  • Copia Restaurant & Wine Garden
    The modern flourishes on Copia's menu are globally-inspired but grounded by an American culinary tradition. Brought to you by chef Zach Fiorimondo and property director Derrick Collquett, dishes such as chilies and champagne-goat-cheese cream take off from Midwestern classics, such as slow-roasted rotisserie chicken, house-smoked trout, and pork-rib chops. Aided by a wine market whose bottles pour into the dining room at retail price, the downtown eatery aims to shuttle city dwellers directly into wine country with 18,000 square feet of exposed brick walls, wood-beam ceilings, and white tablecloths. Elsewhere within the rambling complex, natural light pours into an atrium garden, a glass waterfall neatly partitions off the bar to prevent diners from impulsively ordering every dish and drink they see, and stainless-steel vats age several of Copia's own wines. Much missed after a fire shuttered its initial incarnation, Copia was roundly welcomed back onto the St. Louis scene in 2010: among other praise, St. Louis Magazine called its calamari "as crispy-crunchy delectable as any seafood you?ll find in a New England clam shack" and its smoked ribs "the best upscale version of barbecue in the area."

  • Noboleis Vineyards
    The old mulberry tree at the top of Noboleis Vineyards—the same creature that graces the estate's wine labels—symbolizes the endurance of Robert and Lou Ann Nolan in pursuing their dream to own a vineyard. After purchasing a 74-acre expanse of Augusta farmland in 2005, the Nolans planted their first grapes: chambourcin, traminette, norton, and vignoles. Initial growth indicated high yields, but a late frost in 2007 claimed most of the chambourcin crop. Adversity struck again in 2011, when a tornado tore through part of the vineyards and lifted sections of roof off of the winery. But between these setbacks, the Nolans built a steady string of accomplishments. Their first vintages claimed multiple awards at the 2010 Missouri Governor's Cup, and what had started as plain farmland grew into an estate encompassing an onsite winery, tasting room, cafe, and wine shop. The Nolans now lead tours and host tastings so that visitors can get an up-close look at how Noboleis's wines—such as the barrel-fermented vidal blanc—are produced without tickling the grapes. The indoor and outdoor grounds also regularly host events that range from weddings to live music performances.

  • Blumenhof Vineyards Winery
    Nestled amid the picturesque river valleys and pastoral scenery of the Augusta wine region, Blumenhof Winery treats guests to gourmet meals and handcrafted wines made from Missouri-grown grapes. Just as the members of a barbershop quartet work together to fight crime, the four courses of August 19's prix fixe dinner operate harmoniously to conquer cravings, combining complementary culinary styles for a well-orchestrated epicurean experience. The peppery prelude of chilled shrimp in a piquant Cajun remoulade comes partnered with crisp andouille and roasted-red-pepper confit, followed by a spicy Sichuan salad sporting bean sprouts, crisp arugula, celery, carrots, and chopped peanuts. The main course of pork tenderloin travels atop plates with a savory retinue of red Colusari rice and haricots verts, and the sweet finale of Kahlua crème brûlée leaves feasters grinning as broadly as a Cheshire cat at a comedy club thanks to its dulcet dollop of cardamom whipped cream.
