Wine Trail from Rustle Hill

Shawnee Hills Wine Trail
The Shawnee Hills Association is made up of some of the original vineyards founded in Southern Illinois, along with several newer members that have joined during the past few years. These locations are primarily found between Lick Creek, Cobden, Alto Pass and Pomona. Be sure to watch for the annual Shawnee Hills Wine Festival which brings these wineries together for one big gathering, typically on Labor Day weekend at various locations. Most recently the festival has taken place in downtown Cobden.

Williamson County / Johnson County

A trip to Windy Hill and Bella T Winery in could be coordinated with nearby wineries in Southern Johnson County for a Southeastern Illinois wine trail experience. Although technically located in Creal Springs, most of which lies in Williamson County,  Windy Hill and Bella T are right up the road from Shawnee Winery in Vienna.  Your easiest route to Windy Hill or Bella T may be to use I-24 Exit 7 near Goreville and Tunnel Hill.  Head east over to Creal Springs Road to make your way north a short distance to either winery.  A northern route could follow of Route 13 through Marion, south on Highway 166 to Creal Springs, then further south on Creal Springs Road.  Make a stop at Windy Hill, then Bella T only a few minutes away.  Then, venture south on Highway 45 toward Vienna to visit Shawnee Winery, then further south on Highway 45 toward Belknap to include Cache River Basin Vineyard.  Visit their on-site Wineaux’s Restaurant to top off a full day of tasting with a fabulous meal.
