Holiday Open House - November 24-25, 2017
Relax with family and friends and enjoy a fantastic afternoon on the trail with award-winning Illinois wines. You can even start your holiday shopping early with great gifts along the trail. Avoid the long lines and crowds in town and find a gift for that hard to shop for person right here on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Let the knowledgeable staff along the trail direct you towards a great bottle of wine, gift basket or gift card for friends, family, colleagues or yourself.
This year, several wineries will be working with various local charities. In the spirit of giving, help us to fill the cupboards for our cause. After all, helping others feels great, doesn't it?
