Our name came from our family- the 4Ms: Marvin, Margie, Michelle, and Mike. My grandparents, Russel & Hellen Rippelmeyer, were also an integral part of our retail sales during the 1980s. We started selling grapes from the back of a pickup truck and have grown to be the largest seller of concord grapes in Missouri. 4M Vinyard has been, and continues to be, a family owned & operated business since 1984. I am the 3rd generation to work the roadside stand, along with my partner Jody.
