Very helpful and interested staff. Beautiful site. We sent photos to our daughters of a wedding taking place outside. We want to come back soon. What a venue? We each bought a case of wine! Don't miss it.

Passing through and saw the sign off the highway. If my husband was'nt driving the speed of light, I could have heeded the reviews. Fair warning on the microwave use, pizza comes from a package. Only good wine was a dry white. No top shelf liquor or craft beers. Winery needs an upgrade all around.

Although the atmosphere was somewhat OK, I do not recommend this winery at all. The service was terrible.The gal at counter acted like she was put out to have people show up, which weren't many. The Sangrias tasted like Tang or Kool-aid.... Wine selection very minimal and disappointing.

Don't leave this place without trying the Sangria!!! I am not a sweet wine drinker but it is wonderful! I am from the St Louis area & have been here several times while hiking & camping in S. IL! It is a gorgeous place & you will have a wonderful time! Also has a place to stay with rvs!!

Terrible service! If you want snarls and dirty looks when you are looking to spend your money, this is the place to go! Beautiful place! Ugly people! Great service, happy people and smiles go a long way. A simple thank you makes you feel welcome and appreciated. It was quite possibly the worst service I have ever experienced. We rented... More

Large variety of wines, in our humble opinion quite good, their descriptions are true. Atmosphere was pleasant, nice large deck, looking over small lake, appeared a bit unloved, could have been the season since it was first weekend in May and not much client traffic. Service just wasn't good, inattentive, slow and not a typical winery where they are trying... More

Bella Terra is a bit out of the way, but not far enough to miss out on the excellent wine selection, great food and absolutely gorgeous view. They have a beautiful outdoor wedding location with either rolling hills or a serene pond scene, both equally gorgeous backdrops. Very family friendly, complete with outdoor games. The food is also very good.... More

My wife and I were traveling to Marion, IL and just saw the sign off of Interstate 24. This place is a little off the beaten path, 7 miles off. But it is well worth the trip. The staff is friendly and the place it gorgeous. Too bad it was raining when we visited. The wines are exceptional. I purchased... More

Enjoyed tasting all the Illinois wines. Looks like a great place to have a party. Would have loved to walk the vineyard if it wasn't such a rainy day.

Bella Terra was described to us as "for locals" - inexpensive and with fun activities like bocce ball. We were the only customers there on a Thursday afternoon, and we were fully entertained by the staff. The winery is beautiful, the wines good, and the ambiance fun and comfortable. Had a great time!
