Gasconade County is a county located in east central Missouri in the United States. The county is located on the south side of the Missouri River, which once served as the chief route of transportation in the state. It is located in the area known as the Missouri Rhineland. As of the 2010 census, the population was 15,222. The county seat is Hermann. The county was named after the Gasconade River. Some of the land on the eastern border of the county is considered to be part of the rural exurbs of the Greater Saint Louis Metropolitan Area.

Because of its distinctive conditions, the Hermann area was designated an American Viticultural Area (AVA) in 1983. The southern part of the county is within the larger Ozark Highlands AVA, established in 1987.
