About Mount Pleasant Winery
As one of Branson's finest wineries, Mount Pleasant Winery brings some of the finest flavors to the Branson area! This lovely winery is the oldest in the Augusta Appellation. With a rich history beginning with two brothers in 1859, the winery has gone on to create award winning wines and lovely experiences for everyone who visits. Each original cellar is created of wood and limestone from the Ozarks, offering a local flair to the setup. Sadly, during the Prohibition era, the vineyard was set on fire and the equipment was destroyed. The Dressel family purchased the Augusta location in 1966 and completely revamped the winery experience, including opening the Branson location that you will visit on this tour. Today, there are 9 varieties of grapes grown between the two vineyards. The Branson location features a lovely tasting room, classes, holiday events, and more. Visitors can also purchase their favorite wine during the tours.
Whether you are a pinot noir fan or love red wine, there are many flavors to discover! Book today for a one-of-a-kind activity in the Branson area during your next vacation.
