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

This was our first stop on our southern Illinois winery adventure We were pleased with the samples and the helpfulness of the staff in our next venture as well. 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.

We've been many times and have always enjoyed! The property is located in the beautiful Shawnee Forest. Setting is absolutely wonderful. Wines are very good. Our favorite is the Estate Cabernet Franc. Excellent. The seasoned olive oil and bread is a must try. Enjoy!

We stopped by for drinks and a sandwich on a perfectly "Blue Sky" cloudless, fall Saturday afternoon. Several groups had stopped by and the place was busy! Blue Sky Vineyard is a bit off the beaten track but well worth your time to find it! A beautiful Tuscan style building, friendly staff and delicious wine! (Beer too if you prefer)... More

What a feeling you get when you walk through the front door. I felt as if I were in Tuscany. Beautifully done floor to ceiling. Enjoyed a bottle of wine and bread with dipping oil. Sunday afternoon music was enjoyable. A definite must return place.
