Missouri wine country is calling. Are you listening? It’s a great time to take a trip to visit new wineries and long-time favorites. When you’re planning your next excursion to wine country, consider taking the train as a fun addition to your adventure.

 

Amtrak’s Missouri River Runner travels from Kansas City to St. Louis daily with many exciting stops along the way. With more than 125 wineries in the state, there are lots of options for fun-filled trips on the train. The Missouri River Runner stops at these stations four times a day, 2 eastbound and 2 westbound:

Kansas City, MO (KCY) Jefferson City, MO (JEF)
Independence, MO (IDP) Hermann, MO (HEM)
Lee’s Summit, MO (LEE) Washington, MO (WAH)
Warrensburg, MO (WAR) Kirkwood, MO (KWD)
Sedalia, MO (SED) St. Louis, MO (STL)

Once you’ve arrived at your desired destination, you’re ready for the next stage of your adventure… walking, biking, shuttles, trolleys… whichever you prefer, you’re sure to have a good time. Each area offers its own unique combination of wineries, restaurants, shops, and more.

At missouriwine.org you’ll find a listing and interactive map of all the wineries in Missouri. You’ll find the largest concentrations of wineries near the Kansas City, Hermann, and Washington stops. Contact their local CVBs or Chambers for expert and up to date recommendations on must-see attractions and the best ways to get around once your train has arrived.

Missouri wine pairs well with taking the train!
