In the heart of Missouri wine country, another winery has opened its doors. From now until December 31st (except for Christmas Day), the St. Jordan Creek Winery at 2829 U.S. Hwy. 50 in Beaufort will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.                             

From 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 3rd, come and enjoy free tasting and food pairings as the winery holds its Winter Wine Party. Their newest wine, "Snowy Knight", will be released at this gathering.

Along with another new release, "Vineyard Ambrosia", "Snowy Knight" is made from the sweet vignoles grape and is perfect with light desserts or fresh fruit. A sweet Norton port called "1919" will also soon be released, just in time for the holidays. This wine is great with stews, beef and other hearty dishes.

St. Jordan Creek Winery has a wine shop where you can purchase any or all of their signature wines including the new releases, bottled water, soft drinks and beer, and munchies such as cheese and crackers. For those desiring to take home a souvenir of their visit to the winery, there are shirts and glasses featuring the winery logo.

If the weather stays nice or you come back in the warmer months, the winery also has a wine garden, where visitors can bring their own picnic lunch and enjoy it with wines purchased in the wine shop.

The St. Jordan Creek Winery is owned and operated by a 6th generation family of Bavarian agriculturalists, calling Franklin County home since 1845. They are also the ones who named the local creek after St. Jordan, who was born in Saxony (now Germany) in 1190 and converted many to Christianity.

If you're looking for a fun escape for a few hours this weekend, take a ride out to the St. Jordan Creek Winery and have a taste of what they have to offer. If you're desiring to move to this great area, or if you're already here and need help buying or selling a home, I can help! Please contact me, Scott Hickinbotham, at 636-629-3419 or online. Let's make St. Clair a great place to call home.
