About Aubrey Vineyards

from the Heart of the Midwest

The year 2010 marked the acquisition of approximately 200 acres in southern Overland Park, Johnson County, Kansas, right near the state line.  Much of the land was and still is being used by crop and livestock farmers. On the way back from a trip to Napa, a local Johnson County family realized the land could also be used to grow grapes and produce wine.

In 2012, vines were planted and grapes began to grow, establishing Aubrey Vineyards as the first winery in Overland Park. The vines are planted on land with the highest elevations around and contains gentle slopes of fertile, loamy soil that is low in clay content, which is the perfect environment for grape vines. The high location affords breezes on most days, which helps ward off vine diseases. Slopes with porous loam keep the soil well-drained.
