It’s hard to imagine a more exciting time in Show Me wine country than harvest. Tons (literally, so many tons) of beautiful grapes are picked from the vine and start their journey to your glass. Harvest looks a little different at each winery. Some wineries kick it old school with traditional equipment, while others employ all the latest technology. If you’re interested in seeing how the delicious wine in your glass comes to be, now is the time to get out to local wineries.
