This is Philip Schultz of Schultz Vineyards LLC. We are just getting started as entrepreneurs in the grape-growing industry, located near Hermann, Mo. and are looking for potentially interested wineries looking to set up some sort of contract to grow one or more varieties of any certain grape with either same root stock or a grafted stock, if preferred. We are looking forward to starting with 10 acres, with anticipation of expanding to 20-30 acres in the next 3-5 years. We realize you will need more information/credentials and we welcome any questions or concerns you have on the topic. Please feel free to email us any time at [email protected] or call me at 573-418-4709.
