Here in the Midwest, if your going for a weekend trip a visit to a winery is most likely on the list of pit stop's. I'm not the biggest wine drinker, but it's alway's fun to stop and taste, pick up some for friend's, or for a future dinner party etc.
My friend's and I popped in Mt. Pleasant Winery where we sampled some surprisingly delicious milk chocolate wine! I promise it sound's yuck but was so good I bought some for myself!
They also had a kool idea for a gift, where you could bottle and label your own sweet wine! If your in the Branson area, drop by for some fermented goodness!
