Visit Balducci Vineyards
We’re located down Highway 94 just miles from Washington, Marthasville, Dutzow, and the heart of Augusta. Coming from the St. Louis and Chesterfield area, you can take the Weldon Spring exit off of Highway 64 and head west down 94. The drive down Highway 94 from either direction will take you past farmland, rolling hills, and the Katy Trail.
