Wine industry began in Missouri in the 1840s when an influx of German immigrants, inspired by the enthusiastic findings of writer Gottfried Duden, relocated there They eventually founded the town of Hermann, and the state’s first commercial winery, Stone Hill. The success of these wines, most notably The Black Pearl, Hermannsberger, and Starkenberger sold in St. Louis and other large cities, and inspired others to follow. The transcontinental railroads gave a further boost to the wine industry, although it also allowed California wines made from Europeam varietals to prosper. Because European varietals didn’t grow well in the Missouri climate, the most successful wines were produced from French-American hybrids and natives such as Norton. But their popularity kept Missouri the second most popular American wine source leading up to the Prohibition.

  • Sainte Genevieve Winery Vidal NV

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is somewhat unapproachable, and may be enjoyed best with a meal (chicken, spicy food). It has a beautiful golden color and a very fruity nose with hints of honey, melon and pear that carried over into the palate. Unfortunate, the fruity flavors were overpowered with a lingering tart acidity and excess alcohol. Read More

  • Strussione Cave Rock Red Missouri Sweet Red NV

    Snoothrank:

    The wine has a deep ruby color and moderate and youthful notes of cherries. The palate is sweet and dominated by flavors of marzipan and fresh grapes with low acid and tannins. The wine seems well balanced with a slight excess of sweetness. The wine would serve well with desert. Read More

  • Chardonel Dry Strussione Missouri Dry White NV

    Snoothrank:

    The Chardonel has a distinct and medium nose of citrus fruits and marcipan and seems youthful and bright. The wine is dry and medium-bodied with crisp acidity and medium round tannins and a pleasant buttery finish. The wine is somewhat overpowered by strong alcohol and acid. Read More

  • Strussione Norton Missouri Dry Red 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I am not a fan of the Norton grape, however this wine is more fruity (red berries) and bright than most Norton wines, I have tried. The palate is dominated by dark berry flavors, oak and medium dry tannins. However, as with most Norton wine, I have tried, it seems unbalanced with overpowering alcohol and acid. That being said, the wine may benef... Read More

  • Strussione Cave Rock Off Dry NV

    Snoothrank:

    Light youthful floral aromas with a light semi-dry and crisp palate with a medium spicy finish. The wine seems disjointed (alcohol) and may benefit from decanting, which could let it open up slightly. Read More

  • Crown Valley Cabernet Sauvignon NV

    Snoothrank:

    The wine has a beautiful garnet color with a bright and very fruity aroma of cassis and strawberry jam that carries over into the palate. The tannins are high and soft, which leaves a long and smooth finish with flavors of spice and a distinct chalkiness. The wine seems slightly unbalanced with overpowering alcohol and tannins.

  • Crown Vally Frontenac NV

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has a deep brown color with notes of sweet plum jam and oak. The palate was surprising and very different from the nose, in that the flavors were dominated with distinct sour acidity and very strong tobacco flavors that left a long spicy and even smoky finish. This wine is different and unlike any other wine I have tasted. Read More
