About Backyard Vine & Wine

Backyard is a small, family owned vineyard and winery located in Maryville, Missouri.

It began as a retirement project by our father, Carl Christensen. Starting off as some fun cleaning up the land, or as he calls it, “playing in the dirt.” His love of the outdoors and his green thumb inspired him to dive in further and start this journey that pulled us all together to create this beautiful vineyard and some terrific Missouri wines.

With the help of family and friends, Carl transformed the land from a mess of tangled trees and a growing pile of junk, into a very serene acreage with approximately five acres of grapevines intertwining three ponds. The first vines were planted in 2008 with additional plots added in subsequent years. Currently we have seven varieties totaling around 2600 plants and plan to add another 100 of an eighth variety in 2022.
