Overview

There is no better way to experience wine than right here from the source. After a tasting, you can enjoy a glass or bottle of wine, craft beer or soda, plus local cheeses while browsing the gift shop, quizzing the wino staff, or just relaxing inside or outdoors. Guests may bring a picnic & take advantage of the board games in the tasting room. We love to show our friends the winery and talk about the wine making process. Private tours & tastings are available for large and small groups, ranging from $5 to $15 per person. Sleepy Creek is a great destination to meet friends and socialize. We feature live music by original singers and songwriters, comedy, film festivals, plays & other unique entertainment. Sleepy Creek now hosts a B & W: Its like a Bed and Breakfast, but the only thing we make here is Wine, but there is a full kitchen to make what you want, when you want, and we provide the wine. Stop in to give it a look-it's a great place to have friends and family stay when you "just can't fit them" in your house.

The gentleman serving us was both friendly and informative. I sampled many of the wines, and all were delicious. I especially enjoyed the sangria and the peach/blueberry pomegranate slushy! Both were so refreshing on a warm muggy day! The building out back is coming along...More

Tried 12 wines. All are Sweetish. The girl serving us was very distracted. Didn't get to hear anything about the wines. Cool place for events. Greeter is a cat, very fun.

My wife and I actually had our wedding here. Very small venue, but under new ownership. I believe they are trying to be more open to events. They have several varieties of wines and wine slushies. They also sell some Artisanal cheeses and other items....More

This is a great little hideaway in rural Illinois. Excellent wine and entertainment. The new owners have taken this place to the next level.
