If you find yourself raising a glass to Missouri Wine and Gift in early June, hopefully it will be to celebrate a new owner and new beginnings, and not to say a farewell.
The store at 2167 West Terra Lane in O'Fallon (just east of the Lake Saint Louis exit off Interstate 70), called itself "the complete wine experience in one location."
Owner/manager James Watkins and manager Lori Pearia told Patch they will be forced to close the doors of the shop on June 1 if they are unable to find a buyer for the business.

The shop offered Missouri wines and other domestic wines as well as international wines, wine- and beer-making supplies, wine racks and other wine-related gifts.
The store is in the process of a going-out-of-business sale. Everything, including wine racks and fixtures, is priced for sale.
