Wines

Meyer Farms Wine is proud to introduce five extraordinary wines that showcase the quality of wine-making in Missouri. In recognition of the family’s history in Lawrence County, and acknowledging the truth of “Behind every great man, stands a great woman,” the first five wines have been named in honor of five great ladies from the Meyer family.

Reds

Jana

The Norton is a hardy American grape and is the official state grape of Missouri.

Jana is a full-bodied, dry red wine with rich berry flavors and spicy earth overtones.

Uncork a bottle of this wine to serve with that steak off the grill or appetizers in front of the fireplace.

Joy

A blend of St. Vincent, Concord, and Chambourcin grapes, this medium-bodied red wine presents aromas of raspberry and cherry.

Served chilled, this wine is the perfect accompaniment to Missouri’s warm summer evenings.

Janie

The Vignole is one of Missouri’s most versatile white grapes.

With a rich floral nose and fruity flavors, this wine has hints of pineapple and apricot.

Janie delivers a touch of sweetness with a crisp, subtle finish.

As you uncork a bottle of this wine, take a moment to enjoy its rich, floral bouquet.

Sophie

The Cayuga White and Symphony blend perfectly together to create this sweet white wine.

Symphony adds the essence of citrus, apricot, and peach to the Cayuga’s light-bodied, fruity and fragrant flavor.

Did you catch the hint of honeydew?

Rosé

Connie

A tantalizing blend of Cayuga White and Catawba creates a blush unlike any other.

The Cayuga White has been described as “Germanic” in style, with a light-bodied fragrant citrus flavor.

The Catawba grape produces a medium bodied, sweet, fragrant strawberry-like flavor.

The result is Connie, which is a dramatic fruit flavored Rose. This wine is the perfect finishing touch for any evening.

Damn Dog

Damn Dog Story

I keep getting asked about the story behind Damn Dog wine. For those of you who know Ken and Jane Mayer, this story will make you smile.

Once upon a time, there was a Basset Hound named Otto.

Otto chose to live with Ken and Jane Meyer.

Jane loved Basset Hounds, Ken. . . not so much. While Jane lavished time and attention on Otto, Ken treated him like a DOG!

Otto, being a precocious puppy, decided to demand the attention from Ken that he knew he deserved. Although Otto was just trying to play, in Ken Meyer's words “that damn dog keeps trying to trip me.”

Otto’s successful attempts at attention-getting, (i.e. tripping Ken) meant he also became accustomed to being called Damn Dog and there came a day when that was the name he answered to.

Unfortunately for a Jane, Otto (Damn Dog) was also something of an escape artist. He would regularly manage to get out of the house and roam the neighborhood of Southern Hills. So Jane Meyer, a very proper lady, would find herself searching the neighborhood, whispering as loudly as she could, “Damn Dog, come home Damn Dog”

Meyer Farms is proud to introduce Damn Dog Red and Damn Dog White in honor of Otto the Basset Hound.
