Red Moose Vineyards (written Jul 16, 2017)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Located off the beaten path near Salem, Missouri, this lovely log cabin winery has ample seating space, small plate food offerings, and fantastic dry wines. They planted their vines in 2006 and opened to the public a few years ago. Friendly staff with age-worthy wines oaked in local Missouri oak barrels. The Chambourcin and Nortons are particularly nice, and the blends with these grapes will certainly rival blends coming from other small wineries. The winemaker supports local charities with the proceeds from sales of one of the great blends--Fruition, Wine with a Cause is the name. Fabulous setting near the Current River Hills overlooking the vines, and earnest winemakers and staff. A great addition to the St. James region of Missouri. One of the owners intimated that they were in the process of starting a wine trail, which would certainly increase traffic.

Rosewood Winery (written Oct 01, 2016)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
This is a large operation with a great mission. The dry wine list is extensive, and full of very nice vinifera wines. I arrived when the winemaker was just coming off of his tractor for the afternoon so had a nice chat with him about harvest. Sadly, because Kansas is rife with herbicide use, he lost a lot of his grapes from overspray from an adjacent farm. He's persistent and is continuing to grow grapes and make stellar wine.

Fox Fire Farms (written Oct 01, 2016)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
This out of the way (but well signed!) winery specializes in wonderful local varietals. On a random September afternoon I made a trip here before a hard frost and had the fantastic opportunity to talk with the winemaker. The setting of the winery is reminiscent of the Willamette Valley with the rolling hills near Durango and outdoor seating overlooking the vineyard. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and supple wines. I also love hearing that their biggest sellers are the drier wines, hopefully a trend that will continue to grow and result in more dry wine options.

Post Familie Vineyards (written Sep 10, 2016)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Second visit to Post Familie in two years, and was not disappointed. I like that this little winery outpost serves nice lunches but also allows bringing picnic food into the grounds if they're not serving. This is the only winery that produces a wine bottle with a screen printed label that I cannot throw away. The 2012 Chambourcin is fantastic and I have a hard time wanting to drink it because I like the bottle art so much. The Norton isn't that great, but the Chambourcin is really quite nice. Great setting, friendly folks in an otherwise unfriendly landscape.
