Astral Glass Studio features a temperature controlled seating area for your comfort while watching the artists work. If you are looking for a unique gift or something for the entire family to do, check out Astral Glass Studio in downtown New Haven.
• Robller Vineyard & Winery: Family operated winery on a beautiful hillside in the heart of Missouri Wine Country. The winery is located within a mile to the south of the Missouri River in the small town of New Haven. Robert and Lois Mueller along with their children have grown what began as a backyard hobby into a formidable estate styled winery. Currently we have about 18 acres under vine with a mix of mainly French Hybrids including; Chambourcin, St. Vincent, Villard Noir, Vidal and Vignoles as well as Traminette, Seyval and of course Norton. Live music from 1 - 5 pm
We should be at near peak time for the beautiful fall foliage on our Oct 14th trip!!
