Estate Vineyards / AVA

The Fox Valley wine tradition begins at the Faltz Family Vineyard and farm near Sheridan, IL. Vines were first planted in March of 2000, and we now have more than 25 acres of vines situated on the south-facing rocky ledges of the Fox River Valley. Producing the grapes that will become our award winning wines is hard work. The Faltz family, friends, and employees all work together to coax the crop through the long growing season, check for proper chemistry, harvest the grapes when they are ripe, create delicious wines, and finally serve as your hosts in the winery tasting room. Come enjoy the fruits of our labor!
