Missouri wine refers to wine made from grapes grown in Missouri. German immigrants in the early-to-mid-19th century founded the wine industry in Missouri, resulting in its wine corridor being called the Missouri “Rhineland”. Later Italian immigrants also entered wine production. In the mid-1880s, more wine was produced by volume in Missouri than in any other state.
Ste. Genevieve, Missouri is now developing its wineries with great wines, food and views. One of my favorites is Chaumette, with a first rate reastarant, a nice wine selection and a spectacular view of the ozark rolling hills. Lunch out on their deck cannot be beat. The above photo is from my table on the deck.
