Founded in the 1970's By Jim and Patricia Hofherr, St. James Winery is named for the city it was founded in: St. James, Missouri, an area known for concord grapes and a rich Italian heritage. Jim Hofherr worked for a number of wineries before ultimately deciding with his wife to found his own winery. It is Now run by the second generation of Hofherrs, John and Andrew, following the death of their father Jim in 1994. Prior to this change, John Hofherr trained as a winemaker in Fresno, California, while Andrew Hofherr studied viticulture at the University of Arkansas. The two have since worked to improve the variety, quality, and efficiency of their winery, and have won a number of awards. They currently maintain vineyards in Missouri, Arkansas, and Michigan, bringing their total acreage to 500 and their grape varieties to 15. – Description from NekotoNikku

  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

  • I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best.

  • I’m part Irish, but I’m not sure how much. I’m not Catholic and my surname is decidedly English.

On top of that, my grandmother plays about a dozen instruments and has often gone to Ireland to... Read More

  • The next time you visit Barcelona, Spain, get yourself into the mountainous vineyard regions of Priorat and Montsant, just a short drive from this beautiful Mediterranean city. “Which region is which?” This may sound crazy but think of the regions as a fried egg!
