Meet The Board
The Missouri Wine and Grape Board (MWGB) is funded by a twelve cents-per-gallon tax on wine sales. We coordinate our marketing and public relations activities with wholesalers, restaurant operators, retailers, and the public. Our goals are to strengthen interest in, and patronage of, our state’s grape, grape juice, and wine industry. We also underwrite the Grape and Wine Institute at the University of Missouri – Columbia in its work with winemakers and grape growers developing grape varieties suitable for Missouri.
