Montelle Winery

History: The winery was founded in 1970 by Clayton Byers, an early revivalist of Missouri’s wine industry after Prohibition. Today it’s owned by Tony Kooyumjian, also of Augusta Winery.

Must-Try Wines: 2016 Seyval Blanc, 2014 Norton and 2015 Chardonel

Highlights: Montelle’s priorities include pairing wine with food, and its Klondike Café serves food designed to complement its wines. Enjoy it all on the scenic deck, which is nestled into the forest’s edge and offers views of the Missouri River Valley. Don’t miss the sunset dinner series on Friday and Saturday evenings, from May through September.
