The Missouri caves where you can drink wine


ST. LOUIS– Missouri’s wine country is a popular destination for many as the weather starts to warm up. But did you know there are some wineries where the temperature stays the same all year because you can drink in a cave.

There are 7 wine regions in Missouri and three of them have caves. Here is a list of them:

Cave Vineyard & Distillery:

The Cave Vineyard is in Ste. Genevieve and offers its locally crafted wine, beer, spirits, and biscotti. Guests can grab a bottle and two and head down to the saltpeter cave underneath the winery and tasting room. The cave can seat about 100 people and guests are also welcome to bring their own picnic.

Cave Hollow West Winery:

The Cave Hollow West Winery is in Hannibal and its tasting room is within Cave Hollow. Mark Twain wrote about the cave in five of his books, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. It’s between Mark Twain Cave and Cameron Cave. The tasting room opened in 2012.

Fence Stile Vineyards & Winery:

The Fence Stile Vineyards & Winery is located in Excelsior Springs near Kansas City. It’s the only winery in the region with a wine cave. The wine caves were built into the winery during construction. The winery offers a wine cave tour and tasting by candlelight. T

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
