Introducing the Meramec River Wine Trail

July 30, 2018

Missouri's newest wine trail is nestled between the beauty of the Ozark Highlands and the picturesque waterways of the Meramec River. The Show-Me State is home to 11 wine trails, each offering a unique vino adventure. There are eight wineries to discover while traveling along the Meramec River Wine Trail, four of which are in St. James – a charming town with a fascinating Italian heritage.

Missouri Wines

Belmont Vineyards in Leasburg is located on Route 66. It's a family business building a tradition of wine, food, music and a place for friends and family to gather. Visitors can enjoy views of the rolling Ozark hills while sipping on delicious, locally crafted wines.

Eagles' Landing in St. James is coupled with the restaurant Just a Taste and spearheaded by two longtime friends. Stop in for a local wine tasting and gourmet bite while on the Meramec River Wine Trail.

Heinrichshaus Vineyards & Winery is located five miles east of St. James and feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of our all-too-busy lives. Take a break and enjoy delicious wine on their sylvan terrace.

Meramec Vineyards in St. James is under new ownership and ready to welcome you to enjoy delicious local wine and share in their passion for the area. 

Peaceful Bend Vineyards in Steeleville suffered a devastating fire in November 2016, but in true Missouri fashion they haven't let that stop them. Newly reopened, they are more ready than ever to show you a fantastic time.

Red Moose Vineyard in Salem is a small winery that takes pride in providing their guests with delicious, hand-crafted wine as well as a beautiful setting in which to enjoy it.

St. James Winery in St. James opened in 1970 and is one of the largest and most awarded wineries in the state. At St. James Winery you can taste a wide range of delicious, award-winning wines, and stop by next door to the Public House Brewery taproom for great Missouri beer too.  

Three Squirrels Winery in St. James is both a winery and an art gallery featuring local wines and art from local and regional artists. Enjoy the view in the gallery and on the covered deck overlooking their vineyards.
