Missouri's Not-to-Miss Wine Country

October 01, 2018

If you like to try new things and tantalize your taste buds then we recommend you take a tour of Branson’s wineries. Treat yourself to a daily complimentary tasting at Bear Creek Wine Company. Sample vintages such as Bear’s Breath, Hillbilly Persuasion and Back-Forty—made of what’s considered the “Missouri Grape.” On Saturdays and Sundays enjoy live local music while you sip. Since 1859, Mount Pleasant Estates has grown the grapes and corked the bottles of their internationally recognized trademark wines. Try their Merlot Augusta. The wine—which has notes of baked berry, licorice, coconut cream, and eucalyptus aromas—has a rating of 92 points and took Gold at the World Wine Championships. If you love the taste of Missouri’s grape, join a local wine club through Lindwedel Winery. With wine shipped to your door and discounts in store and online, it’s the perfect way to remember Branson and a souvenir that will keep on giving!
