AUGUSTA, Mo. (KMOV.com) - When you see images of fields of grapes you may think of vineyards in California but the vineyards in Missouri are getting national attention, and their history is fascinating.

Missouri wine country is unique and has a history of wine making far older than the Golden State.

In fact, the vineyards near Augusta are number one in a way that Napa Valley will never be able to catch up to. The Augusta area became the first nationally recognized area where wine is grown in the 80s.

Watch this week’s St. Louis Proud to hear why Missouri wineries are getting national attention.
