Augusta Winery Medals Again

Of course Augusta won multiple medals at the annual Missouri Wine Competition! They produce seriously fantastic wine, and I'm glad their 09 Norton Reserva del Patron took gold even if it means I have to buy a case in the coming days because it will likely be snatched up very soon...

From today's newsletter:

Bringing home Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals AND the Best of Class Dry White for our Estate Bottled Dry Vignoles we are speechless.. this must be what Michael Phelps feels like.. all of the time. It's all thanks to our customers for continuing to show their love and support and for continuing to bring your thirsty palates to the First Accepted AVA in the US, Viticultural Area #1, Appellation of Origin. Whatever you want to call it, it's because of you our winemaker/owner continues to produce excellent quality, estate bottled wines that are true to the terroir for year-round enjoyment.

We have an extremely limited availability on the 2012 Best of Class Dry White winning Estate Bottled Dry Vignoles. With such limited number of cases left we normally wouldn't sample this wine in the tasting room but to celebrate the Win we are opening up some bottles to share Saturday 8/11 - Sunday 8/12. After sampling we know you'll want to stock up before it's gone but we want to share it with as many of you as possible so we're limiting purchases to one case per customer. Our moms taught us to share so we're forcing that learnin' on you, sorry!


If you can't make it out this weekend you'll still be able to sample our gold, silver, and bronze medal winners (as seen below) until they're sold out but due to availability we had to restrict samples on the Dry Vignoles to one weekend.

We love Missouri's sweets! Ice Wine!! Stonehill's Catawba and Hermannhof's Vignole and StagsWood Red. We haven't been to Augusta for a bit, might be the time to go with this beautiful weather this weekend! Or stay close to home and hit Summit Lake Winery for a bottle, or two, of Kingdom Bluff! Wenwood Farm Winery in Bland makes a wonderful Ice Wine. I think I remember you doing a post where you mentioned Wenwood Farms. Know you love the drier wines :) Enjoy your posts on the wineries and wine of Missouri!

I think it's great that you like the sweet wines in Missouri because it means that Missouri wineries have something for everyone! I was really bummed to see Native Stone closed this year, and that Twisted Vine is only open for appointment. I love the Hwy 50 wineries in Osage County. Have you been to Westphalia and Serenity Valley in Fulton? They also make sweet wines. Wenwood is charming, I just adore the place. New passport program starting on Jan.1!
