  • I convinced my girlfriend to spend the day hiking through the mud at Starved Rock by saying we would taste some wines after. The guy working the counter was really knowledgeable and told us about the winery and all the wines they make. We each tried six wines, and we walked out with six bottles. My gf was a big fan of the strawberry-rhubarb, and I really liked the Chateau St. Nik and the Norton. It's only $3 for six tastings.
  • Nice place to enjoy a glass of wine after visiting Starved Rock.
  • Very friendly and knowledgeable! Love the seasonal wines.
  • Great place to pick up a case of wine
  • Remarkably good wines - finally an IL winery that knows how to make dry red and white. But their sweet and dessert wines are great quality too. Highly recommend the Norton, Pinot Noir, and Illinois port. Yes, a port from IL too. Tasting is well worth it.
