Missouri is one of the oldest wine making areas in the USA. More than 150 years ago, European settlers were making exceptional wine right here in Missouri. Turns out, the history of Missouri wine is as rich as the land it comes from. Missouri’s climate, with its long, hot summers, good sun exposure, and thin rocky Ozarks soil, is excellent for growing grapes. The moderate average temperature allows natural cellaring of wine.
There are many wineries in southern Missouri and Branson presently hosts four locations. A visit to one or more of these wineries is a great way to experience the vintners art. Wineries tours include tasting rooms, art galleries, hands-on bottling experiences, panoramic scenery, and a chance to experience true Ozark hospitality.
