I love wine. I love local wineries. St. James Winery is located in St. James, Missouri and very close to Rolla. They opened in 1970 and have been growing their establishment ever since. Now they make over 200,000 cases of wine every year! One of our family favorites is Friendship School White. A couple bottles are guaranteed to show up a one of our family gatherings!


Luckily, after working with Jessica from St. James Winery, I was able to schedule a tour of one of their vineyards, production facility and their new Vineyard Cottage which is a venue for private events. It stormed that morning so the sky was dark just until we visited the vineyard. If you look closely you can see the plants were just beginning to flower.
