Wineries & Vineyards

With a 30-mile panoramic view, the lovely Mackinaw Valley Vineyard lies near Peoria, in Mackinaw, Illinois. It features 86 acres, and more than 20 wines made from French American hybrids and native grapes. Several wines have won bronze and silver medals at the New York Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, and the Illinois State Fair Wine Competition. Taste three samples for no charge and return for The International Music, Wine and Craft Beer Festival on Memorial Day weekend.

Just a few miles west of downtown Peoria sits the lovely Kickapoo Creek Winery on 14 acres of rolling land. Walk the trails, explore the vineyard and do a unique tasting of their specialty wines. Plan a trip around one of their special events or plan a festive wedding or special event on the property.
