Can you ship wine to my state? What are the shipping costs?

Do your wines contain sulfites?

Yes, our wines contain sulfites. Sulfites are a natural by-product of the fermentation process.


Can I bring my kids to the winery? Can my teenaged child taste wines with my permission?

Children are not prohibited from coming to the winery, however, we do not have any kid-centered activities, and it is not a safe environment for a very young child unsupervised. Please use your own discretion as to what your own child can handle when deciding whether or not to bring the kids along. We cannot pour wines for minors due to state and federal laws.



Are your wines/meads gluten-free?

All Pirtle wines and meads are gluten-free. Additionally, our wines are vegan; they contain no animal products such as gelatin.


Is your tasting room handicapped accessible?

Our tasting room is located in the upper level of a former German Lutheran Church that was built in 1867 and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Due to the historic nature of the building handicapped access to the main tasting area is limited. However, we also have a tasting area in our recently-renovated lower level that may be more accessible to our handicapped guests. Please call the winery at 816.640.5728 in advance of your visit so that we can make accommodations.
