Expanded Tasting Room News

Tasting Room Floor PlanThis is the place to be for news on what to expect in our newly expanded Tasting Room! It's going to be absolutely, positively fantastic, and we just can't wait until all the construction is done. So what do all those little lines and arrows mean in the floor plan above?


More Room for your Bubbly Enjoyment

The whirr of a saw, the beat of a hammer, the buzz of a drill. It's expansion time at the Tasting Room! We are knocking down the walls between the Tasting Room and the building next door and will soon have more room for you to sit back and enjoy a glass of bubbly! 


Polar Vortex? Siberian Express? No Problem!

The last two winters have been brutal here in Illinois. You can call it "Polar Vortex" or "Siberian Express" or whatever crazy term the weatherman decides to throw at us that day. All we know is that it is darn cold! So how do our grapes fare is these frigid temps? They are nicknamed "The Polar Bear Gang" so they say bring it on Mother Nature.


@bubblywenzel does it again . . .

Mark Wenzel Winemaker of the year

It doesn't get too much more awesome than this. For the second year in a row, our own Mark Wenzel (aka @bubblywenzel on twitter) was named "Enologist of the Year" by the Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Association! 


4/11 - Taste of Mardi Gras - Co. Club Exclusive!

Mardi Gras

On Saturday, April 11, we're teaming up with Cajun Connection to bring "Taste of Mardi Gras" to our Co. Club and Insider Wine Club Members.  Come for the bubbly, stay for the food, and marvel at the awesome that is Cajun Ron.  



Wow! Amazing! We were so excited to hear that our very own Franken's received the highest honor awarded at the 2015 Illinois State Fair Wine Competition - BEST OF SHOW! And as if that wasn't super exciting enough, we also found out that Illinois Sparkling Co. and August Hill Winery received a total of four out of the top nine awards.


On July 27, from 4-7 pm, we will be at Whole Foods Lincoln Park, tasting out some yummy Illinois bubbly.
