Recent Ribbon Cuttings

Owner Lori Cheatham celebrated the grand opening of her new business, Wineology with a ribbon cutting on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

Joining Lori was her husband, children, mom and several staff members. Also on hand were City of St. Charles Economic Development Director Mike Klinghammer, representatives from several Missouri Wineries and Distilleries who were offering samples and board members and ambassadors with the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce.

Wineology is located at 3767 New Town Blvd in St. Charles. Did you know that the state of Missouri bottles nearly 1 million gallons of wine annually? It's true! The State of Missouri was designated an award-winning wine-growing region before Napa, California even pinged on most wine-lovers' radar. At Wineology, they strive to honor the state's long and distinguished wine-making history by offering locally and regionally bottled wines, beers, spirits and featuring locally-made products on their food menus.

For more information on Wineology, their products and menu, please visit or call 636-757-3048
