#17 Pirtle Winery

Weston, Mo. is home to Pirtle Winery, established in 1978.
The winery is housed in the former German Luthern Church. The tasting room is on the second floor. Honey wine, more commonly known as Mead, is the original wine in history. There are many stories attatched to the history of Mead. The Norsemen and Vikings are noted for their drinking of Mead and the English called it a love potion. It became tradition for a bride and groom to drink Mead from moon to moon and this is where the word “honeymoon” originated. Mead is a perfect after dinner drink served cold with cheese and fruit.Visit www.pirtlewinery.com to learn more and get directions. This makes a perfect drive on late summer, early fall days.
