Les Bourgeois Vineyards

Les Bourgeois Vineyards will hold its annual Crush Festival on Sept. 18. The event is from 2 to 6 p.m. at the vineyards, 14020 W. Highway BB in Rocheport.

The winery is the third largest in Missouri and has recently expanded.

The festival has existed since the conception of Les Bourgeois Vineyards in 1985. It’s a family event with a live music, tours, tastings, a homemade wine competition, kids games and a fishing derby. The winery even sets up an area where event-goers can crush their own grapes.

“It’s a celebration of the harvest,” said Tim Weiss, director of sales for Les Bourgeois.

He said the winery is expecting a record harvest this year and said the event is a really fun day for everyone.

For more information, contact Les Bourgeois Vineyards at 698-2133.
