This historic winery located between St. James and Cuba was built after prohibition in 1934, by Italian immigrants who settled the Rosati community and developed the areas grape and wine industry.
The building now houses a museum dedicated to the Italians that came to America searching for a better life and finding it here in Missouri.
The history is told through old photographs, historic artifacts and documents, vintage wine making equipment and a video titled "Rosati Missouri-Little Italy of the Ozarks", in which local residents tell their story of the Rosati community from 1898 to 1988. What do Welchs Grape Company, German prisoners of war and Route 66 have in common with Rosati? You will have to visit us to find out.
In addition to the museum, there is a Gift/Wine Shop which highlights and sells Missouri wine from all eight wine regions in the state, and a few from Italy too. This is opportunity to do some wine tasting and buy wines from all around the state of Missouri from one convenient location and get details on those outstanding wineries you enjoyed so you can plan a trip to visit them.
The Rosati Winery Museum is also the perfect venue for your next event. The historic "Leo Cardetti Room" is located in the original 1934 wine processing room and features exposed wood beams and rustic brick walls. There is an adjacent kitchen, coat room and outdoor deck that are also available for use. Room capacity is up to 100 guests.
