The Midwest of America may seem an unlikely place to find quality wine but you might be surprised. Missouri has rolling hills of vineyards spotted with large ponds & surrounded by trees. Wineries abound in the Midwest & I am all set to explore them.
I joined a few friends at Noboleis Vineyards for a wine sampling & lunch. We snacked on crackers paired with cheese & sausage & shared laughs over a few bottles of wine. After splitting some yummy pizzas, we tried out the hula hoops & giant inflatable soccer balls placed outside for our amusement. I spotted someone living the luxe life at this winery when they dropped in unexpectedly by helicopter & flew back out again after grabbing a few bottles for themselves.
I stopped off at my favorite winery, Les Bourgeois. It’s my favorite for sentimental reasons as it happens to be the one where Greg & I wed. On a perfect fall day, I enjoyed a bottle of Traminette-Vignoles from their Collector’s Series while pouring over my writing. Don’t worry… I managed to look up from my notebook every now & again to enjoy the gorgeous view of the Missouri River just below the bluffs.
The wineries get prettier over the autumn season. I can’t wait to visit more as the leaves start changing colors. What are you looking forward to this Fall? Stop in for a visit on Friday & enjoy some weekly inspiration courtesy of my muse moments.
