We have been enjoying your wine for almost 2 years now and have always had an amazing experience! Great wine, great atmosphere, great staff, great everything!

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.

The Northern Illinois Wine Trail was one of my favorite winetrails to visit while vacationing!

Hello from Canada! My wife and I recently visited friends in northern Illinois and had the pleasure of attending a Wine Down at Prairie State Winery. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed your wine. We even purchased several bottles to take home with us!

My girlfriends and I LOVE your wines so much we have stopped buying any other brands! Thank you and keep up the good work - we look forward to many years ahead visiting you and enjoying your wines.

We visited six wineries on our Northern Illinois Wine Trail trip. Yours was one of the best!
