Day trip: Ste. Genevieve and the wineries

The French colonial town of Ste. Genevieve has long deserved to be a weekend destination for St. Louisans.

In addition to 250 years of history, a variety of bed & breakfast and restaurants, the area has added a number of wineries. We talked with Hank Johnson, owner of Chaumette. 

But Chaumette is not the only place to stop on the Ste. Genevieve area wine trail:
