The Northland has several wineries that follow sustainable practices. The Jowler Creek Vineyard and Winery near Platte City began when its owners moved to the site in 2003 and then planted 250 Norton vines (Missouri’s state grape). First intending just to sell the grapes, they decided to start making wine. Among the “green” practices: bat houses and chickens. The winery at 16905 Jowler Creek Road features a raccoon logo.
