“Very rude and unhappy people at this place”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

Terrible service! If you want snarls and dirty looks when you are looking to spend your money, this is the place to go!
Beautiful place! Ugly people!
Great service, happy people and smiles go a long way. A simple thank you makes you feel welcome and appreciated.
It was quite possibly the worst service I have ever experienced.
We rented the facility for an event and every single person who attended was appalled and offended by their behavior and obvious discontent by our presence.
Will never be back. Too many other local wineries too suffer through another experience at this place.
I will advise others to do the same

“Excellent wine, atmosphere okay, service not good.”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

Large variety of wines, in our humble opinion quite good, their descriptions are true. Atmosphere was pleasant, nice large deck, looking over small lake, appeared a bit unloved, could have been the season since it was first weekend in May and not much client traffic. Service just wasn't good, inattentive, slow and not a typical winery where they are trying to make a return customer.

“Gorgeous View, Very Flavorful Wines”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Bella Terra is a bit out of the way, but not far enough to miss out on the excellent wine selection, great food and absolutely gorgeous view. They have a beautiful outdoor wedding location with either rolling hills or a serene pond scene, both equally gorgeous backdrops. Very family friendly, complete with outdoor games.
The food is also very good. I recommend their Chicken Salad sandwich on croissant, made with nuts and house grapes.

“A little off the beaten path but well worth it”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

My wife and I were traveling to Marion, IL and just saw the sign off of Interstate 24. This place is a little off the beaten path, 7 miles off. But it is well worth the trip. The staff is friendly and the place it gorgeous. Too bad it was raining when we visited. The wines are exceptional. I purchased three bottles.

“Yum”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Enjoyed tasting all the Illinois wines. Looks like a great place to have a party. Would have loved to walk the vineyard if it wasn't such a rainy day.
