Definitely a great place to visit. Rudy and Vivian are fantastic hosts for the tour and tasting. I've been on tours at other wineries, including Napa, and thought they were good, but after experiencing this I realize the other places were mediocre. It's always good...More

Do not go on the vineyard tour. They charged for a "tour" that consisted of the owner of the winery rambling for 30 minutes (or less?) and then abruptly walking back into the house for the tasting. We walked to a group of vines that...More

We did a groupon which I would not recommend, it was for a Tour, Seminar and Tasting. It certainly sounds good but I assure you it wasnt. The tour consisted of a walk down to the grapevines and a 25-35 minute lecture on variety and...More

The best part about this vineyard was Rudolph Valentino DiTommaso -the owner. He does know a lot about wines and explains everything very nicely. But the wines are fair, very sweet compared to most and seemed to taste all the same after a while. They...More

Valentino Vineyards is odd at best. If you are looking for good quality and good tasting wine, this place is not for you. Rudi the host is also rather "unique", he is very engaging, but not always in a professional way. You almost get the...More

We went to Valentino for a fun thing to do on a summer weekend and it fit the bill. As my husband is an oenophile we certainly weren't expecting much from an Illinois wine. I am happy to report that they were better than expected....More
