Kansas City Wine Tours

Of course, who can’t forget about the queen of all Kansas City wine tours, the Kansas City Wine Tours itself? You have the opportunity to choose from five different tours — Weston End, Northeastern, River Runner, 70 Series, and Urban Vines — to sample various delicious wines and other tasty treats from participating wineries. This location is perfect for when you’re on a date or with a large group of friends! 

Amigoni Urban Winery

The Amigoni Urban Winery, located just five minutes away from downtown Kansas City, Missouri, considers itself an “urban” winery. After all, they’re the only winery in the state exclusively growing Vitis vinifera grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, we’re looking at you!). The location also offers wine tastings daily, local beer selections, and small plates featuring their favorite local cheeses. 

Wandering Vine at the Castle

As the name suggests, the Wandering Vine at the Castle can be found, well, inside a castle. The majestic structure is found in Shawnee, Kansas, which doubles as a restaurant — it’s actually the first and only restaurant to host a Kansas farm winery outlet, Grace Hill Winery. They offer tastings of this delicious wine, and if you’d like to bring a bottle home, you can purchase one from the outlet store inside The Castle. 

Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen

The Tannin Wine Bar and Kitchen, located within easy walking distance of the Kauffman Center, is a wondrous fusion of contemporary American cuisine and an excellent wine list (almost 90 glass options!). If that’s not tempting enough for you, this location has won a spot on OpenTable’s list of the top 100 best wine lists in the entire country. 

Underdog Wine Co.

They may be called underdog, but they’re anything but! Located in Kansas City, Underdog Wine Co. is a small, family-owned business that carries over 400 select wines. Aside from wines, they also carry artisan spirits, craft beers, and American bean-to-bar chocolates.
