Missouri is home to 11 wine trails, each offering a unique vino adventure. The state’s newest wine trail is nestled between the scenic Ozark Highlands and the picturesque waterways of the Meramec River.  Eight wineries are located along the Meramec River Wine Trail, four of which are in St. James – a charming town with a fascinating Italian heritage.

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 locally crafted wines.

Eagles’ Landing Winery 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 bites.

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

Meramec Vineyards
in St. James is ready to welcome you to sample some wine and share in their passion for the area.

Peaceful Bend Vineyards
in Steeleville suffered a devastating fire several years ago, but in true Missouri fashion they haven’t let that stop them. They have reopened and are ready to show you a fantastic time.

Red Moose Vineyard in Salem is a small winery that takes pride in providing their guests with hand-crafted wine in a beautiful setting.

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 array of wine and stop next door at the Public House Brewery taproom for great Missouri beer, too.
