Canterbury Hill Winery & Restaurant in Holts Summit

History: D.J. Drury reopened the former Summit Lake Winery as the Canterbury Hill Winery in 2013. Now it’s a medieval-themed locale that promises guests the royal treatment.

Must-Try Wines: Blue Mist sweet white and King’s Choice semisweet

Highlights: The winery plays up its medieval theme with castle-inspired décor and wines with names such as Excalibur and Medieval Mist. Canterbury’s famous Red Dragon and Blue Dragon wine slushies grant cool relief on hot summer days. The tasting room and dining room share the same space, so ordering food is a breeze. Options range from snacks, sandwiches and burgers to steaks and seafood, including pork belly nachos and king crab legs. An outdoor patio offers sprawling views of the state Capitol and Missouri River.
