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

Vineyards

Augusta, MO

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 Vineyards

Augusta, MO

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

Augusta, MO

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.

Other great St. Louis-area wineries include:

  • Montelle Winery
