Alto Vineyards in Champaign's 13th Annual Holiday Open House is Friday, November 30th through Sunday, December 1st! Black Friday is always a mess of chaos, so come to Alto and treat your Black Friday problem with our reds and whites! We'll be sampling all of our wines (as usual!), our hot, mulled Sangria, Ropp cheeses from Normal, IL, and Frontier soups and dips. We'll also have live in the Festival Hall music from Billy Galt (Friday) and The Jeff Helgesen Trio (Saturday) from 1 to 4!
Just in time for the holidays, the Wine of the Month for November is Nona Mia Sangria! Come take advantage
of 15% off two or more bottles! Nona Mia Sangria is not your average sangria, as it has a sweet Chancellor base with orange, lemon, lime and pineapple concentrate added, and is ready to drink. In addition to the heavy citrus notes, this sweet wine has a mellow clove and cinnamon notes on the finish. Equally delicious in the summer over ice mixed with juice and spritzer as warmed and mulled in the winter, Nona Mia Sangria makes an excellent gift!

Alto Vineyards is one of Illinois' oldest and most decorated wineries. From our beginnings, as Guy Renzaglia's retirement dream on a small plot of land in the middle of the Shawnee Hills area in Alto Pass, Illinois, Alto Vineyards has stood for the unique passion and fellowship that wine best delivers. From our first vintage in 1988 to now--with a trophy cabinet full of over 800 national and international awards--our vintner and President, Paul Renzaglia, has continued to hold dear the driving goal of his father, Guy--to grow and use exceptional Illinois grapes to make outstanding wines.
Now, with our second location opening in Champaign in 2001, Alto Vineyards has brought its award-winning wines to Central Illinois. Our Music Among the Vines concert series has been running for over 10 years and become a fixture of the summer event schedule in the area. Offering complimentary, walk-in wine tasting every day, you don't need a reservation at Alto Vineyards--just give us a heads-up if your party is larger than 8 so we can expect you! We also have a large selection of unique and local wine-related gifts, cheeses, and gourmet food. Situated far enough from the city to be a refreshing change from the bar scene and close enough for a quick drive out, there is nowhere like Alto Vineyards Champaign!
Our venue is also available for party, meeting or wedding rentals, and we have ample outdoor and indoor space. If you're interested, download our Rental Info Sheet for more information.
