The 2011 Small Emerging Enterprise of the Year was awarded to the Golden Rock Winery in Camdenton. The criterion for this award is for a business to best display the innovation, entrepreneurial accomplishments and/or utilization of emerging technology.
The winery is owned and operated by Scott and Jennifer Woods and boasts over 30 worldly wines and a unique restaurant menu. Rather than relocating, they remodeled their existing building, switching their business from Woods Lawn and Garden to a winery. According to LORDEC, they have revived an area of the town that has seen a decrease in traffic since the opening of the Highway 5 Expressway. LORDEC says they have not only brought fine dining to Camdenton, but have added a popular destination. They recognized a gap in the business community and filled it, therefore, adding to the Camdenton community and its quality of life.
A casual atmosphere with wines made from the finest grapes sourced from vineyards around the world. Our restaurant menu is based on a green kitchen platform with a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, pizza, pasta – something for everyone !
