For Tomorrow Is Another Chardonnay

Missouri has many wineries (more than 100) and now there is more incentive to visit them!  The Missouri Wine & Grape Board has launched a winery passport and tasting journal program.  Pick up your free passport at one of the wineries and start collecting stamps (no purchase necessary).  You have to log on to http://www.missouriwine.org/ and sign up to get credit for your visits.  Check out 4 different wineries for the first reward - a bar towel.  There are many levels and things you can earn - wine opener, neoprene carrier, apron, food and wine pairing, dinners and even a winery weekend getaway!   We know you are going to visit the wineries anyway...why not get a little something extra?!   We visited 2 in Branson: Stone Hill tasting room and Mt. Pleasant.  We enjoyed the Jacquesse Kick'n White $7.99 and Dry Vignoles $15.99 at Stone Hill.  The Vidal-Chardonnay was on special at Mt Pleasant for $8.99 so of course we had to buy some!  Next on our list will be our local Summit Lake Winery in Holts Summit and then Les Bourgeois in Rocheport or Seven Springs at the Lake of the Ozarks.  Anyone want to join us for some wine this summer?
