Blue Sky wines are the best. Even wine snobs will enjoy these! The winery is beautiful, reminiscent of Italy. If you are doing the wine trail, make this your lunch stop. You can enjoy your food and drink outside or inside. The grounds are beautiful, and live music is performed on select dates. This is a must visit winery!

Made a visit on a beautiful day in March to the Blue Sky Winery. Was pleasantly surprised how nice of a place this is. The tasting building and grounds were beautiful. Did the wine tasting and all the wines were good. Bought some of there famous bread and olive oil dipping and would recommend getting that.

Having been to Italy a little over a year ago, Blue Sky brought back beautiful memories of Italy. The manager and staff were extremely friendly and made us feel quite welcomed!

We stayed in the Tuscan Suite on the property and loved the room! It was clean, comfortable, peaceful and very well put together. It was a short stay for us and the staff was very accommodating. We wish we would have had more time to take advantage of the winery tour they offered but we are already planning out second... More

All the people at the wineries were very very pleasant and quite helpful with a willingness to help us have a good time, even if our next stop was not going... More

Great acoustic band playing while sipping sweet wine-- what's not to like?? The staff was friendly and helpful with selecting a wine that we enjoyed.

Nice vineyard with outstanding views. Wine is a little pricey for the area, but a nice winery nonetheless. Recommend at least stopping in for a tasting.

This place does not look like it belongs in Southern IL, it's magnificent. We aren't huge fans of the wines, but we had a great time despite that fact. The tasting was fun and informative.
