5 Rockford Area Wineries Perfect for a Summer Day or Night

I can think of almost nothing better than some wine, a Summer breeze and someone lovely to share that wine with you.

So many flavors, so many great people devoted to the craft and so much good weather in front of us. A couple of these wineries are a short drive from Rockford, but well worth it.


McEchran Homestead Winery 1917 Wyman School Rd Caledonia, IL

My girlfriend and I visited this winery just the other day. Such a great story behind this wonderful place. We tasted every wine they make and bought several bottles. When you visit, make sure you try the wine slushies. Trust me.
