I will be there over the Labor Day weekend. $4 for a type wine tasting of 7 different wines. Nice starter, just saying.

Almost all French wine is from Missouri.
"In the mid-19th century, the phylloxera louse destroyed much of the Vitis vinifera grape crop in Europe, especially France. Missouri's state entomologist, Charles Riley, found that American rootstocks were resistant to the pest. He directed sending millions of rootstocks to vineyards around the world., to which their grape varieties could be grafted. This saved the French wine industry as well as others. The city of Montpellier erected statues honoring these events, as well as Riley's scientific colleague J.É. Planchon.["
