Spectacular view in Ste. Genevieve County

As we head into Fall, a good way to enjoy the nice weather and take in the scenery is to visit a local winery near you. Many of these places are set on high hills or bluffs which provide spectacular views. This photo was taken for from one of Chaumette Winery’s Chalets overlooking farms surrounding Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

Chaumette Chalets

With Fall just around the corner now is the time to start thinking about heading out to a local winery or an interesting B&B out in the country. This is a photo of the “Chalets” at Chaumette Vineyards and Winery near scenic St. Genevieve, Missouri. Chaumette has it all: winery, restaurant and their beautiful Chalets.

This area actually sits high in the rolling hills in the area. The views are spectacular. My wife ad I spent the night in one of the Chalets and I ventured out early one morning to capture the sunrise.

Drama on the hill

Here is another photo of Chaumette Winery. This was taken on a dreary overcast day. With the help of a three shot HDR process, the clouds became more interesting and some colors seemed to pop out.

Old Barn

Missouri’s St. Genevieve, situated in the rolling hills of the Ozarks, is an old historic town surrounded by scenic countryside. Here is an old barn restored by a local winery.
