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.

Mysterioso is my all time favorite wine! Always stock up when I am here! No matter how busy it is, there is always a place to sit, love the giant umbrellas! Just a beautiful setting! LOVE this winery!!

My BFF lives, nearby, so every year we visit. Can't wait to go again. Haven't had a wine from there that I didn't like! Very friendly and love the atmosphere. Beautiful scenery.
