Favorite Wine: Reisling and Moscato

I thought this was a very nice winery. The staff were very helpful. There were LOTS of varieties of wine! I liked the could spend time shopping, but also wine tasting. I really enjoyed my visit and the staff were very helpful!

Favorite Wine: Cynthiana

I agree with the Norton Travelers here. I just saw this winery off the side of the road while doing our "Norton tour" in Missouri and Arkansas and I'm really glad I stopped. Their "serve yourself" style is actually quite refreshing, a go at your own pace type deal, and you can sample everything for free. The wines are very reasonably priced. Their Cynthiana is made lighter than their Norton and is very nice after tasting all of the heavy Missouri Nortons. I particularly liked their Chambourcin as well. Highly recommended!

Favorite Wine: Louis (Podium Series)

I still don’t like the plastic thimbles at the self-serve bar. Thimbles might work for tasting sweet wines but they are useless for tasting anything dry. Very frustrating. We learned today they have a new series of dry whites and reds called the Podium Series. More on those later. First up is what I will call the regular series of dry reds. The 2006 Norton was more complex than the 2008. The younger wine was still a little harsh and pepper was really the only flavor I could pick up. Their Cynthiana was okay but otherwise unremarkable to us. After discussing these with us, our hostess pointed out that they have a newer series of just dry reds and whites: The Podium Series. We tried their “Louis” which is a 2008 Chambourcin. It was in an entirely different league than their other Chambourcin and Nortons/Cynthianas. Much more complex and robust. One of the best things about the podium series is that for $5 you get to sample them from an actual wine glass. The Louis is the first dry from St. James that I can really say I like. We left with a couple of the Louis, a 2006 Norton and two bottles of their Cherry Wine. We really like it but don’t really think of it as wine. We think of it as Cherry Cider that has a nice alcohol bite in a smooth package.

Favorite Wine: 08 Norton

The 08 St. James Norton is widely available in stores throughout Missouri, and it remains my most often consumed Norton these days. The winery is located on I-44, and the tasting room is large enough to accomodate even a tour bus. They have done a wonderful job of marketing local wine in Missouri, and while they probably sell more of their sweet wines, their dry reds and whites are terrific and a good bargain. In the fall, they make a blend reminiscent of a Beaujolais, called St. James Nouveau.

Norton Wine Review: St. James Winery has a similar mission as Virginia’s Horton Winery in that they want to educate and introduce to its public good, affordable wines. Don't let these affordable $6 prices dissuade you into thinking that these are only "cheaper" wines. On the contrary, their $10 middle priced Norton and sometimes available $15ish “Reserve” Norton wines are bargain value wines and stand up well to the best-that-Missouri has to offer. It's amazing the friendliness of these people in such a large wine production facility. While here, try any and everything they offer, - you will be most surprised with the endeavors they make to pleasantly please you.
