Thank you so much for being patient with us while we negotiate so many changes during the pandemic. You have all been so amazing! We love having each and every one of you in the Prairie State family. 

Getting back to "normal" is a very slow process, as you know, but it will be worth the wait! We are in the beginning stages of our patio expansion and are planning to have it all finished by spring for you to enjoy all spring, summer and fall! The expansion will double the size of our current patio and will allow for larger groups and less waiting time for a table. Before you know it, you will be out there listening to live music again, eating paninis and flatbreads, and drinking your favorite Prairie State wine! 

In the mean time, we would like to get you in and out of the cold! Starting February 1st, we will invite 10 customers inside at a time to shop for bottles and speak with our knowledgeable staff about your selections! We are thrilled to be able to start interacting more with you again and make shopping for wine a more personal experience. 

For the safety of you, and our staff, we are asking you to limit your shopping experience to 15 minutes. There will be no tastings available at this time and the kitchen will remain closed for indoor dining. However, our Heat and Eat dinners will continue until the patio reopens in the spring! 

We are so excited to see things moving in the right direction and are grateful for your support along the way! 

No tasting or indoor dining at this time.

Please call us to place a pick up order! 815-784-4540

Groupons are not currently being accepted. Expired Groupons will be accepted in the spring.


About us:

Prairie State Winery was established in 1998 by former high school teachers Rick and Maria Mamoser. They were 1 of only 16 wineries operating in Illinois at that time—now there are over 100! Prairie State Winery's goal has always been to craft the highest quality wines and to have the friendliest tasting room staff in the industry. Over the years we have garnered 3 Best of Shows, 3 Governor's Cups, and numerous Best of Class and Gold Medals. Most importantly, the sentiment from our many loyal customers and newcomers alike leads us to believe we are meeting our goals!

Come see what all the buzz is about! We promise, it's worth the trip!

Our mission is to be good stewards of the land, the grape, the community...
