Lachance Vineyards

Desoto, MO 63020


Hours: Year Round

Founded by Harold and Tami Hamby, LaChance Vineyards (pronounced la-shontz) is named in honor of Harold's great-grandfather, Ferdinand 'Zep' LaChance. A poor man of French descent, Zep's good nature and eternal optimism remain a constant source of inspiration to Harold and Tami and their staff.

LaChance Vineyards may be Jefferson County's newest winery, but it is also one steeped in a rich family history. The LaChance property - which was originally purchased by Harold's parents in the 1970's - has been in the Hamby family for decades.

For years, the land was primarily used as an orchard and weekend retreat for Harold and his youngest son, Hayden, who made frequent father-son trips from their family home in St. Louis. But when Hayden mentioned that he could see the family making a permanent home in De Soto, Harold knew the time had come to turn his dream of owning a winery into a reality.
