The Wineries of the Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail are hosting the Taste of the Holidays tour, bringing together the food, wine, and spirit of the holiday season. This two-day event will include fine wines paired with unique holiday treats in the sophisticated yet homey atmosphere of the venues.
You can warm up at The Hemman Winery with some Harvest Pumpkin soup, and cranberry pork tenderloin. At the Hunter Valley Winery they’re keeping it traditional with Chicken Dumplings and Apple crisp. If you want an early taste of Thanksgiving The Barrens Winery is serving a smoked turkey breast and a cranberry salad. Finally Apple Creek Vineyard is taking a different turn with some kettle beef and pumpkin cake. Enjoy it all with award-winning cranberry wine made right here in Missouri.
Besides food the event will include a photo contest with Cheers the wine elf, and special tickets for designated drivers. Get the season started on the beautiful Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail, and enjoy the food, drink, and decorations these unique wineries have to offer. This is an all-weekend event, November 8 and 9. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or on the event website.
