Amigoni Urban Winery produces small lots of dry handcrafted wines in the Stockyards District of Kansas City’s Historic West Bottoms.
We focus on traditional European grape varietals, like Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Viognier, while experimenting with some lesser known varietals.
Our locally made wines are produced from grapes grown from the West Coast.
Our Winery was established in 2006 when Michael Amigoni decided to take his home winemaking hobby to the next level. After planting Cabernet Franc vines in his backyard in Leawood, Kansas, he and his wife, Kerry, purchased land in Centerview, Missouri.
For more than two decades the Amigoni Vineyards served as a classroom for Michael while he developed as a winemaker.

The first tasting room for Amigoni was located in the Livestock Exchange Building and production started at around 300 cases.
In 2011 renovations began on our current tasting room, located in the Daily Drover Telegram Building, across the street from the original spot. In May of 2012 renovations were completed and we opened our tasting room with an attached event space.
Amigoni has now expanded production to 5,000 cases annually. Because of this growth we look solely to our West Coast partners for quality vinifera grapes. With these relationships we are able to utilize grapes like Cinsaut, Barbera, Sangiovese and Tempranillo. Whole cluster fruit arrives at our production facility in the West Bottoms where it is crushed, pressed, fermented, barrel-aged and bottled.
Our tasting room is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday with no appointment necessary.
Guests can also tour our facility by appointment. Our tours take you behind the scenes where you will learn about the winemaking process from grape to bottle. For more information or to book a tour, click here or email [email protected].
