ATTENTION: Starting in July, our Sycamore Tasting Room (Prairie on State Wine Cellars) will be closed Monday through Wednesday each week. This change is due to an increase in production; By pulling staff to our bottling and production facilities, we will be able to produce quicker and more efficient results (which means more of your favorite wines)! We will still be open seven days a week in Genoa (Prairie State Winery), so if you're in need of some delicious PSW wine we're just a little ways up Rt. 23!



September 3-Course Pairing will be on the 24th with seatings from noon until 7 pm.
