Wine plays a large role in Missouri’s cultural history. Beginning in the 19th century, German and French immigrants planted vines to make wine for personal sipping and many wineries sprung up in the Missouri River valley. Prohibition nearly wiped the industry out, but today there are almost 130 wineries in the state. Each winery approaches winemaking from a unique, personal perspective and today we will visit three very distinct wineries, each with its own style and story to tell. Wine is a key ingredient in many dishes and so back in the kitchen, host Cat Neville makes spatchcocked chicken with white wine and herbs.
