The first winemakers, primarily German immigrants, arrived in Missouri’s fertile river valley in the 1830s. By the 1880s, Missouri wineries produced over 2 million gallons of wine per year. In conjunction with the exhibition "Deeply Rooted," we are celebrating our winemaking heritage in style. Dr. Dean Volenberg, director of the MU Grape and Wine Institute, will present an overview of the history and current state of the wine industry in Missouri. Wine from Jefferson City area wineries will be provided for tasting. Appetizers by Bar Vino, Jefferson City, are sponsored by Friends of the Missouri State Museum.
