Memorial Day with Missouri Wines

See Photo Location

Memorial Day is meant to be a day of remembrance and appreciation. Friends and family gather together on this long weekend to celebrate our freedom and say thank you to those who’ve made it possible for us to do so. Let’s raise a glass!

This fun weekend also signifies the unofficial start of summer. Here are some suggestions for making your Memorial Day celebrations memorable… with Missouri wines, of course!

There are more than 130 wineries in this great state of ours and many of them are hosting special events for the weekend. A Missouri winery is a great place to spend this weekend. Fresh air, a glass of wine, a great view, and good company… it’s hard to ask for more. Grab your friends and family and head out to Missouri wine country!

Missourians have a clear fondness for grilling-out. Check out this great guide to help you pair your favorites from the grill with a glass of award-winning, local vino.


Sangria is one of the best things about summer. Try this red, white and blue sangria recipe or use this guide to build your own.

However and wherever you spend your Memorial Day weekend, bring Missouri wines along for the fun!
