Shawnee Hills Wine Trail

Discover the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, Illinois' first official American Viticultural Area (AVA) designation! Shawnee Hills' wines are known for their uniqueness and distinct flavors only found in southern Illinois.

Located in the very southwest corner of the state, Shawnee Hills spans the western portion of the Shawnee National Forest. Area rivers, lack of geologic glaciations, and good ground drainage make Shawnee Hills ideal for vineyards. Moreover, Shawnee Hills' climate is similar to that found in wine-producing regions of Spain and Italy, resulting in grapes that rival those of traditional wine-making regions.

Our beautiful wineries are ideal destinations for wine tastings, tours of both the grounds and the wineries, and distinctive gift ideas for any occasion. Some of our wineries offer hall rental for special occasions and celebrations.

For your extended Shawnee Hills Wine Trail exploration, try an area bed and breakfast for your lodging needs. Member inns of the Illinois Bed and Breakfast Association provide the perfect atmosphere for your viticultural adventures!
