Missouri wineries, why not turn an afternoon getaway into a weekend
mini-vacation? Missouri wine country is great for winery weekend getaways, offering more than just fantastic vino –
there are plenty of places to dine, to pamper yourself, and to catch up on some
In Washington, Old Vine Riverfront Bistro is a great stop for delicious food, lovely views, and music. Take a
seat inside the bistro, in the upstairs wine bar, or outside on the patio.
Savor sandwiches, soups, pizzas, and salads, while enjoying the ambiance of the
1850s brick building.
Take the winery tour to Hermann, where there is so much to love, from the wineries to the antique shops to the picturesque town itself.

appetizers and pizzas in a gorgeous, restored bank building. Libations include
wine and martinis.
