••• Don't forget Nebraska when exploring Midwest wine. Marcia Frost

It’s surprising to note that the oldest continuously owned and operated winery in the country is not in the more well-known California wine regions, but in Missouri. That winery is Adam Puchta Winery in Hermann and it is one of more than 120 wineries in the state.

In 1984, the Missouri Wine and Grape Board was established to support the wineries, which is now a billion-dollar business. Eight distinct trails link these vineyards.

You can learn more about the wines of Missouri, from their official website.
