Established in 1836, Augusta is a quaint town and wine region located in Northeast Missouri just outside of St. Louis. Its location above the bluffs of the Missouri River valley makes it a pretty good spot to grow grapes. In June of 1980, Augusta was recognized by the federal government as the first designated American Viticultural Area (A.V.A.) in the United States. Napa Valley was number two six months later. As Shad is from Missouri originally and finds this fact pretty funny, it just seemed like the right thing to do.
