Favorite Wine: None, no sweets

This winery was our last stop of the day. They had a nice parking lot and tasting room. But unfortunately this is not the winery for semi-sweet or sweet wine lovers, as they only have dry wine tastings. Maybe only dry wines at all. We did however discover chocolate covered wine grapes which were wonderful. Haven't been able to find them anywhere else yet. Probably only spent less than 10 min. total here.

Favorite Wine: Norton Estates

I really liked the wines here. I gave their Norton Estates 5 stars which is my top rating. Loved it. For full disclosure it was 15% Missouri Cabernet Sauvignon. So for you Norton purists . . . However, it was very good. Very smooth. I kept picking up all sorts of wonderful flavors. What seemed to be the most marked difference was this wine had an additional layer of coffee flavor to it. It even seemed to swish in my glass differently. Perhaps it was the Reidel stemware they were pouring in. Interesting sidenote, we tried this Norton in the regular Reidel glass side-by-side with the Reidel Norton glass. Both tastes were good but the nose and the taste were more complex and enhanced in the Norton glass. I was so impressed with this wine that I didn’t buy any. I came back for a second visit a day later prior to any other current day wine tastings to see if I was overly enthusiastic the day before. Day 2 confirmed that this is a great wine. I did something I have never done before. I joined the Mt. Pleasant Wine Club. This brought the price down significantly as I did purchase this wine after the second tasting. Plus, now I know I will always have some more of this Norton Estates and other MPE wines coming. I liked every one of their reds with the possible exception of their Merlot. But I think it was just overshadowed by the bolder selections side-by-side. On its own I think the Merlot would be fine. What impressed me most about the Cabernet Sauvignon is that it is the first Missouri grown example of this variety that smells and tastes like a Cab. I do not usually like Chardonnays that much, but I really liked the Chardonnay Estates here. Surprised me how much I liked it. We also liked the white Villagio Estates very much. I think our host said it is a blend of three varieties. I can’t remember which ones. Moving on to the winery, grounds, restaurant etc. I think it is all very smartly done. I felt like we were in a park or something. It is a little bit of a stretch I know, but it reminded me of how Disney themes its areas to a great level of detail. Since going to this winery for the first time, I have been fascinated as I further explore the history and influence of this winery on the area and the industry, its various winemakers over the years and the members of the Dressel family which owns the winery.

Favorite Wine: Cab

You can see why they have the highest ratings from the big wine publications. Impressive. The tasting room experience is completely different than the other places. Riedel stemware and Bissenger chocolates. Nice touch. The Cab is out of this world. Word of warning to those looking for super sweet wines or fruit wines, they don't serve them there. They also do not allow outside food or beverages, but the food they serve there is really good. Might turn a cheaper person off, but what they do, they do it well. Dog friendly.

They charge for tastings AND reserved seating. I don't know why anyone goes there. Walk a block to the Augusta Winery and get a free knowledgeable tasting and drink superior wine. You can get better service and better wine at any good restaurant. If you can't bring in your own food, you should be called a restaurant.

They only sell and taste their Mt pleasant wines now. You cannot taste or buy the Ten buck wines. Wines are over-priced and you will spend upwards of $25-$40 per bottle and that is if you buy 4 or more. The wines themselves are very good but not worth the price. The most expensive winery out of 9 I visited in the Augusta- Hermann area. Wants to be California commercial

Favorite Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon

Mt. Pleasant's big commercial enterprise nestled in the hills of the Missouri River Valley doesn't really portray the character of the area. We had to ask to have our glasses rinsed between the Brut and Norton tastings. The Norton was nothing very special, but the Cabernet Sauvignon was really nice. The tasting fee will cover five tastes, so if you only want the dry reds, you can have two big pours of the Cab, which I strongly recommend. My friend bought a semi-dry white that smelled like canned chicken.

Favorite Wine: Tawny Port

Norton Wine Review: Mount Pleasant Winery, stately prominent on a hill in Augusta, MO provided ample parking access and accessibility for an elderly handicapped friend that joined us this day. Immediately a chair was offered to our friend at the tasting bar. They must have liked her smile since we were not asked for the imposed fee associated with this tasting. After being treated to Montelle & Augusta Norton wines a few hours earlier, the MPW Norton did not impress us with any uniqueness. If we had come here first, we might have gobbled up a couple bottles, but as it turned out, we preferred for sheer fun their sparkling "ten bucks" wine (picked up a case to be divided among friends) and their absolute stunning $$ Tawny Port. We enjoyed our introduction to this location by our friend.

The most commercial winery in Augusta. Charge for tasting AND reserved seating. If you can't bring in your own food, then you should call yourself a restaurant.

They shouldn't charge for tasting, but they do. Wines are overpriced. They have a large variety though.
