have a 30-amp connection. Between the house and the winery there is a 36 x 50 shop with concrete floors, drains, and 220 single phase electric with a 3 phase converter. Use this space for your many hobbies, or as an extension to the winery during harvest. The winery building is 5220 sq ft, complete with a tasting room, hearth room with full masonry fireplace, kitchen, guest and employee bathrooms, and working area. The opportunities are truly endless with this property. You could continue to run the business as is, or expand it with an added RV park, wedding venue, cabins for rent, restaurant, etc. Let your imagination run wild!
