Description: Winding through the swelling hills of Southeast Missouri, the Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail passes through some of the state’s most attractive countryside - fields and pastureland and stately stands of timber. Along the trail are four wineries, alike in that they all are family owned and operated, but each with its unique appeal and offering a diversity of wines from dry and semi-dry to sweet and fruity. There’s something for everyone! Three wineries have combined to offer this Taste of Romance event that takes celebrates wine and chocolate. Enjoy fine wine perfectly paired with a special food pairing at each of the three wineries on the Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail. A souvenir wine glass is included with ticket purchase. Wineries participating are the Barrens Winery, Apple Creek Vineyard & Winery, and Herman Winery.

Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail is Missouri’s eighth and newest wine trail, established in 2012. It stretches 40 miles, from the center of Perry County southward through northern Cape Girardeau County. While there is beautiful scenery to behold, the trail has easy access to U.S. Interstate 55 and U.S. Highway 61 and is only 75 miles south of St. Louis and less than 10 miles north of Cape Girardeau..

Tickets required and are available at each of the wineries or online
