Orlandini Vineyard began its roots in 1988 when their first vines were planted and over two decades later the grapes are still flourishing. Located on one of southern Illinois' highest ridge tops, deep in the heart of the Shawnee Hills A.V.A., you will love the view from our patio. After years of practice and experimentation in wine making, Orlandini Vineyard began releasing wines to the the public in 2001. Novices and connoisseurs have been enjoying our hand tended vintages ever since.
In the summer of 2017, Randy and Renee Feather purchased Orlandini Vineyard. Randy, a southern Illinois native, fell in love with winemaking while in graduate school and knew that one day he would be a winery owner, even mentioning this to Renee while on their first date. As time passed, and the relationship grew, Randy's dream became a passion for them both. Making their dream a reality in southern Illinois, they look forward to carrying on the tradition of great wines and friendly service that began with Gary Orlandini while adding their own, unique touches.
