This was our second time at Clark's Run. Both times were able to find wines we liked and loved there. That only happened because our servers was knowledgeable of the wines they have and matched them to our tasting preferences. They sell a variety of wines from vineyards. Places from Illinois as well as other places in the country and around the world.

They also have whiskey tastings and sell beer if you are not into wines.

We will definitely stop in again when in Utica.

This was a wonderful place! There were so many wines to choose from from all over the place. The bartender Cindy was so knowledgeable and generous with the pours! She helped us to discover a new part of our palates and expand our wine preferences. It was so fun! Definitely worth the stop there!

The wine tasting was fun, informative & excellent! There was a very good variety of wine choices and we came away with a few bottles to enjoy. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable inside and also offers a nice patio outside. It is attached to a great antique and gift shop that was fun to browse around in. This was a very enjoyable stop while we were visiting the Starved Rock area.

Our group went in to check this out and to our surprise it was a beautiful place with lots of room to bring a group for a tasting. Every time we visit there the owner greets us warmly. Everyone there seemed to enjoy the atmosphere. Did not have time to stay and taste, but we will be back.

This was our first time to visit Utica and we just happened to pop into Clarks Run Creek Gifts and Wine Tasting while waiting to meet up with friends. Cindy invited us to enjoy the wine tasting and we chose 5 wines to sample for $6. She was very informative, friendly and so much fun to chat with. She shared her knowledge of the area with us, which we very much appreciated. The decor in the building is very unique and inspiring and the wines were good. We will definitely be recommending this place to friends.

Cindy was the best! She made this tasting so much fun and had great advice on what wines to try. We spent over a hour here just chatting and having fun. Left with some great wine, including lemon wine which was surprisingly awesome. We would definitely stop here again not just for the wine but the great company.

Stopped in for the wine tasting. Found they have craft beer also. Sorry to say I don't remember the mans name that helped us. He was excellent. It wasn't very busy on a Sunday early afternoon but it was getting busier as we left. You get 5 tastings for $5 but he gave us more. Once we did the tasting he brought out a 4 pack of wines to try. I believe they were original, lemon, lemongrass and cranberry. The 4 pack sells for $20 and you can mix and match whatever flavors you want. Wasn't a fan of the cranberry and then he added orange juice to it. Yum! We ended up buying the 4 pack. Will go back.

We stopped in to taste some wines. Cindy was a hoot. It was five tastings for $5. Cindy was so enthusiastic we actually got to taste seven or eight wines! She was such a great salesperson we left with more than we bargained for. I would recommend this Wine shop for its Ambience and character.

When you first walk in you are welcomed and encouraged to step up to the bar to start a wine tasting. All of the wines were tasty and the staff was fun and friendly. Very knowledgeable about the wine. The upstairs is a boutique like shop. There are not an abundance of items to look at or buy, but the few things are fun and cute. Definitely will be returning!
