Tasting Room


August Hill Winery & Illinois Sparkling Co. Tasting Room
106 Mill Street, Utica, Illinois  (815) 667-5211

Come enjoy individual creations conceived in the heart and expressed through the hand in our tasting room located in downtown Utica.

Enjoy tastings of our wines and purchase a glass, a bottle, or even a case of wine to share with friends and family. We have three sections in our Tasting Room for your enjoyment. The tasting bar area is where we offer wine tastings. The Lounge is our newest area. Whether you are looking for a table for two or an area for a large or small group, our lounge area can accommodate you with its comfortable modular seating. Our three-season patio is the third area. Weather permitting, you can enjoy your favorite AHW and/or ISC wines while relaxing on the patio. We also have some wonderful new food items available in The Lounge including a chocolate sampler, bread and dipping oil, or 'The Plate' - a variety of items that pair nicely with wine: three types of cheese, plus prosciutto, salami, gourmet flatbread crackers, cluster of grapes, almonds, and olives.

If you have a large group or a bus, please call us ahead of time so we can make sure we have adequate staff to make your visit is enjoyable. We hope you will join us soon so that you can see and taste for yourself why we are so proud of August Hill Winery! Take a look and enjoy all of our individual creations presented within the tasting room, including vibrant hand-blown glassware, exuberant and vivid abstract paintings, woodworking, pottery, jewelry, cheeses, chocolates and more.  

**Please note that our lounge is a "21 and over" area.**
