2017 marks the eighth year for the annual Home Grown Farm Tour. On August 26th, enjoy the self-guided tour featuring eight venues highlighting the diversity of local farms and nearly 250 years of history in Washington County. Start your day off at the Washington County Courthouse Farmer’s Market in Potosi, Missouri. There will be an information booth, and local craft displays along side market delights of produce, homemade jams, breads and honey.
New This Year — 2017 Homegrown Farm Fête!
Over the past 7 years of the Farm Tour, we’ve met so many great small growers and producers in the county that we couldn’t fit them all into the tour. This year, we’ve gathered them together under one BIG tent, donated by the Food Train, to present the 1st Annual Homegrown Farm Fête At Edg-Clif Farms & Vineyard.
There will be antique farm equipment on display, a haystack for the kids to jump in and animals… alpacas for sure and maybe goats & chickens, too! Local folks will be selling their produce, homegrown beef, honey, homemade jellies, jams, soaps, baskets, hand spun wool, grilled sausages, and hot kettle corn. So, during your tour of the Farmer’s Markets, growers and farms, don’t forget the Farm Fete at Edg-Clif. We’ll be open Saturday, August 26th from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm.
The Field Dinner
This event is a 5-course dinner which begins at 5:30 in the Barrel Room with appetizers featuring locally made cheeses, Edg-Clif wine, beer and sausages hand made by Jon Emanuel of the Old Caledonian.
Music will be provided by Potosi Mayor T.R. Dudley. Dinner will be served al fresco in the Pavilion at long, harvest-style tables. This year we’re featuring a whole pig roast and rotisserie chickens… all homegrown free range.
>Each year the Field Dinner supports two Agriculture scholarships and a Farm Business grant for Washington County residents.
Is there anything better than waking up in the country and smelling the fresh air or sitting by a bonfire at night? We don't think so! We somehow managed to decorate our little cottage between picking grapes and making wine. It is now available for weekend rental! Click here to see photos and for more information.
Wine tastings and tours are offered year round. Bring a picnic basket to enjoy the afternoon in our beautiful country surroundings. During the nice weather, tastings are located in our outdoor pavillion. When its chilly we have a fire in the firepit or in the stone fireplace in our outdoor pavilion.
In the winter wine tastings are located in our winery up the hill, where we have several tables, restrooms and a small shop area for visitors. We are open on Saturdays, Sundays and Holiday Mondays from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm and Fridays from 2:00 - 7:00 pm.
Our farm is family friendly with plenty of room for children to play. (No outside beverages allowed.) Please know that dogs are welcome, but on leashes only as we have cats to protect.
Most of our wines are Estate Bottled, which means we make our wine from our own grapes harvested in our vineyards and are bottled in our winery on premises. Our wines range from dry red to sweet white and everything in between!

Edg-Clif is located on a 550 acre vintage farm nestled in the Ozark Mountains. This historic conservation site, near Potosi, Missouri, is just 65 miles southwest of St. Louis. Whether you are looking for a country vineyard wedding venue or a wine tasting, Edg-Clif is the place! We are now proud to offer a variety of craft beers, made on site in our new brewery.
Wine tastings and tours are offered year round. In the winter wine tastings are located in our cozy wine tasting cottage on Saturdays, Sundays and Holiday Mondays from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.

Enjoy a cocktail reception near a historic 1931 granary barn, decorate with antique wagons and tractors, surprise guests with a canon salute and a variety of firework displays.
(Wedding photos are allowed with advanced reservation and $100 fee.)
The Hand Picked Wine Club was created to bring our friends and valued customers together to celebrate the different wines made at Edg-Clif.
Our goal was to develop something more than just another club where wine is shipped to people on a list without them really getting to know the wine and how it was created. Edg-Clif is proud of the care and creativity that goes into developing each of its wines. When they are ready for our customers to enjoy, it is an event worth sharing.
We host special wine tasting parties four times a year, exclusively for the Hand Picked Wine Club Members and our staff to commemorate the process and introduction of our new vintages and wines! Click here for more information.
