About The Vine at Tuscan Hill
A Little History -- Tuscan Hill has served Springfield and Southwest Missouri for a full 11 years in March 2020. We have hosted every imaginable celebration from weddings to executive leadership conferences to nonprofit fundraising to direct sale product parties to women’s retreats to showers, birthdays, anniversaries, retirements and baptisms, and so much more.
A Purpose Shift -- And while we will always serve our local community in all of these ways, we are transitioning and positioning to become known locally, regionally, nationally, and perhaps internationally, as a Conference, Event and Retreat Center. To better describe our shift in primary purpose, we have added depth to our name with just three small words --
“The Vine at Tuscan Hill.”
Inspired by John 15:5, we want “The Vine at Tuscan Hill,” to positively impact not only our local community but to expand its reach to other communities and regions. We want “What happens at The Vine” . . . to have exponential reach to positively impact well beyond the 12 acres here!
We have to expand to fulfill the purpose -- When construction is complete, individuals, businesses, nonprofits and churches will be able to book our 6000 sf Conference, Event and Retreat Center. Tuscan Hill will also bring speakers and musicians to our stage. Those events will be open to the public. The Retreat Center will host multi-day events with lodging for leadership and staff.
New Facilities Detail --
The existing building will house our large commercial kitchen and with that, we will be able to prepare fresh for all events.
A hallway will connect the existing building to a new 6000 sf structure with a mostly open floor plan to accommodate larger events. Within that large structure will be movable partitions to accommodate for smaller business meetings and other gatherings throughout the week. The current 3600 sf concrete tent pad will become the patio to the new 6000 sf structure.
The buildings will be designed to follow the architectural style and design of the home. The grounds will be similarly manicured and landscaped with sidewalks added. We have plans for a vineyard to be planted on the northern facing slope on the front lawn. We have plans for flower gardens for fresh floral arrangements, as well as herb gardens to provide fresh ingredients for our culinary staff.

Tuscan Hill is a gated estate dramatically situated atop twelve quiet, private, rolling acres. Though construction completed in 2006, the distinctive architectural design and decor of the home on Tuscan Hill exudes a timeless Italian/Mediterranean-style ambiance.

The Grounds – As the gate opens, the home on Tuscan Hill becomes more visible at the top of the long, curved lane with a deep forest to the right and a more manicured lawn to the left.
