Wineries of Ste. Genevieve

 Our trip include 2 of the local wineries: Chaumette and Crown Valley.

 the view from Chaumette patio, it would be great to sit here in the summer and have wine and cheese
 St. Vincents in the Vineyard, a little Episcopal chapel at Chaumette removed from a retreat center in St. Louis and rebuild at the winery.
 Inside St. Vincents, after service the congregation walks down the hill to have lunch at the winery.
 The Crown valley vineyards. We had a wine flight tasting of 5 different wines of our choice.

My pick was the Vignoles, a light and fresh palate with tropical fruit flavors and a long, clean, slightly sweet finish. (description off the tasting list) along with a glass from the winery. Will save this for a special occasion, since its cost was more than I would ever spend on a bottle of wine.
