We were visiting Farhmeier Vineyard and stumbled into a wine festival that was going on that day. It’s very difficult to take notes in a festival setting because you’re standing in a lot of lines and it’s hard to get a flat surface to write on and hold a glass and anything you purchased all at the same time. You only get to try a few things, too, because other people are waiting. So, here are my surviving notes from the event.
2466 McNeel Rd
Odessa, MO 64076
Lots of great fruit wines and even a jalapeno wine (Tornado Spotter). We wrote down their hours and visited the next day.
Holy Grail Winery
5505 Locust St
Augusta, MO 63332
Rougeon Red – good, dry aftertaste
Norton Sweet – sweet but not worth purchasing
100 Lynn St
Dover, MO 64022
Frontier Lady – sweet white
Cannonball Red – Concord, very smooth
Giovanni – Norton and Chambourcin, sweet with a grapefruit finish
11644 Flournoy School Rd
Wellington, MO 64097
Renegade Red – semisweet, light for a red
Sunday Driver – white Vignoles, Traminette, and Cayuga. Sweet with grapefruit.
Peace Out Peach – David called it “sufficiently sweet to be acceptable” I liked it too.
Strawberry Dreams – tastes like they used the whole strawberry, not as sweet as advertised but decent.
