With more than 100 wineries, over 450 vineyards, 1100 grape producing acres, and at least 100 miles of wine trails – it’s no wonder Illinois is Wine! Illinois offers award-winning vintages and an impressive range of grape varietals. There are no vintners friendlier and no vineyards or trails more scenic with endless rivers and valleys crossing the state.

The Illinois wine experiences are diverse, yet we are all united with a passion and pride in creating and enjoying hand-crafted wines from the Land of Lincoln. Our wine country invites you to join the party, providing down to earth experiences and an incredible amount of fun.

Whether you’re north at a Chicago-area festival, or in the Shawnee National Forest to the south, or perhaps further east at a tranquil country winery or west on the Mississippi River, you’ll feel true hospitality and taste unique grape flavors offered by what is now the 12th largest wine-producing state in the country!

We invite you to join in all the fun Illinois wine has to offer. Because Illinois is Wine!
