The views along the ride will not disappoint you. After, we will drive to Bear Creek Winery, a great family friendly winery, surrounded by fantastic views of the Ozarks. We will enjoy a complimentary tasting of amazing red and white wines. After the tasting, they also have rustic pizza, smoked meats, cheese, and local chocolate for you to choose whatever your heart desires while we relax and socialize at their amazing space.
