Missouri Life Media film debuts at Stone Hill Winery

Rocheport, MO – Exploring Missouri’s German Heritage, a documentary produced by Missouri Life Media, premieres on April 28 at Stone Hill Winery.

“We’re looking forward to hosting an exclusive night of a four-course German dinner made by Stone Hill Winery and entertainment throughout the evening with this amazing documentary,” says KateLynn Ketsenburg, the marketing and events coordinator for Missouri Life Media. The premiere will include live commentary from Explore Missouri’s German Heritage book author and editors, the producers, Emmy-winning Missouri Life TV Host Meredith Hoenes, and members of the Missouri Humanities Council.

Exploring Missouri’s German Heritage is a personal tour guide into the unique Missouri German heritage, based on the book by Missouri author, Dr. W. Arthur Mehrhoff.

The documentary includes rare archival materials as well as places people can visit along the Missouri River. The documentary lets viewers sample the German culture and influence upon Missouri’s development: their bedrock antislavery principles and support of the Union; their industrious work ethic and craftsmanship that shaped so much of our built environment; and a talent for fun that germinated an abundance of popular breweries, wineries, bandstands, and other treasured aspects of our culture. 

Tickets include a special gift bag that includes two books, Little Germany on Missouri and Explore Missouri’s German Heritage. The gift bag also includes German- and Missouri-themed goodies. Meet and mingle with author Arthur Mehrhoff; Missouri Life TV host Meredith Hoenes; Missouri Life founders Greg Wood and Danita Allen Wood; and the owners of Stone Hill, Jon and Karen Held.
