Travel to Missouri’s beautiful wine country, which is long on history and charm. First stop is at the Augusta, MO Visitor Center and browse the shops along historic Walnut Street. The Augusta Visitor Center is home to Augusta Gifts, providing a wide variety of items such as home décor, t-shirts, coffee mugs, Christmas ornaments and personal items you may have forgotten for your visit. Clerks are available to assist you in learning about the town, with directions and contact information for the various businesses in the area.
Board the newly renovated Miss Augusta Luxury Yacht for a relaxing lunch cruise on the Missouri River. See and experience Missouri’s sights from a completely new perspective. Miss Augusta offers opportunities to soak in the sunshine or enjoy the climate controlled air-conditioned salons as you cruise and enjoy the beautiful scenery from the Missouri River. The captain will do a light narration of the history of the area while you sit back, relax and enjoy lunch.
After lunch, visit Mount Pleasant Winery. Discover the charm and history of old world winemaking with a private tour. Taste the richness and variety of Mount Pleasant’s award-winning wines on your own (wine tasting not included in cost). Founded in 1859, Mount Pleasant grows 12 grape varieties on 75 acres and its original limestone cellars are still used to age estate-bottled wines and international award-winning Augusta Ports. The winery features a serene atmosphere with spectacular views of the Missouri River Valley.
