Have a Good Laugh at the Winery!

Do you want to know what happens when you mix comedy and a winery? Comedy's Best Kept Secret Tour is what happens! We have so many fun events planned for your this year, and this is just one of the events that we love to come back year after year.  So come out and enjoy the evening with us at your favorite Lake of the Ozarks Winery.

Event Details

When: March 24th, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Why: Because there is nothing better than combining wine and laughter

Tickets are $25 per person, and you can call the winery at 573-317-0100 to make a reservation.

About the Comedy's Best Kept Secret Tour

Come see what happens when three Nationally touring Comedians embark on a two-month road trip and perform 50 shows in 50 days all to raise money for the Humane Society. Dan Frigolette @danfrigolette (Boardwalk Empire, Totally Biased, Artie Lange Show) Andrew Frank (Trial By Laughter) and a few special guests in each city are Comedy's Best Kept Secret -- amazingly talented comedians who haven't made it into the limelight...yet.

4 Reasons Laughing is Good for You 

If you thought that you were only coming to this event because it was a way to enjoy the evening - that's only ONE reason! Laughing is an incredibly healthy thing to do (as is drinking wine ... but we'll talk about that one later!). Here are four reasons that show why laughing is good for you:

1. Laughter Makes You Feel Better

Sure, this may seem basic, but if you've had a long week and you just need a good Friday evening full of relaxation - laughter can help! It will improve your mood, and leave you feeling refreshed.

2. Laughter Helps Your Immune System

Positive in, positive out! Stress can cause chemical reactions in your body that will DECREASE your immunity and increase your chances of getting sick. Laughter can fuel your immune system with disease-fighting powers and they can help you stay healthy and full of energy.

3. Laughter Can Help Your Heart

Laughter can reduce your blood pressure and increase blood flow - both of which help your heart by reducing your chance of heart attack and stroke.

4. Laughter Can Burn Calories

You may not want to replace your workout routine with just laughter, but it certainly would help aid your efforts! Studies show that laughing raises your heart rate and caloric expenditure, and this results in about 10-40 calories being burned over 15 minutes of laughter. This event is two hours long, so we'll let you do the math *wink*.

Whether you like music on the patio, food events in the banquet hall, or laughter at the winery - we have something for everyone! Bring your friends out for a night of laughter and fun with the Comedy's Best Kept Secret Tour. Don't forget to make a night of it and join us at the winery for the best food at the Lake of the Ozarks as well! Come out for dinner and wine before ending the night on a funny note. We can't wait to see you!

Come for the wine...Stay for the atmosphere...Remember the view! 

Seven Springs is the finest Winery at the Lake of the Ozarks with a full-service facility perfect for outdoor weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, and parties.  Call us today to make reservations for your special event!

We have five courses planned for you all with amazing beers to complement your meal. Join us on March 18th at 5:00 PM in our new reception hall at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you don't have anything going on - this event will be incredible!

About the Beers

The Springfield Brewing Company features many unique beers, and have stuck true to tradition with ales & lagers. They've been winning awards since 1997 with their fresh flavor and fun names. Do you want to learn more about their beer and the story behind each one? Visit their website at www.SpringfieldBrewingCo.com. They only feature certain beers during certain times of the year - but we have some special flavors planned for you at the Rotary Beer Pairing Dinner!

Greene Ghost

Greene Ghost IPA starts off with hops in the nose, then with a nice smack of hops on the kisser, followed by a lingering hoppy wonderfulness! And the right blend of malts, mashing profile, fermentation control, and craft keeps Greene Ghost in balance.





Double Track Doppelbock

Double Track has rich, bread-like malt flavors, from a luscious blend of the best German Munich malts, it is served mit naturtrüb, or “with natural cloud”, not only does this contribute to its rich palate, but it also makes the bottles good for aging and cellaring.




Katydid Kolsch

Our Katydid Kölsch has a spicy and hoppy nose, dry palate, and wonderful grain notes from the pilsner malt used in the mash. The flavor balance is pushed in the direction of hop bitterness and the result is a great beer to celebrate all things spring!





Hop Lobster IPA

Hop Lobster has two sides to its flavor profile. On one hand, it’s a terrific, hoppy ale; lots of citrus aroma from the Centennial and Cascade hops and plenty of hop bitterness from the Perle hops used in the first hop addition. On the other hand, this is a luscious, malty brew with lots of palate filling flavors from the crystal malts used in the blend.

Arrghy Night + Blood Orange

Orange zest, rum, molasses, vanilla, and oak aromas layered on top of a big, roasty strong stout







Enjoy Your Weekend at the Winery

Amazing beer, incredible food on the menu, exciting company, and the chance to make a difference - what more could you ask for in a weekend? Grab your friends and join us at the best winery at the Lake of the Ozarks for the 4th Annual Rotary Beer Pairing Dinner. The meal costs $59, but the money is going to a great cause!

Wine & Wedding Cake - An Amazing Pair!

Wine and wedding cake go hand in hand when you'll be celebrating your big day! Of course, pairing your wine and wedding cake can feel like a science. While many bakeries encourage you to taste your cake ahead of time, we think you should have a cake and wine pairing session, too ... just to make sure they work well together! Here are a few ideas to get you started on pairing your Missouri wine and your wedding cake.


Chocolate Cake

The rich and decadent flavors of chocolate cake make it a popular choice for weddings. No matter what type of chocolate you are choosing, you can count on our Norton to complete the perfect pair. The opaque, deep plum color will look magnificent with the rich chocolate, and the tobacco and oak flavors, along with the full bodied, spicy smooth persistent finish will be magnificent.

Fruit Flavors

From strawberry to lemon, fresh and fruity flavors can be a dream for your summer wedding. You'll want to pair a wine that is just as fresh and fun as your cake, so we recommend trying the Moscato Sparkling. The brilliant, light straw color will mimic the freshness of your light cake. The tropical fruit and flower flavors with the light bodied, fruit forward sparkling finish will pair nicely with your fresh, fruit flavored cake. Not to mention, the sparkling aspect of this wine will be a fun way to celebrate your wedding!

White Cake

This classic cake is a natural choice for many brides. It complements the clean and white style you've tried to achieve through your wedding. It's uncomplicated, delicious, and classic. You want to pair a wine that has the same characteristics but also brings out the flavor as well. We recommend pairing our Chardonel white wine with your white cake. The light to medium straw color will complement your cake, and the medium body and fruity, toasted oak flavor will enhance the vanilla flavors in your cake and frosting.

Red Velvet Cake

When you're looking for the perfect pair for your rich, velvety, red velvet cake - you need a velvety wine! Try pairing our Spring Red with your red velvet wedding cake. The semi-sweet finish will pair wonderfully with the rich texture of the red velvet cake, and the hint of black cherry with the rich chocolate flavors will be divine. This wine ends with a velvet finish - perfect for this type of cake.

Spicy Cake

From spice cake to carrot cake, there are many delicious cakes out there that have a bit of spice. If you're looking for a wine that will pair wonderfully with these types of cake - we would like to suggest our Vignoles variety. The mild straw color pairs well with these cakes because while they can be rich, they aren't quite ready for a red wine. This flavorful bodied wine with peach, melon, and citrus helps to bring out the spicy flavor of either cake, and the fruity tones highlight the carrot in carrot cake.

The Best Wine at the Lake of the Ozarks

The wine you choose for your wedding is just as important as the meal and the cake. They work together simultaneously, and we would love to help you make the choice. At Seven Springs Winery, we are not only the best winery at the Lake of the Ozarks, but we host the best wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks. From small quaint affairs to large beautiful gatherings, our Lake of the Ozarks venue is perfection. Visit our website to learn more about our wedding planning services and how you can host your wedding at an affordable wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks.

7 Reasons to Drink Wine

The day you’ve been waiting for is almost here - Drink Wine Day! On February 18th, chill the bottle, pull the glasses out of the cabinet (or dishwasher - come on, we just used them last night.) and help us raise a toast to the best beverage around. At Seven Springs Winery, we know a thing or two about wine, and we drink a glass or two, too - I mean, we may be biased, but we believe we have the best wine at the Lake of the Ozarks! Before we take that first luxurious sip of our favorite Missouri wine, here are a few reasons that wine is actually healthy for you.


1. Wine Can Lower The Risk of Heart Disease

Is this a myth? Nope! Evidence shows that the tannins in red wine contain procyanidins (we need a few glasses to even attempt to pronounce this), and they are known to help reduce the risk and protect you from heart disease.

2. Can Help You Live Longer

If you’ve ever said “life isn’t worth living without wine” then you may be on to something! Studies have shown that the daily consumption of wine can help you live longer. Granted, this is also combined with other healthy lifestyles - so man cannot live on wine alone, but you definitely shouldn’t live without it!

3. Wine May Make You Smarter

We already knew you were smarter for drinking it, but there are studies that show that resveratrol in wine may help improve your short-term memory.

4. Can You Banish Breakouts With Wine?

Some studies show that the resveratrol in wine is able to inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria longer than benzoyl peroxide. So far, the best way to get the benefit is by drinking your wine, but a wine bath couldn’t possibly hurt anything either ;).

5. Is Wine Equal to Exercise?

If you had to pick drinking wine or going to the gym, which would you choose? Just kidding - we know the answer to that one! Scientists at the University of Alberta in Canada found that wine can improve the heart, brain, and even the bone function in the same way that it is improved at the gym. We don’t, however, condone exercising and drinking wine at the same time …

6. Wine Can Beat the Blues

Sure, wine can help you relax, but did you know it can also help reduce your chances of depression? A study in Spain found that men and women who drank two to seven glasses of wine a week were less likely to be diagnosed with depression.

7. Wine Is Even Good For Your Lungs

While red wine is commonly referenced, white wine even offers benefits for your health. White wine has been linked to healthy lung function. Studies showed that people with varying alcohol consumption and lifestyle habits were given a lung function test and the wine drinkers had the highest levels of protective antioxidants in their blood and better lung function.

This weekend is shaping up to have BEAUTIFUL weather, and we think the best way to enjoy Drink Wine Day would be on our patio with a glass (or bottle) of your favorite wine. Our recently renovated landscape provides the perfect place to kick back and enjoy our amazing view, and when you get hungry, our menu features some delectable selections. Visit our website to learn more about our winery at the Lake of the Ozarks - we can't wait to serve you!

Come for the wine...Stay for the atmosphere...Remember the view!

How To Pair White Wine

Fresh and cool flavors are just part of the reason we love white wine. It can be paired with many different dishes, from appetizers to dessert, and no two white wines are exactly the same. At Seven Springs Winery, we have six white wine varieties that will pair well with your dinner and tempt the taste buds. Here are a few different types of food to consider trying with your next white Missouri wine.


About White Wine

There are hundreds of varieties of white grapes that can be used for wine. They can come from all areas of the world and can have many varied flavors. Unlike red wines, that can have dark, romantic flavors, and sometimes even spicy - you'll find more fruity tones in a white wine. From citrus flavors to apple or papaya, white wine is full of flavor.

Dry Vignoles

Aromas of tangerine and oranges. Crisp vibrant acidity precedes a long and refreshing finish.

Pair With: Our dry Vignoles would taste fantastic when paired with a spicy dish or meals that are "fragrant." Curries and spice (especially a spice with heat) can make the wine seem drier, and then accentuate the citrus notes. You can also try pork loin or tenderloin.

Chardonel

Light to medium straw color. Medium body, fruity with toasted oak.

Pair With: This medium-full bodied wine pair wonderfully with roast chicken or turkey. Because this wine has an "oaky" flavor, it would also pair beautifully with a smoked salmon or trout.

Traminette

Light straw with green hues. Light bodied, with a fruity yet off dry finish.

Pair With: This wine will pair well with medium-bodied dishes, especially those that are spicy or slightly sweet. You can pair it with heavier fish, shellfish, chicken, pork and veal, as well as Pacific rim foods from China, Thailand, Vietnam, and Mexico.

Vignoles

Mid straw color with olive green tone. Flavorful bodied, peach, melon & citrus.

Pair With: The fruity flavors in this wine pair well with spicy or Asian dishes. You can also try Swiss cheese or salmon. A delicious fruit chutney would also pair beautifully with a Vignoles wine.

Muscato Sparkling

Brilliant light straw, tropical fruit & flowers. Light bodied, fruit forward sparkling finish.

Pair With: This variety of wine is easy to pair with many types of foods, but it pairs especially well with sweet desserts. Pastries, puddings, ice cream, cake - you really can't go wrong.

The Best Winery at the Lake of the Ozarks

Seven Springs Winery and Vineyards sits atop 160 acres of rolling Missouri foothills between Camdenton and Osage Beach. The winery is less than a 10-minute drive from either location. The covered porch and patio area are ideal for enjoying a glass of wine and admiring the beautiful views.
Our winery serves Missouri wines, sangrias, and a few micro-brews for those with an alternative pallet. We offer wine tastings and a light menu consisting of soups, sandwiches, cheese trays, and bread with various dipping oils. Come for the wine, stay for the atmosphere, and remember the view!
