Anonymos Tips

During a visit here last summer, I ordered their Sangria, which appeared to be stored somewhere behind the checkout counter. The owners apparently have their large dog to move around freely and unleashed in the same area. The Sangria contained hair (probably shed from the dog), which the lady at the counter promptly offered to have replaced and apologized. However, the replacement also had the same issue. Although not intentional, this is not an experience I was expecting to have at a well-reputed winery and diminishes my confidence is visiting the next time.

This is THE winery on the Shawnee wine trail for dry wines. Great flavor profiles and good complexity. This place is also a hidden gem. No commercials vibes. Tucked away with great views, setup invites you to lounge, saw a picnic welcome sign. Will definitely come back to drink and picnic here.

Great wine and lovely setting to enjoy it in! I would definitely go back. Near the National Shawnee Forest in Illinois it is off the beaten path and so relaxing!

A very calm and relaxing atmosphere with nice views. Wine flights were an affordable and fun way to taste several wines. Our sommeliers were very knowledgeable, kind and friendly! Our favorite wine was the Norton.

A nice venue to stop for a few wines. Relaxing setting, restricted service due to COVID-19, but they had a good fruity wine, which I like

Emmett Arnold

Beautiful scenery, serene atmosphere, excellent customer service, and Superior wine these are just a few descriptions that come to mind when I think of this absolutely wondrous place. The owners, Ron and Sylvia, are both foundations of necessity to the charm and splendor of this place. Whether you're there to enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking beautiful vineyards, or to sit around campfire on a chilly evening with some friends, both can be done while enjoying award-winning wines. This place is a must visit anytime I'm near it.

I can’t possibly say enough about Sylvia, Ron and Hickory Ridge Winery and Vineyard. All of their wines are amazing!From their Norton,The Other Side, Widow’s Kiss to Hankies you can’t go wrong. And Sylvia makes a fantastic Sangria! The view of their Vineyard is beautiful, serene, tranquil. Ron and Sylvia themselves are among the nicest, coolest people I’ve ever met. Picnic and Dog friendly. A treasure!

Best dry wines with a beautiful view. We travel 3hrs. for these great wines. So make sure you stock up or you'll be sorry. They also have some sweet wine so don't skip this winery.

What a peaceful location with delicious wine (all from estate grown grapes). Highly recommended for those looking for a chill experience off the beaten path! A true gem representing the best parts of southern Illinois.
