Celebrate National Pork and Country Ham Month with Missouri Wines

October is National Pork and Country Ham Month. It’s a time set aside to celebrate the pork industry, the time of year when hogs were traditionally marketed. We invite you to raise a glass of Missouri wine paired perfectly with the following pork products in tribute to farmers across the country.

A charcuterie board is another great option for your gathering. You can customize the board based on your preferences and pair these selections with a variety of delicious Missouri wines. Some pairing suggestions include a dry rosé with a country ham. The natural sweetness of Vignoles is the perfect complement to a spicy sausage because sweet cuts the heat.
Gather your family and friends and celebrate with your favorite pork dish and Missouri wine. Salud!
