Since 2013 we have been helping our followers find great wines of great value that are ready to drink right away. Given that we are a California-based wine review business those wines have almost all come from the Sonoma, Napa, Paso Robles, and Santa Ynez wine regions. While we have profiled wines from Oregon, Washington, Arizona, and New York, we have never undertaken an in-depth review of offerings from another state.
In 2001 our senior writer and co-founder drove cross country and happened to pass through the Missouri wine region. Ever since then this region has piqued his interest. This year, we put that interest into action as we launch the Missouri Wine Experience.
We will introduce you to new AVAs, wineries, and varietals and highlight how important this region has been to the wine world at large. We will make recommendations on wines to purchase and, when possible, compare them to their California “taste-alike” companions. In short, we hope to introduce our California followers to new varietals they can enjoy and open the California market to Missouri wines.
