Cheese – Not a Solo Act

March 3 - March 4


All 11 wineries of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail have paired up to create a wonderful weekend.  Is there anything more classic than the perfect wine paired with the right cheese?  Join us for a fun-filled weekend of cheese infused dishes that showcase how cheese can play the perfect supporting role to our award-winning wines.  This is a great weekend to explore different styles of Illinois wine with many different, delicious and comforting cheese/cheese infused dishes.

How it Works: Pre-purchase your ticket online and select your starting point.  The first winery that you visit will give you a souvenir wine glass and your tasting ticket. Bring your ticket to each location along the trail to enjoy your pairings. Leave your completed/stamped tasting ticket at the last winery visited to be entered for a chance to win a great prize from one of our associate members.

Event Hours:  Saturday, March 3, 2018 (11:00am-5:00pm) and Sunday, March 4, 2018 (12:30pm-5:00pm)

Prizes Include:  Overnight Stay at Cabin at Compardo Farms
