It was a packed house on Saturday midday, but the folks manning the tasting bar ably accommodated my tasting. Excellent wines, all of the dry reds, but I'm not crazy about the California-style atmosphere. Nevertheless, they sure are making great wines...

The setting of the tasting room, restaurant and adjacent vineyards is very attractive. The building is gorgeous. Inside on a Thursday night in August when business was slow, the atmosphere was sort of devoid. The patio was nearly empty as well and the hired musician was sort of singing to himself. Unfortunately, I think this empty atmosphere translated into how we felt about the two wines we tried. Perhaps on a different night our experience would have been different. It was also our last winery of the day so our taste buds were probably tired. That being said, the one glass we had of Chambourcin and the Savage Norton each seemed a little uninspired to us. The Chambourcin was very light. The Norton was okay. But all I could seem to taste was the fruit. None of the fun layers or complexity of the best Nortons we had in the area. It was a mundane middle of the pack albeit in one of Missouri’s finest Norton producing areas. We will have to visit again when we can make this our first or second visit of the day and during a lively weekend. For now, though we were rather unimpressed.

My wife and I had two tastings a bottle of wine and sandwiches. It cost $60. We could have had a great lunch for that. Instead we got two tiny sandwiches and mediocre wine with a great view.

Favorite Wine: Norton 'Savage'
Norton Wine Review: Chandler Hill Vineyards may be the new kid on the block, but what a taste explosion they laid introducing their Norton "Savage" wine. After participating in a dinner tasting of six notable Missouri Nortons at St. Louis' 2008 Norton Wine Festival, this came out an overall first at our table from publicly available selections. This is an interesting winery that is proud of its historic surroundings. An easy place to relax with good wines and a restaurant that can provide soup, salads, & sandwiches.
