Winemaking in Missouri: A Well-Cultivated History

Directed by Catherine Anys Neville & Chris Roider
60 minutes

Catherine Neville, the Emmy-winning producer and host of Nine Networks’ “tasteMAKERS,” and co-director Chris Roider trace the nearly 200-year history of Missouri’s rich winemaking past. Their documentary features winemakers and experts detailing the evolution of what was — and is again today — one of the state’s leading industries. Weaving together historic images with in-depth interviews, “Winemaking in Missouri” touches on winemaking’s inflection points across the decades. Among those featured: Jon Held from Stone Hill Winery, Pat and Peter Hofherr from St. James Winery, Angie Geis of Noboleis Vineyards, Annie Gunn’s sommelier Glenn Bardgett, and Kansas City-based author and wine consultant Doug Frost (who is one of only four people in the world to hold the dual titles of Master Sommelier and Master of Wine).

With co-directors Neville and Roider.
