Cuttings from Missouri grape vines helped restore the French wine industry after they fell desolate as Mildew and then Phylloxera spread throughout the country. Winemaking wouldn't hit its stride in Lafayette County until the late 1990's. But today Lafayette County now has six wineries, more than any other single county in the state and are considered among the best produced anywhere in the United States.
