Summer in the ISC Vineyard

The vineyard in the summer. It's a beautiful place and you can see changes happening every day. From now until harvest, we closely monitor all kinds of stuff to make sure the grapes stay healthy. Mark Wenzel, our winemaker extraordinaire tells us all about it . . 


Wine and Music Pairing

Illinois Sparkling Co Stereo and music

Have you ever noticed the recommended "music pairing" on your Co. Club newsletters or our Illinois Sparkling Co. spec sheets? Do you wonder how in the world we come up with that stuff? Well, we do so love experimenting at Illinois Sparkling Co., but there really is a method behind the madness when pairing wine and music.  



A medley of grapes were used to make the newest magnum-sized versions of Ensemble sparkling wine. And the results are two sparklers whose magnitude just couldn’t be contained in a regular 750 mL bottle.


Do you have a bit of Sherlock Holmes or Nancy Drew in you? Here's your chance to show off your mystery-solving talents. Join winemaker, Mark Wenzel, and the rest of the Illinois Sparkling Co./August Hill Winery crew as we gather at the Winery and Caves for a night filled with laughter and fun.
