Our Wines

With more than XX different kinds of wines to choose from, our winery appeals to both wine novices and veterans, bringing the cultural experience of New and Old World wines to Peoria Heights, IL. We make many of the popular varietals, including Merlots, Cabs and Chardonnays, as well as some harder-to-find wines such as Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, and Ports. Even though we make our wine on-site, we source grapes domestically and globally from some of the best grape growing regions in the world, including California, Italy, France, New Zealand, Chile, and Germany.
