Was not my husband and mine's first visit here but brought family from St. Louis here for a family get together and they loved it, everything from the view and wines to the sangrias! more »
This was our 1st winery on our 2 day tour of the Shawnee Wine Trail. We had sandwiches which were excellent before we did the tasting. My 1st time to try Illinois wine and we ended up with a bottle of... more »
First off, this was by far our favorite of the seven wineries we visited on this day. They run a top notch operation here. It is a beautiful setting, and both the food and wines were delicious. They w... more »
Customer service is terrible. It's almost like they want you to walk out. Also, for a vineyard where staff constantly touts they're a, "five star" establishment, I didn't expect to see Aldi food marked up to ridiculous prices. Staff needs training on how not to be condescending. I will never return here because all the other vineyards on the wine trail know how to treat customers.
This was my 8th stop on the Illinois wine trail. This was one of the larger vineyards I have seen on the trail. The grounds were beautiful and the wine was just fine. Other wineries (especially the smaller ones) have staff who know all about the wine and are EAGER to share their knowledge with you. This place was employed by college students who did not seem to relish working there. Our server seemed to be in a pissed off mood the entire time. Maybe we were unlucky, or maybe the manager should consider hiring people who don't make their business look bad.
Customer service anything but welcoming. We felt very unwelcomed in a place we have never been. Service absolutely poor. We where so excited that we had a winery so close to where we are staying. The building is beautiful, the wine Good. However the service, has made us decide to drive further for a good glass of wine.
Nice wine and food, staff very unfriendly. Attitude of staff overshadowed the experience of enjoying the wine.
Beautiful scenery... Very relaxing!
