Winery Sampling Fees

Like your experiences at each winery, sampling fees vary at each establishment. Many wineries include souvenir wine glasses with their sampling fee, while some offer glass deposits. Although tasting fees vary for our wineries, Illinois State Law requires that we charge for samples after a certain amount of wine is poured. We appreciate your understanding and consideration of this during your visit.
