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!
