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.”
