Very nice environment and great staff. The wine was delicious. I had a hard time deciding which one to bring home, so we brought home 3!

This has to be the best location and most beautiful winery on the trail. The cabin that we stayed had a trail directly to it. Great stay with Rocky Comfort Cabins and awesome winery.

My husband and I love visiting the blue sky winery! The grounds are gorgeous rolling hills, woods, and a beautiful lake. We enjoy the wines and pizza! During warmer months, we enjoy sitting outside under the colossal umbrellas and listen to live music.

Blue Sky is a nice spot to spend some time on a lazy afternoon when the sun is shining. The views are great and the wine is good too. If you're lucky enough to get there when the crowd is small then you'll have no problem finding a spot to sit. If the weather is inclimate then you can sit... More

The winery is beautiful and so is the landscape. I didn't find this winery as welcoming as others. It had a commercial atmosphere. But go for the scenery.

I had been to this winery once approximately 5 years ago and it hasn't changed much. It is built to accommodate weekend crowds, they charged 3 middle aged guys a glass deposit fee when there were about 10 people there just before closing, and the dark red wine was not good and relatively expensive!

Blue Sky Winery is a first class destination on the wine trail. Even with the establishment crowded, we still enjoyed ourselves. Great wine and band along with beautiful weather and scenery enhanced our Southern Illinois getaway. Highly recommend a visit.

We got a couple of pitchers of sangria and sat outside under an umbrella at a table. We ordered something to eat and enjoyed the scenery. This place is so relaxing.
