There are several wineries in Cape Girardeau County and surrounding areas, let me just mention a few: Steele Crest Winery and Apple Creek Winery plus Ludwig Farm Wines. If you are interested in viewing local wineries, but would rather someone else do the driving, then let  me introduce to you Vines to Wines.  They make it possible for you to experience the uniqueness by exploring actual vinyards, wineries, and the people who work in the exiciting art of “making wine”.
