On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will reach it’s greatest duration point a few miles south of Carbondale, Illinois. At Alto Vineyards, we are uniquely situated to enjoy a great view of the entire eclipse! Our Solar Celebration is a four-day event leading up to this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We welcome families, friends, couples, and astronomy enthusiasts to come out and listen to some of southern Illinois’ most talented musicians play some good tunes and watch the solar eclipse from our beautiful patio and wine deck. We have an entire weekend celebration planned including food, lawn games, music, and, of course, our award-winning wine!
We will have special-label wine, eclipse viewing glasses, and tee shirts available to purchase, as well as a great line up of bands scheduled every day and special deals on wine and merchandise!
