Intimate and comfortable boutique winery at the southern end of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, 20 miles south of Carbondale. Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design with inviting courtyard and view of vineyards. Complimentary tastings of wines ranging from an outstanding dry red to dessert style Riesling. Soda, beer, and snacks available for purchase, picnic baskets welcome. Near art galleries, B & Bs, and beautiful rocky cliffs and quiet streams.

The wine was very good. There wasn't too many choices of wine to pick from. The owner was very knowledgeable and answered a lot of questions I had about grape vines and how to grow them.
