Favorite Wine: Chambourcin Reserve
Holy cow, I can't believe that the place I visited today elicited responses such as the two below. West Winery is located in the charming downtown of Macon in a beautifully refurbished building. We arrived when they were bottling something so the wonderful aromas of a working winery wafted through the place. The owner's wife was the barista today, a beautiful, charming woman who walked us through the dry reds giving us all the good details that make a winery visit worth the trip. Terrific dry reds, all of them, and their Chambourcin really nails it--act fast for the Reserve bottling, they're on their last case of it. Heavy on the oak and a big fruit forward nose, a super smooth finish. They offer three Chambourcins and three vintages of Norton--the 08 Norton is extremely nice, and the 10 is tight now, but to be expected with only two years in the bottle. Customer service is a primary driver here, with good, personable staff and terrific wine. We'll be back here and I look forward to opening the fancy reserve Chambourcin with special people I care about. Very nice dry wines and a good adventurous dry apple wine made with Arkansas Blacks. Certainly worth the hour drive from Columbia!

Excellent dry reds. The winemaker/owner gave us a personal tour of the cellar and provided help with our own winemaking. We were wary of stopping due to the two reviews, but our experience was opposite of the two above. We were told there were staffing changes a year or so ago; perhaps that's the reason. Definitely worth the drive from St. Louis.

We drove down from Iowa expecting a wonderful experience. The building is an amazing old building. The wine was terrible. The owners were indifferent and not helpful. The gentleman was witnessed being quite verbally loud to a customer who appeared to be respectful. Terrible customer service, wine not authentic. Disappointed we drove 5 hours for this place.

My First thought was wow this is going to be a good place with a building like that. My Wife & I enjoyed the ride down and that's about it. We got there and it was like a bar. Wine not the best and the workers could not explain much about wine.
