This is the best winery we've visited in Illinois. They have live bands most weekends in the summer. And a great local wine. Lots of parking a great place for special event or wedding.

Very crowded, go early and bring your own chairs etc. Great music in summer. You can bring your own food, but not beverages. Fun place to hang out with group of friends. But it is outside so weather is a factor.

Beautiful evening looking over the vineyard. Wine tasting at the bar. Your first 3 samples are free, they charge a small price after that. We only had 3. Enjoyed a glass of Diane's desire (Contained a Niagara grape. One of my favorites.) and Priscilla's passion....More
