Opening Day at The Gardens signals the start of patio season for St. James Winery and Public House Brewing Company. Join them for a full day of festivities, including a new outdoor opportunity for complimentary wine and beer tastings, Saturday, April 21 from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.

“Soak in the surroundings sitting next to our cheerful waterfall and toasty fire pit; we are ready no matter what weather Missouri decides to throw at us!” said Gina Maben, events manager at St. James Winery and Public House Brewing Company. “In addition to trying our wood-fired pizza, be one of the first to try a glass of our new summer seasonal wine, Summer Berry. In honor of Earth Day, we are planting a new tree on our campus. It’s going to be a fun day!”

The Public House Brewing Company St. James Taproom and St. James Winery Tasting Room are located on the same campus, with The Gardens acting as a shared outdoor space between the two, right off Interstate 44 (551 State Route B, St. James, MO 65559).
