This is my favorite winery in Southern Illinois because they allow you to bring your own food and offer grills. If you want to have parties you also can rent tent and table set ups. We have celebrated numerous life events here- college graduations, engagements,...More

Thought I would love this winery and I gave it several tries. The staff is snooty and the food was less than to be desired. Most disappointing of local Wineries, it has so much potential and it let me down more every time I visited.

We stopped here, tried a few wines, then ordered a pizza and a bottle of wine. The pizza was amazing! Some of the best we have had and so happy we stopped and tried it.

Drink your heart out here with local wines. Sit outside and enjoy some live music, or just enjoy the scenery. Biker friendly parking... (been there before on the bike). You can have weddings here too. Just all together a nice place.

Beautiful location, views and decorating. Plenty of sitting area and helpful staff. Many gifts and wine is delicious. Decent prices and the best olive oil on the planet!

This winery is very nicely decorated in a Tuscan-style and had lovely wines and large sitting areas both inside and out. There was a muscician playing and singing on the Sunday that we visited. There appeared to be a walking trail that went up past...More

First time on the trail! Stayed 1 nite B/B. Landscaping was one of the best. Small pond, man made waterfall, grapevines on site. Lots of table and chairs. Architecture inside was nicely done. Only Two separate rooms above wine bar for renting. For breakfast they...More

Makanda, Illinois, isn't to be confused with Napa Valley or the South of France. But, while looking for a place to eat lunch while driving through the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois, we came upon Blue Sky Vineyards, a family owned vineyard and winery...More
