Missouri wine country is renowned. In fact, America’s first nationally recognized wine district is in Augusta — just west of St. Louis along the Missouri River. St. Louisans love their wine, and you’ll find a lot of fun places to sip a light Chardonnay or a dry Merlot while listening to a little live music or just relaxing and talking with friends. - Dianna Graveman

The Vine Wine Bar and Bistro

325 South Main Street
St. Charles, MO 63301
(636) 946-VINE (8463)
www.thevineonmain.com

Here’s a wine bar with a twist: The Vine on Main donates part of its proceeds to nonprofit organizations in its community. A fraction of the organizations The Vine supports includes St. Charles Boys and Girls Club, the St. Charles Humane Society and the National Farm Worker Ministry. Enjoy reasonably-priced, delicious selections from the dinner and wine list. Offerings include Chicken Chasseur, Pecan Almond Encrusted Salmon, Filet Mignon and other choices. And this is refreshing: The Vine posts its menu prices right on its Web site — no guessing games.

Hours: Sunday through Thursday, 5 to 10 p.m. (kitchen closes at 9 p.m.); Friday and Saturday, 5 to 11 p.m. (kitchen closes at 10 p.m.).
