Welcome to Alto Vineyards


Located in the foothills of the beautiful Shawnee National Forest in Alto Pass, we are Southern Illinois’ oldest, most award-winning winery. Since our first vintage in 1988, our wines have won numerous medals in both national and international wine competitions. We take great pride in growing high quality grapes and producing the best possible wines. Enjoy beautiful views from the upstairs Vine Deck, do a tasting in the 5,000 square foot tasting room, or tour the 9 acres of grapevines – perfect for weddings, a party rental, or a weekend visit! Offering around 20 wines, a beer and lunch menu, free wifi and more, visit Alto on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail on Highway 127 in Alto Pass, just 20 minutes from Carbondale.  Our second tasting room in Champaign, Illinois, not far from the University of Illinois campus, opened in December of 2001. Offering all of our wines with tons of beautiful outdoor seating (we’re renovating for more indoor space!) our Champaign location is on North Duncan, right off Highway 57. Cheers!
