Music in the Vineyard-
* please see the current IDPH guidelines we are using on this page for our live music dates.
From June through September – We host live music in the vineyard 7-11 pm and it is $5 per person at the gate, children under 12 free.
WE DO NOT allow outside beverages of any kind since we sell wine, beer, soda and water. So no beverages, with or without alcohol. Most music nights are well attended so it is always a good idea to bring your own lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on. Reserved seating is available for an additional $5 per person plus tax, it is reserved by calling ahead and is done on a first come first serve basis.
Again, there are some evenings that all seating may be reserved so please always bring a lawn chair or blanket for lawn seating. Summer & Fall! Bands are listed by date on the Upcoming Events page. See you soon!
Pets- we love our pets too but we ask that you do not bring dogs, cats or other pets to our property.
Please READ our current operating procedures below
GOOD NEWS: We can be OPEN!! These are the “Restore Illinois guidelines “for reopening of our outdoor seating and lawn spaces given by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Please cooperate so we can stay open.
Our staff (DOING OUR PART): We will wear masks when serving you, wash our hands frequently and wear gloves when needed. We are cleaning per the CDC guidelines for COVID 19 and are doing our best to keep our staff and guest areas clean and sanitary. We are glad to see you and will be smiling behind our masks even though you may not see it.
DOING YOUR PART (Thank you in advance): The current guidelines allow us to be open using our outdoor spaces and have live music and are shown below :
Guests must wear face masks covering their nose and mouth so we can all be together and keep our business open…
- when in serving lines
- when in multi stall restrooms
- If you are less than 6 feet away from other people..
- Groups of 6 or less people must sit 6’ away from other groups of 6 or less people in all areas.
Also- ** Please wash your hands for 20 seconds and get them nice & soapy! We have hand sanitizer at the bars too.
MASKS OFF AREA: People can take off their masks to eat and drink within their group seating area of six or less people in our outdoor spaces, patios, porches, decks and yard.

Drink Service during Live Music 6-11 pm: From 6-11 pm during live music the bar service areas we will use are: the tasting room bar and the additional two outdoor bar serving areas, giving us three bar service areas to allow for better social distancing. All Drinks must be taken to your outdoor seating area for consumption there is no indoor seating. NO WINE TASTING 6-11pm. Wine sales by the bottle or glass, disposable cups will be provided for wine.

RESTROOMS: Multi stall restrooms will have signage that no more than six people or less depending on size can be inside at one time. Our staff will be available to clean and monitor areas throughout the evening for cleanliness.
**We are hopeful that we will be able to reopen our Dance floor this summer but not sure when that can happen. You will know as soon as we do.**
DANCE FLOOR: We will not have the dance floor open to allow the bands to space out more when performing for their own social distancing. STANDING AND CONGREGATING AROUND THE BAND AREA IS NOT ALLOWED. If you just have to dance do so in your seating area.
LAWN SEATING AREA: The yard area seating is open seating but groups are limited to NO MORE THAN 6 people per group seating area. We will have the yard marked with stakes or paint showing areas 12’ apart to gauge where to sit with your group for social distancing. Our staff will be available to help with questions about yard seating. If you come with more than 6 people please sit in adjacent areas of 6 people each.
Thank you- My family, staff and I are so glad to have everyone visit and be able to enjoy our wines in our outdoor spaces. I know some of these things might be difficult at first but we really need to follow these guidelines and we want to get through the IDPH phases successfully and safely just like you do and move on to less restrictions. Thank you for your help in following these guidelines so we can continue to stay open to serve you and move to a less restrictive phase hopefully soon. Thank you- Diane, our family and staff
