I LOVE your Water Valley White wine. It is amazing. I just wish they sold it somewhere closer to chicagoland :(
Such good wine!!!

Bought a bottle of 2001 Owl's Leap Illinois Dry Table Wine back in 2005 when visiting the area (I grew up in Bunker Hill). Just opened it August 2010. Very good!! I drink a lot of California wine and very impressed by this vintage.

Spent 3 days in the Shawnee area and are SO glad we stopped. The information and congeniality of your staff was outstanding. Have 2 bottles - a peach that I plan to serve over homemade ice cream with pecans and a lovely red concord. We rarely get sweet wines, preferring dry for meals, but these were too good to pass up. And knowing we can get your wines in the Chicago area is a big plus.

We just got back from Giant City last week and we visited your vineyard. The service was warm and my family got a kick out of the tricks your australian shephard did for us! Even though you didn't have anymore of the Bald Knob Red, we left from our visit very satisified. I went crazy for your Bald Knob Red when I had it at the Giant City Lodge! The Giant City Lodge had the last two bottles and I bought them both! You are on our list to see/buy from again! I also told my story to a few friends, I am trying to convince them to visit! Thanks for making our visit to the Shawnee National Forest that much better!

We just came down for vacation on Lake of Egypt. We did 4 wineries. Yours blew every other out of the water. I graduated from SIU in 04' and I'm kicking myself for not heading out by your wine on a monthly basis. The group I brought down is now addicted to your wines. They are first timers to the area. We are tying to figure out how to get down there to get more wine for the cold winters up here. Keep up the good work, and don't change a thing. Your hospitality and warming attitudes are a treat to wine lovers. We look forward to seeing you soon.
