Favorite Wine: Estate Norton
Their estate Norton is one of the best Norton's I've had, in my mind quite worth the price (35-40 dollars or so). Their regular Norton is very well made also and I enjoyed it. They try and make a Cab Sav in Missouri and it's not very good. Give it up and plant Norton - it's your state's grape! The service was also very well and you can by wine by the glass, but there isn't really any lounge area there so I don't know why you would want to. This is one of the better things to do in Branson.

Someone once told me that wine is a very personal experience. No wine will taste the same to two different individuals. I don't care much for very dry wines, but I don't look down on people that prefer them. My wine adventure started with sweets and has evolved from there. I once went to a winery that served only dry (they called them "traditional") wines, and while it wasn't a miserable experience, we probably won't visit again, and I doubt I would buy their wines in the store. A smart winery tries to market to as many people as it can, and to ignore the sweet wine drinkers is counterproductive because it excludes a substantial number of the wine drinking public. Mount Pleasant is a commercial winery, but opening a winery in Branson is a good way to market their product to a clientelle that maybe hasn't tried it before. It isn't very sophisticated, but hey....we're talking Branson. There was a decent selection of dry to sweet whites and reds ranging from $7 to $40. If you're in Branson and maybe want to try something different, this winery is worth a visit.

My first visit to Mt. Pleasant Augusta was met with a whole mess of sweet wines with silly labels that I was clearly not interested in buying or even tasting. As part of the Missouri Passport Program, we stopped into the Branson outpost where the barista told us that they no longer sell sweet wine in Augusta, but it's the bread and butter in Branson. Surrounded by visitors wanting to taste "sweet wines only", I felt a little like an outsider asking only for a taste of the Norton and the Claret. The Claret is nice, simple,nothing great. I appreciated the barista so much that I picked up a Norton Reserve even though it was thin --maybe it will age well?

Favorite Wine: 2006 Estate Norton
Norton Wine Review: Two years ago we had a hard time rationalizing purchases at Mt. Pleasant Winery in Augusta, MO. Their Estate Norton was overpriced compared to quality Norton wines which could be found in nearby wineries. We settled on a case of “Ten Bucks” (bucks as in deer) sparkling wine as Christmas gifts and a couple expensive, yet good Tawny Ports. This year we were confronted in Branson, MO with Mt. Pleasant Winery’s 2006 Estate Norton wine, and in spite of the high end price, it was hard to turn down after tasting this complex wine which had been aged in Missouri white oak for two years. We will put these bottles away for a few more years. The Branson, MO store is a beautiful new facility with a strikingly high center ceiling. Close to the Stone Hill Winery store, but a bit of a trick to find across the street, down the hill and around a curve. The effort to find this store front is worth the effort. On a further Norton note, be aware that we found a grocery shelf Mt. Pleasant Winery Norton for only $9.00. We couldn’t turn this down, but please you don’t make the same mistake. How could Mt. Pleasant Winery put their name on something this bad? After only a small sample glass, we instinctively poured the remaining contents of the bottle down the drain.
