Celebrating Missouri Wine Month
September 03, 2019
Harvest, festivals and special events… it must be Missouri Wine Month!
September is a very special month in Missouri. The weather is great and there is so much to do to celebrate Missouri Wine Month. We also enjoy using this time to showcase the amazing impact Missouri wines have on the economy.
According to our 2017 study, the local wine industry is consistently on the rise in so many ways. The annual economic impact of wine and grapes on the state is $3.2 billion (that’s a $1.4 billion dollar increase from 2015). The industry supports more than 28,000 full-time jobs and sells 1.16 million gallons of wine every year. With 1,700 acres of grapes and 425 growers, harvest is a very exciting time in the vineyards of Missouri. Winemakers and vineyard managers work tirelessly to produce an amazing product for their consumers, and they will all tell you that it’s, without a doubt, worth the work.
The 2019 Missouri Wine Competition winners were announced recently. You’ll definitely want to try these truly spectacular wines before they’re gone!
We invite you to celebrate Missouri Wine Month by attending fabulous events offered by our wonderful wineries and wine trails.
