Saltpeter Cave

Saltpeter Cave



Saltpeter Cave: Our natural Saltpeter Cave is located directly underneath our winery & tasting room.  Once guests have made a purchase of one of our fine Missouri wines, they are welcome to picnic inside the cave. Very little has been historically recorded about the cave. We do know that the name Saltpeter comes from the time of the early French Settlers.

It is believed that the cave was once minded for Saltpeter, which was used to make gunpowder.

Today, the cave is inhabited primarily by picnickers & wine enthusiasts, enjoying the sounds of the babbling brook and the taste of quality Missouri wines.
