Before prohibition, Kansas combined with Missouri to form one of the largest grape-growing and wine-making regions in America. The fertile soils of Kansas are the perfect home for certain varieties of grapes. Today, Kansas' landscape is now dotted with a growing number of local wineries, some of which are winning national and international awards with Kansas-grown grapes. Three Kansas wine trails – Glacial Hills Wine Trail, Kaw Valley Wine Trail, and Somerset Wine Trail – promote friendly wineries and great Kansas wines to share with friends. Get in on the action by touring a Kansas vineyard and helping with the harvest!
