Meet Our Family
Sainte Genevieve Winery is a family owned and operated business that was established in 1983 by Chris and Hope Hoffmeister: “We have a commitment to making quality, hand crafted Missouri wine in small lots. We would like to have a wine that suits every palate and every pocketbook.”
Helping to ensure their continued growth and success, their daughter, Elaine Hoffmeister Mooney, returned to the winery after receiving her degree in enology from the prestigious California State University- Fresno. “Our family would like to market estate bottled wines while continuing to offer a wide vareity of fruit wines.
Ste. Genevieve is located right on the Mississippi River, only one hour south of St. Louis. Sainte Genevieve Winery is located in the downtown historic district nestled between restaurants and antique shops. We have free samples of all our wines, a unique grape and wine related gift shop and local sausages and cheese available for an outdoor picnic under our grape arbor.
