Hey all,

Every year my partner and I take his mom to a winery for her birthday. We go in mid October. I'm writing because I wanted to get some ideas as to which one we should go to this year. Places we've been already are Augusta, MO.. to Montelle, and Sugar Creek Winery. Thats it, i'm thinking about looking into Hermann, or another one in Augusta.

I have a passion for views, as does my Mother-in-Law so that's mostly what we're lookin for. Anybody know of any wineries with beautiful views.. within and hour and half driving distance..?

So far Montelle had a better View than SugarCreek. Thanks for all your help

Montelle does have one of the best views. Mount Pleasant in Augusta also has a great view, but has been expanding over the years and is now huge and popular. Balducci and Blumenhof, a little past Augusta, are smaller and are favorites of ours for the wines. The views are nice, but not as grand and sweeping as that of Montelle.

I agree that Montelle's views are hard to beat -- sweeping and beautiful. I think Mount Pleasant is certainly worth visiting as well.

The wineries I've been to in Herman don't have nearly as lovely views (though perhaps I haven't been to the right ones) and for all that is good in this world stay away from Les Bourgeois in Rocheport. The views are OK, but that Riverboat Red they sell, I'm convinced, isn't real wine

There's one up in Grafton, IL on the bluffs....Aerie Winery, maybe? I haven't been there yet, but the drive is top notch and the fish is great up there! And there's a couple of wineries in the area also.

If you're going to Hermann and want a good view go to Oak Glenn Winery, which is about a mile east of town, north of Highway 100. Great river/bottomland views from high on the bluff.

The best overall experience would probably be Stone Hill Winery in town. Fantastic tour, and nice sampling when it all over. Not a terrible view of the town either. Some of the best wines in the region as well.

If I recall correctly, the place in Grafton isn't a winery, but a wine bar. I could be wrong and it has been a while...
Either way, it does have a fantastic view.
Thanks

Stone Hill also has an EXCELLENT German food restaurant. I highly recommend it....we go there 2-3 times a year.
