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

Merlot:  A light-bodied red wine aged with French oak, our Merlot has notes of ripe fruit, cherry and spices with smooth tannins.  

 

Zinfandel:  This Zin is dry, smooth, full-bodied and fruit-forward. The aroma presents notes of blackberry, cherry and jam with plack pepper on the way out.


Leon Millot:  This midwest hybrid has light acidity and great mouth-feel. French oaked with a smoky aroma pairs well with grilled meats and heavy cheeses.

Marquette: This cold-hardy hybrid grape has some Pinot Noir heritage. Your new fall favorite jumps out of the glass with tobacco, black fruit, and new leather notes in this medium-bodied dry red wine. 

Dama de Rojo: Lady in Red is a sweet blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese. 

 

Railroad Red:  A blend of five varieties (St. Croix, Leon Millot, Marquette, Noiret, and Chambourcin) come together, making a smooth sweet red with dark fruit flavors. Best chilled. 

White Wines

Blanca Una – Chardonnay:  Lightly buttery with a touch of American oak, our 2015 Chardonnay is robust with notes of pear, apple and citrus with a nice smooth finish.

 

Blanca Dos – Pinot Grigio:  Light and refreshing, this Pinot Grigio is clean and crisp with notes of pineapple and citrus perfect on a hot summer day or served with salads and seafood.  

 

Blanca Tres – Seyval Blanc:  Crisp and clean, this cold-hardy grape gives notes of citrus and light minerality, with a nice tartness and smooth finish.  

  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.

 

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.  


Blackberry:  Can you say sweet and tart? Who doesn't love a fresh blackberry? This wine is made with 100% blackberry fruit. Enjoy!  

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.
