Recently, I found myself home alone. The kids were at camp and my wife took off early for New Orleans where I would meet her for our summer break. I used to do well on my own, but now I don’t think I do. I used to go out and do stuff, now when I’m home alone, I just stay and binge watch TV and order pizza.
The pizza is good. I have no problem with delivery, but something made we wish for more. So I did some research about where one can find really good, homemade, wood-fired pizza and good beer and wine.
Today, we’re tackling wine and pizza in Missouri, where we have more than a dozen options.
There are more than 130 wineries to discover across the state. You can find anything and everything you’re looking for somewhere in Missouri wine country. If you’re a pizza fanatic, you’re in luck! At these 18 wineries, you can enjoy delicious pizza paired with handcrafted local wines. Is your stomach growling just thinking about a cheesy slice of wood-fired pizza and a glass of rich, earthy Chambourcin?
