Description

Pour a glass and taste the terroir of the Fox River Valley on this immersive look at the wineries and vintners scattered through northern Illinois. Savor rich reds, enjoy crisp whites, and explore innovative blends as you check out the cellars of some of the area's most renowned winemakers.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the Windy City to drive through pastoral landscapes and low rolling hills to your first destination. Hop out when you reach Galena Cellars, where you might swirl a glass of chardonnay or sip their house red before heading to your next stop.

While the wineries you visit vary, you could swing into the cellar room at Aqua Viva, or indulge in a few glasses at Fox Valley Winery before you wrap up your tasty tour at Lynfred Winery with more samples. Along the way, make a stop for a gourmet lunch and pair your delectable bites with fine vintages and perhaps buy a few bottles for yourself before you head back to Chicago.
