Curbside Pickup Option – Available Daily
We are still offering curbside pickup as another option to get our wines to you.
Order your favorite wines by calling the winery, 618-995-9463, ahead of time or from our parking lot. Share with us when you would like to pick up your wine, and we’ll get it ready.
When picking up, park in front of the Tasting Room. Call us to let us know you have arrived. For the safety of you and our team members, we ask that you please stay in your car, and our staff will bring your wine out and set it on the table outside. The box or bags will have your name on it. Once our staff is back inside, you can safely get your wine from the table. If you order a case, and aren’t able to carry it, let us know and we will be happy to split your order into multiple bags to make it easier to carry. Thank you all for your support.
The Romance of Italy in the Hills of Southern Illinois
Anchoring the eastern end of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, our winery offers award-winning Illinois wines, classical Tuscan style and breathtaking views of the Shawnee National Forest. Designed with Tuscan-inspired décor including stucco walls, hand-hewn beams, Portuguese tiles and beautifully carved doors, we know that you will enjoy the carefree elegance of the winery while savoring a glass of our hand-crafted wine.
We are open year-round, 7 days a week, to provide award-winning Illinois wine. Please join us for wine tasting, a variety of hearty sandwiches, soups, pizzas, and snacks, as well as wine-alternatives such as beer and non-alcoholic beverages. Enjoy our large indoor seating area and two beautiful outdoor terraces that overlook our vineyard and the rolling countryside. The scenery of the Shawnee National Forest is beautiful year-round. What better way to enjoy it than with a glass of wine.
“Come and enjoy the fruits of our labor. One pleasure of being a winemaker at Blue Sky Vineyard is sharing and enjoying our handcrafted, regional wines with guests. We are especially proud of our Estate Grown wines. They allow us to truly showcase our philosophy of wine from grape to glass.
Join me at the winery to experience southern Illinois hospitality and relax with a glass…or two, of our award-winning wines. We can’t wait to share our wine tasting experience with you.”
– Karen Hand, Winemaker
