I visited the Lincoln Heritage Winery last week, during my trip to Illinoi. I live In San Francisco, near the famous wine country Napa and Sonoma; so my friends and I took 1 hour drive down south to see Illinoi’s wineries. Among all of them Lincoln Heritage was the best. It is located in Cobden Il. Unlike other places this... More

The first stop on our winery tour and couldn't have started more pleasent. Bonnie and Homer are just great people. Bonnie took the time to explain how they started the business, how they produce the wines and what particular wines go with what particular foods. The wines are named after Chicago traditions, e.g. Water Tower. It was friendly evening of... More

Homer and his wife are fabulous hosts! Always take time to meet their guests and introduce them to each wine. It is truly full service here. Love the rail splitter and the cherry chocolate!

Nothing is more relaxing then meeting a few friends out in the middle of the day, catching up and sharing an amazing bottle of wine. Bonnie and Homer have created a cozy, intimate atmosphere that is easy to settle in to. Their knowledge of wine is deep but relatable making the task of settling on just one bottle a difficult...

I loved the owners, Bonnie & Homer, sweet as can be- Wonderful company! The friendly dogs & what seemed liked hundreds of hummingbirds made for a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere. Bonnie & Homer are very knowledgable about wine and have a lot of experience from around the world. Their wines are delicious!! Can't wait to re-visit next time I'm in... More

Friendly place to sip and taste several wines. Owner rescues dogs so it is a very homey atmosphere. View of the vineyards from the patio is pretty. Shawnee wine trail is a nice day trip but Napa and Sonoma have nothing to worry about. Wines are fruity and good, though.

Not much of a wine connoisseur myself, but my wife is from Belgium, and she raved about the quality. We spent several hours there soaking up the charming atmosphere and the exceptional friendliness provided by the host and hostess, who gladly supplied scads of wine information, as well as great hospitality. The outside was as pleasant and spacious as the... More

A fun addition to our winery tours last weekend. We were met at the car by 3 friendly dogs (but big, if you're nervous around dogs, which I'm not). They followed us inside where we were the only ones in the winery and had the owner's (Homer) undivided attention. Wine was pretty good, but we had an entertaining conversation, which... More
