I just wanted to reach out to you to tell you Thank You for making my birthday celebration so much fun. Visiting your winery and enjoying your wines and hospitality with my friends was a truly fun and unforgettable experience.

I cannot even begin to thank you enough for Saturday. My friends and I had the BEST TIME and we cannot stop talking about it. I mean it when I say that visiting your winery was a smash hit and we will be coming back again and again!

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful day on the Northern Illinois Wine Trail yesterday. We all had a great time and loved the wineries. It was such a nice treat to get out of the city for the day.
