View Missouri Wine Country map

Missouri has long been noted for its wines as far back as the Civil War. The small town of Augusta boasts the first recognized wine district in the United States. Augusta, just 30 minutes west of St. Louis, joins Defiance, Dutzow, Washington and Hermann as the small-town gems of Missouri Wine Country, a scenic 50-mile swath straddling the Missouri River.

Wineries along the picturesque Missouri Weinstrasse (wine road) remain top producers. But they also attract tourists, who enjoy sampling locally-manufactured vintages, touring wineries, strolling through historic districts and browsing at boutiques, antique shops and craft fairs.

Augusta's newest winery is family-owned Noboleis Vineyards. Enjoy lunch, wine and rolling vineyards, while listening to live music every Saturday and Sunday through August (www.noboleisvineyards.com).

Hermann, nestled along the banks of the Missouri River, is also known for its prize-winning wineries. However, the town, established in 1837 as a German Society settlement, is also a magnet for history lovers. Over 150 buildings in and around downtown are on the National Register of Historic Places.
