Shawnee Hills Wine Trail Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"Wineries with porches overlooking the vineyards, expansive views of the surrounding countryside, a choice of bed-and-breakfasts, and one of the best state parks in Illinois—what could be better? How about throwing in a bike ride along a series of quiet, scenic roads? Wineries in Illinois have rapidly multiplied in recent years. Since the mid-1990s the number of wineries went from about a dozen to more than seventy, and now Illinois is among the top twelve wine-producing states in the nation. Many of Illinois’ new wineries have sprouted up within the Shawnee Hills. Kirby Pringle, a wine columnist for the News-Gazette in Champaign-Urbana, recommends trying Shawnee Hills wines."
