Kansas Citians can experience locally grown grapes as never before at Aubrey Vineyards’ new Overland Park tasting room and wine bar (16350 Kenneth Rd.). Located right on the vineyard in a charming barn with a modern interior and plenty of outdoor seating, The Vineyard Tasting Room offers wine by the glass as well as a customized five wine-tasting experience designed around guests’ preferences. It starts by staff getting a sense of what wines the guest enjoys and translating them into Aubrey’s offerings. “We have found that many people don’t know the kind of grapes that we can grow in this Midwest, Kansas and Missouri area,” winemaker and general manager, Karine Hellwig, explains. “The grapes that we grow are very different than the California grapes.” Reservations are recommended, especially on weekends, although outdoor seating is first come, first served.
