Fence Stile Vineyards & Winery is a family run vineyard & winery located just 40 minutes from downtown Kansas City and is set in the rolling hills of scenic Excelsior Springs, Missouri. We toured it as part of the Great Northwest Missouri Wine Trail, in my attempt to complete the entire trail this summer.
Our winery hosts were friendly and helpful, and our tasting was phenomenal. We had a lovely woman bring a nice selection to the table and explain each wine we were trying and told us quite a bit about how they grow the wine here.
Two of my favorites were the Fence Stile Vignoles which is sweeter than I normally prefer. It's a nice wine with a fruity nose. light straw colored with hints of ripe melon, peach and floral notes. The Fire Pit Red blends four varietals, and is a perfect mellow, dry red.
Why do they call it Fire Pit Red? They have outdoor fire pits to enjoy on cooler nights, and they feature music outdoors near the pits all year round. I recommend trying the place out. Good wine, pretty grounds and friendly people made for an excellent day touring the winery.
