Is there anything more classic than the perfect wine paired with the right cheese?  Join us for a fun-filled weekend of cheese infused dishes that showcase how cheese can play the perfect supporting role to our award-winning wines.  This is a great weekend to explore different styles of Illinois wine with many different, delicious and comforting cheese/cheese infused dishes.

How it Works: Pre-purchase your ticket online and select your starting point.  The first winery that you visit will give you a souvenir wine glass and your tasting ticket.  Bring your ticket to each location along the trail to enjoy your pairings.  Leave your completed/stamped tasting ticket at the last winery visited to be entered in a drawing for a chance to win great prizes along the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail including overnight stays, discount coupons and more.
