Happy Earth Day! 🌎

The earth and its health are important to us at St. James Winery and Public House Brewing Company. Our team makes conscious efforts daily to reduce our negative impact on the earth and to increase our positive impact. Sustainability is so important, in fact, that each webpage has a tab uniquely to highlight our practices.

At St. James Winery, we love the land we work, and we appreciate the yield it provides. To continue the work of preserving the cultural and environmental sustainability in our community, we formed the Friendship School Foundation. Through the Foundation and its partners, we are able to invest in sustaining the cultural heritage of our vineyards, our craft, and our community.

Here are a few ways we make a difference:

  • Recycle cardboard, plastic, glass, aluminum company-wide
  • Solid waste from both businesses used as compost in the vineyards
  • LED lighting used in winery and brewery retail, production, and office spaces
  • Electricity 208V 3 phase minimum through production facilities for energy efficiency
  • Aluminum cans for all brewery products and winery sparkling products
  • Spent grain is picked up by a local farmer for cattle
  • Insulated tanks in the brewery reduce the energy needed to cool and maintain temperature
  • Reclaim water from heat exchanger for brewing
  • Low-pressure boiler in the brewery that is sized appropriately for energy efficiency
  • To-go materials for food from the brewery are recyclable
  • Insulated piping for glycol refrigeration system in the winery for energy efficiency
  • Vinwizard adjusts pump speeds depending on demand (Artificial Intelligence for energy efficiency)
  • Fine-tuned irrigation and soil monitoring system so we use less water in our vineyards
  • Beehive addition to our vineyard perimeter and adding three to four more this year. Bees help pollinate our cover crops
  • Wildflowers and other native plants (cover crops) encourage diversity of insect populations in the vineyard, help with compaction, reduce pests, and are a natural aid to healthy nitrogen levels in the soil
  • Wine tank bottoms filtered/reclaimed and solid waste composted to avoid stressing water treatment facilities
  • Vineyard pruning and hedging equipment redesigned to do two rows at once, lowering diesel usage
  • UTVs instead of trucks in order to reduce carbon footprint (less gas) to transport crew and equipment
  • New tractors run that run economically, using half the diesel as the older models
  • High-efficiency boiler in the winery cellar and bottling room
  • Nitrogen generation reduces our use of CO2 gas in the brewing process
  • Local farmers source much of our protein and vegetables in the brewery’s restaurants
  • Pak Tech can applicators used on all canned products, with recycling containers placed at both brewery locations

We were thinking about what candy goes well with wine and came up with these pairings as our treat for you this Halloween!

These are great for a ghouls night in or just to try when the little goblins go off to bed and you have a moment to indulge. Have fun and share any pairings you come up with on social meeting – just don’t forget to tag us. Happy Halloween!

 

VELVET RED & PEANUT BUTTER CUPS
With flavors of grape jam combining with chocolate and peanut butter, this is a combo to die for.

VELVET WHITE & FRUIT CHEWS
This one is not a trick. Just a sweet treat worth trying. The fruity flavors of the candy only enhance that of the wine.

PINK CATAWBA & SOUR GUMMY WORMS
A ghoulishly good pairing. The sour gummies bring out the bright, ripe apple flavors of the Pink Catawba.

CHARDONEL & CANDY CORN
Sweet candy corn and the smooth taste of Chardonel make for a hauntingly good experience.

ESTATE NORTON & DARK CHOCOLATE
This classic combination is so dark and devilishly good. Need we say more?

For seven years, St. James Winery has released a seasonal wine that has become a customer favorite. With that, we felt it was time to give St. James Winery Cranberry wine a makeover.

This wine is perfect for gift-giving, serving at your next holiday gathering or sipping. Our wine is crafted from 100% cranberry juice with all-natural ingredients, so it is free of artificial colors or flavors. With premium ingredients and garnering international awards, you can rest assured you are serving friends and family a wine of integrity and excellence.

This sweet and mildly tart wine pairs wonderfully holiday meals and will look lovely with your table setting. Just remember, being our top selling seasonal selection, St. James Winery Cranberry wine has become a favorite tradition and will not last long on the shelves. Find it online, in our tasting rooms and in stores that carry St. James Winery products.

**This is a kid and pet-friendly event.
Check out the recap from last year’s Crush Festival.

We invite you to a complimentary tasting of this dry red wine on Thursday, November 15 in our Tasting Room from 4 – 6 p.m. This year’s Winemaker Series Nouveau displays aromas and flavors of black cherries and plums, and we will be pairing it with Irish Stew from our campus partner’s kitchen at Public House Brewing Company.

In honor of this year’s harvest, we not only created a our annual Nouveau wine, but also a three-part video series covering the harvest from our St. James Winery vineyards. The videos are posted below for you to enjoy prior to our Nouveau Release Party.

The tradition of creating a Nouveau wine originated in the Beaujolais region of France. Beaujolais Nouveau began as an early release wine to celebrate the end of harvest with the intention of it being enjoyed young. Under French law, it is to be released on the third Thursday in November after each harvest.

In the early 1960’s some of the local vignerons saw potential to promote the wine with a contest to see who could get the first bottle to Paris. From there it spread throughout Europe, and by the 1980’s North Americans had joined the party followed by Asia in the 1990’s.

It’s so popular that one third of Beaujolais’ production is dedicated to the Nouveau style with over 28 million bottles produced annually. Following in this French tradition, St. James Winery began creating our own regional Nouveau over 20 years ago right here in the Meramec Highlands.

We hope you will join our St. James Winery family and be a part of this tradition to help us celebrate our bountiful harvest! Until then, enjoy the below video series where our Executive Winemaker, Andrew Meggitt, discusses the topics of weather conditions affecting harvest, quality vs. quantity and farm to table agriculture in Missouri.

It takes the hard work and effort of an entire vineyard and cellar crew to produce our internationally awarded wines. Discover how the fruit is carefully cultivated to ensure the integrity of the wines you know and love!
