The wineries are sending in their applications as we speak – it’s going to be another great time. So far we have 9 wineries – 5 returning from last year (Vahling Vineyards, Fox Creek Vineyards, Waterman Winery, Hailey’s Winery and Willett’s Winery) and 4 new wineries (Cooper’s Hawks Winery, Pheasant Hollow Winery, Lavender Crest and Castle Finn Winery). Art Jackson, chef and owner of Pleasant House Bakery in Chicago will be here again providing food for purchase. He had great reviews from last year and even ran out of food!!! Tasting under the Oaks starts at 12noon and will go until 8:00pm at Plowman’s Park on Saturday June 22nd. Parking and entrance to the festival are free. Wine-tasting wristbands are $15 and include a souvenir wine glass and five tastings. Additional tickets for the tastings can be purchased for $1 each and will be sold until 7:30pm. Patrons wishing to participate in the wine tasting must be 21 years or older with a valid ID.
