Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant
Town & Country, MO
We mention Cooper’s Hawk first because of its location, right in the heart of the St. Louis. The wine tasting room and restaurant is open every day of the week, making it a perfect pit-stop along any wine-themed trip starting from “The Lou”. CH sources wines from all over the world, so you don’t be wanting for tasting options. They have a wine for every palette, and we love their expansive selection of sparkling wine & rosé.
Chaumette Vineyards & Winery
Ste. Genevieve, MO
Chaumette Winery is well-known among Missouri wine drinkers, and for good reason. Not only a winery, Chaumette is home to a small village of private villas, pool, spa and award-winning restaurant (we highly recommend the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp). The wine tasting experience at Chaumette is a bit more elevated than some other wineries, making it a good choice as a beginning-of-the-tour stop.
Noboleis offers wine flights, cellar tastings & free winery tours on the first weekend of every month! We love that they are picnic-friendly, yet offer a delicious cafe menu of pizzas and small sharable plates.
Enjoy a scenic tour of Augusta Wine Country with a visit to family owned winery Noboleis!
Balducci is a perfect winery to visit with a group. The winery features an expansive outdoor area and allows guests to bring picnics & snacks to enjoy on-site. They usually have live music on the weekends and are welcoming to larger party buses or groups.
Mount Pleasant Estates
Another one of our favorite August wine trail wineries to visit is Mount Pleasant. Here you can enjoy live music alongside a delicious menu of BBQ. This is another winery that is welcoming to groups, however you may want to make a reservation ahead of time to ensure seating for groups over 10 people.

St. Louis Brewery Tour
BEST Breweries to Visit
Bluewood is one of the newest breweries to open in St. Louis, but already tops our list because of their kitchen collab with Mac's Local Eats and historic location in the former Cherokee Brewery building.
Earthbound specializes in botanical brewing and recently expanded to a new, larger space making it a great destination for party groups. It’s located in the historic Cherokee Street neighborhood, which is filled with shops, restaurants, and art nearby to explore.
Narrow Gauge Brewing Company
This low-key unique brewery is located inside of Italian restaurant classic Cugino’s. Try a beer or two and *trust us*, be sure to order the stuffed meatballs.
Hofbräuhaus is made for groups, with seating for 600 along with a few hundred more on the outside patio. Here you'll find nightly live music, Bavarian fare & imported brews.
4 Hands Brewing
This downtown tasting room has so much to offer including barrel-aged beers & creative food like the brisket poorboy. 4 Hands is family friendly with patio/outdoor seating and if it seems crowded on the main floor, try upstairs.
