"How have I never heard of this place?" Is what I asked myself over and over as I strolled through the Van Till Winery. Upon arrival, you will notice rows of greenhouses filled with fruits, vegetables, and flowers. If there is a wait for a table, well, you'll just have to go do a wine tasting to fill the time. Right after the wine tasting and right when you think this place can't possibly get any better, they bring you a farm to table wood-fired pizza made by cooks and servers who are paid a living wage (no need to tip at Van Till, if you do it will go to a charity of their choosing.)
Van Till Winery is one of Missouri's best kept secrets, and only a 15-minute drive from The Elms Hotel and Spa. This combo is actually what started the staycation movement.
