    This is not my favorite winery on the wine trail. Yes, the building and property are pretty, the wine is okay, the attitude of the staff is poor. I really dislike having to stand in two separate lines...  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.
