Wine & Food Pairing Weekends

11 wineries of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail have paired up to create three wonderful, themed, wine and food pairing events.  We invite you to join us for a progressive tasting along the trail and enhance your appreciation and enjoyment of our wines paired with delicious samples.

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.

Our wineries are all open for regular business hours during this event.

Cheese – Not a Solo Act – March 1-2, 2024
