Blue Sky is one of the nicer Illinois wineries I've visited. The pizza was excellent! If you are visiting the wine trail this one should be a destination.

A beautiful and peaceful setting for this winery. It has very nice landscaping. The vineyards are very well kept, also.

Went here for a friend's birthday and loved it. It was a beautiful day to go. We just listen to a local band. We could just relax and be outside in the country.

It's part of Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, http://www.shawneewinetrail.com/. Also has a couple of B&B rooms, but I would only be reviewing their food.
