Whether it’s your fail safe gift for your less-than-favorite cousin, or a limited edition bottle for the connoisseur in your family, wine can fit a lot of different wish lists. Or maybe you need to give a little peace on earth to the most important person this holiday season… you. Stop in Lake County’s Vineyards and wine shops for a moment to yourself and pick up a few bottles for friends and family.
Cozy up to a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon that is as warm and welcoming as the ambiance around you. It’s easy to get lost in a glass of Lynfred Winery’s award winning wines, but don’t get carried away just yet, there’s plenty more to enjoy!
Taste the expertise that goes into the small batched and fortified wines of the Glunz Family Winery and Cellars in Grayslake. Try a new flavor for every season or the award the winning classics that come with over 120 years of wine making experience.
Valentino Vineyards in Long Grove is the place to be for stunning views of 20 leafy acres and a tasting of wines that would make Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, see green. Spend an afternoon sampling 20 wines and might I suggest the cheese plate? They’re available with advanced notice!
