Come explore the Northern Illinois Wine Trail

Galena Cellars Vineyard1

For Midwesterners, arriving in wine country means hopping a plane or driving for days. Or does it?

In the last two decades, wineries have sprung up all over this prairie land, and many of the places that use Illinois grapes in the wines they produce can be found along the Northern Illinois Wine Trail.

Conceived and launched four years ago to bring awareness to the local wine industry, the Northern Illinois Wine Trail was the starting point for TribLocal’s own exploration of the various places to enjoy a tasting, a glass and some ambiance throughout DuPage, Lake, Kane and Kendall Counties.
