Local wine lovers probably know Illinois is blessed with some amazing wineries, but did you know a few of the state's top 10 are right here in the Stateline?!?

In my younger days I was a beer girl, but as the years tack on I'm gaining much more appreciation for a nice glass of wine. I am far from a wine aficionado; my palate is only refined enough to appreciate a sweet wine that doesn't give me a headache. I've got a long way to go in my wine journey, but thanks to besthingsil.com, I now know the Illinois wineries I need to begin my serious wine loving research at.

Which of these top 10 Illinois wineries are your favorites?
