Can't Top Tapas

Your final barbecue of the season is a coveted event: a summation of this summer's grilled offerings and a hint of what next year may bring. This weekend, make it unique — and trade in your basting brush for a wine glass or two. Just head to Mount Pleasant Winery (5634 High Street, Augusta) for the St. Louis Chefs' Wine Country BBQ from 1 to 4 p.m. During this fundraiser, you can enjoy the taste of the vineyard while you savor the sample-size fare that more than 30 local chefs have been busy basting, skewering and sizzling. Maybe you should try pairing Square One Brewery's house-smoked salmon BLT with a glass of Mount Pleasant's cuvée blanc, or match up LaCHEF & Company's grilled beef skewers with the winery's cabernet sauvignon: The delicious possibilities are endless, especially since proceeds from the event go toward scholarships and travel/study grants for aspiring St. Louis-area chefs. Tickets for the food fun are $40, which covers admission and tapas, and beverages are available for purchase. For more information or to order tickets, call 800-467-9463 or visit
