Did you have a chance to tune in to the three-part Feast Virtual Vine series? Participants swirled, sniffed and sipped their way through award-winning Missouri varietals along with expert hosts and Missouri winemakers themselves. In November 2020, wine lovers learned about the versatile Chambourcin varietal. For the second installment of the series, viewers learned about Missouri’s state grape, Norton, during Norton Month in January 2021. The Virtual Vine series wrapped in April 2021 with a focus on Vignoles as a unique varietal with unlimited potential. Want to relive these evenings of education and enjoyment? Follow the links to find recordings for the Virtual Vine installments of Chambourcin, Norton (featuring Stone Hill Winery, Augusta Winery, Les Bourgeois Vineyards and St. James Winery) and Vignoles – they’re a perfect addition to your National Wine Day festivities.
No matter how you choose to celebrate National Wine Day, we hope you include award-winning Missouri wines in your plans. Cheers!
