Based on another review, we were expecting a bit more involvement with the wine tasting experience. However, we visited on a Wednesday afternoon and the place was empty. The staff were friendly and offered the full tasting (6 wines for $5 and you keep the wine glass) or just three complimentary wines. The place is beautiful inside and out. They have entertainment on certain nights. We wish we could stay longer and return for dinner and entertainment (if we get back to Effingham, IL, this will be on my itinerary!). We did buy a couple of bottles of the wine we tasted and the price was great.
