Nauvoo Wine and Nauvoo Blue Cheese are my favorites. They probably don’t exist anymore!
Old Bakery Beer in Alton, IL offers a great variety of ales, stouts, porters & beers! Their Octoberfest bier which should be available soon is one of the best beers in StL metro area during the Fall! Their fare is also very good! Their Ruben, Cuban, & Burgers are flavorful & filling. The staff are very helpful & know their products very well! I recommend ordering a couple of flights.
Beautiful Bldg/grounds. Makanda IL
Fun stop. Good beer and food
Nauvoo Blue Cheese—miss it now!
We try to make our way to the bluffs yearly and enjoy some great wine & nibbles while there. We love Aerie’s Winery, Grafton Winery & the Loading Dock.
The Potosi Brewery not only hosts the National Beer Museum, they also serve up deep fried green beans. And they were AWESOME! Check it out.
Oh what a sweet and unique venue with some absolutely fantastic wines! Whether red or white, dry or sweet you can’t go wrong here! Loved tasting several different “flavors”, hearing the story of the winery, perusing the little shops inside and most of all meeting some awesome Iowans! 2 Favorites: Kid Sister and Reminisce !
The ONLY way to explore the grounds of Oak Alley
