Beautiful Winery in Southern Illinois

The best time to go to Blue Sky is during the week. The Personal attention and the peaceful atmosphere is what brings us back over and over. The Pizza is really good too.

We tasted Blue Sky Vineyard's wine at the Ottawa Two Rivers Wine Fest, and after hearing what the place offered, we knew we had to see Blue Sky. First, it is absolutely a stunning winery situated on a sloping hill that looks onto a small lake. Chairs are situated all over the grounds, some under enormous umbrellas and others under... More

The Tuscan style building and surroundings make this winery stand out on the Shawnee Wine Trail. We walked around the grounds and down by the small waterfall. It would be an ideal place for a wedding. Even the tables have unique paintings on them. We ate lunch at the winery. They serve sandwiches and pizza. The food was good. The... More

We sat outdoors and enjoyed the slight breeze and scenery. We did a tasting, had bread and oil for an appetizer, pizza for dinner. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Looking forward to our next visit! Try the Sangria!

We visited every winery on the Shawnee Hills Wine trail, and each one was unique. Blue Sky was our favorite because of the beauty of the location, the charm of the architecture, and the friendliness of the staff. They also have some very nice wine! We enjoyed a delicious lunch and a glass of wine on the patio overlooking the... More

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!
