The Remote Winery In Illinois That’s Picture Perfect For A Day Trip
Take a day trip to the vineyards of Tuscany without getting on a plane or even leaving the state. Instead of another country, you’ll find yourself in a place that bills itself as the “Romance of Italy in the Hills of Southern Illinois.”
No matter which direction you come from, you’ll get to marvel at the scenic Shawnee National Forest that contributes to Blue Sky’s rolling hills. Even out-of-staters can enjoy a fast and fun trip to this gorgeous winery.
Blue Sky Vineyard is located at Shawnee National Forest, 3150 S Rocky Comfort Rd, Makanda, IL 62958.
