Other than the overcast skies, the weather was delightful for a fall ride. The leaves while not at peak certainly were eye candy for us after months of surgeries and recuperation. Never mind that there may be more surgery in the near future, today was to be our day to enjoy fall. We were not disappointed.
The drive to the winery was only a short distance off pavement. A right turn onto a slightly winding gravel drive ended at Travers Home Winery. We rang the doorbell and walked in as instructed on the sign. A single room filled with wine making paraphernalia had the stage set for our tasting. Mr. Jim Travers, who had just returned from a trip to Korea with his daughter, shared his wine and some of his life story.
For you folks here in the Springfield, MO, area the winery has tastings every other Friday at the new super market at Kansas and Battlefield. Oh, you know the one! If you wish to make the short trip to Willow Springs to the Travers Home Winery prepare to do the Aux Arcs Wine Road tour. There are three wineries with in a 5 mile radius. We already are thinking about who we will take with the next time we go down to Willow Springs.
So hope you have enjoyed our fall wine tasting tour here in the Ozarks. Or as the French name for the region north of the northern most bend in the Arkansas River, Aux Arcs.
