Blaufrankish, Zweigelt, Saint Laurent, and Gruner Veltliner may sound funny, but they are all grapes native to one of the most up and coming winemaking areas in the world at the moment.... Austria. Yes, Austria!! In the chilly Alps, the wines made from these oddly named grapes are astounding in their purity and finesse and Winemonger is THE importer for wines from Austria. Join us and Angela Warren (of Pinnacle Wines, the local distributor of Winemonger wines) as we pair these remarkable wines with the inspired dishes of Chef DeWayne. This "20 in 20" Dinner will consist of a 5 course food and wine pairing. Reservations are available by calling 573 334 8330. The cost per person is $90 not including tax and gratuity. The seating for this dinner will be limited to 20 guests, so please make reservations in advance!

Becky Wasserman & Co was founded in 1979 by Becky Wasserman-Hone, an American expatriate who has lived in Burgundy since 1968. Our company exports wines from small domaines and shippers in Burgundy and other regions who honour their appellations. We do not endorse any single method of vinification or an “ideal” type of wine.
The company has a team of seven, four who sell, three who administer. We lunch together in the office, we all are enthusiastic eaters, we often taste wines which may enter into our portfolio. We follow a simple rule: “If we won't drink it, we won't sell it”.
Wine is more than a commodity to us. We have gone through many highs and lows and none of us would be working here if we didn't believe that wine eases and embellishes peoples' lives. We hope that our Website fulfills its ambition to be informative, educational, provocative, and amusing. Sante!

Regarding Bocale Winery:
Majestically perched with the gently rolling hills of Umbria, the ancient village of Montefalco is one of Central Italy's hidden treasures. Established by the Etruscans, the town boasts both a turbulent political history and deeply rooted passion for the arts. It is also famous for its contributions to viticulture, most particularly as the home of Italy's most structured grape- Sagrantino.
Located just outside the town and near the famous church of Madonna della Stella, Bocale is a small estate fanatically dedicated to the preservation of this noble grape varietal. Operated by the Valentini family for over a century, the winery has become famous for the employment of methods in its farming and vinification techniques that are traditional yet also innovative. Primary focus is given tot he cultivation of top quality fruit using the region's historicaly preferred clones of Sagrantino and Sangiovese, and attention is paid to limit the winery's environmental foot-print. The end results are hand-crafted, uncuous yet heady wines that are extremely complex.
