Our Wines

We pride ourselves on taking the time to create high-quality dry red and white wines, both locally and west coast sourced to evoke Californa style. You'll find sweet and fruit wines too. Our winemaker has something for everyone.

Red Wines

Uno - Pinot Noir:  Light-bodied, dry red. Nice and fruity with notes of cherry and dark berries. Smooth finish. One of the three wines that the winery was named for.


St. Croix - Misty Hill Winery:  Our friends at Misty Hill have created this soft dry red wine with prominent overtones of spice and cherry.  Great with marinated pork and beef. 

Petite Pearl - Misty Hill Winery: This wine is limited, so get it while you can. With a medium body, it presents a fruity aroma and soft, spicy finish.

Chambourcin: This midwest hybrid grape came from Southern Illinois, where we think this grape grows with the fullest expression. Soft, medium-bodied dry red wine with bright fruit flavors and aromas.

 

South Fork Red Blend: Fall in love with this rich, dry red blend of Petite Sirah, Barbera, and Sangiovese. Full-bodied with a long smooth finish. Enjoy!

 

Cabernet Sauvignon & Zinfandel: are both bottled and available upon request. They will be added to the menu as other dry red wines are out of stock.

Concord: It's ba-a-ack! Your favorite sweet red wine that reminds you of grape jelly on your peanut butter sammies...

White Wines

Blanca Una – Chardonnay:  Lightly buttery with a touch of American oak, our 2020 Chardonnay is robust with notes of pear, apple and citrus with a nice smooth finish.

 

Sauvignon Blanc:  Crisp and clean, with citrus, grass, and floral aromas. Slight tartness  picks up honey, peach, and apple notes.  

  Riesling: Classic off-dry Riesling is clean and crisp with a light sweetness that pairs well with seafood and spicy dishes.

 

Bésita de Roja: "Little kiss of Red", this off-dry Illinois Chambourcin Rosé has strawberry and Maraschino cherry flavors. A perfect sipper all on its own.

 

V2: Semi-Sweet V-squared is a 50/50 blend of Illinois-grown Vignoles and Vidal Blanc. Crisp apple and citrus flavors have a medium body and firm acidity that stand up well with spicy foods.

 

Traminette: With amazing floral notes, this semi-sweet wine is related to Gewurztraminer.  A perfect summertime wine.

 

Glacial White:  Made with Illinois Cayuga grapes, this light white wine is sweet, crisp, and clean, with subtle peach and melon flavors.  

Vino Dorado: "Golden Wine" made from Illinois LaCrescent has an amazing aroma and flavors of citrus, apricots, and apple. Sweet and smooth like honey.

Cheers

Fruit Wines

Strawberry: Made from 100% strawberries (no grapes were harmed in the making of this wine). One sniff and you'll think you have fresh strawberries in your glass.  


  

Blueberry Tart: We are so excited to bring you our third batch of Blueberry wine. It's sweet and tart and sooo smooth. Pairs nicely with chocolate or soft cheeses.

We have several more fruit wines in the tank, including 

our cult-favorite Rhu-Berry and a new Aronia Berry Wine!
