About Us

Welcome to one of Illinois’ premier boutique wineries! Just west of Chicago, in the Fox River Valley, you have the chance to experience truly unique, fine wines of Illinois! Whether you prefer red, white, dry or sweet, you’ll find the perfect wine for your palate at Fox Valley Winery. So spend a little time with us at our beautiful Fox River Valley location. Sample our wines and judge for yourself. We think you’ll come to understand why our wines are truly loved everywhere. After all, how often do you see someone sipping from a glass of wine without an accompanying smile?

There’s no off-season at our beautiful and inviting tasting room and winery. Please join us for one of our daily tastings and browse our selection of wines. Take time to admire the work of many local artists - we feature wood carvings, quilted items, pottery, paintings, jewelry, wine bottle lamps, and artisan chocolates and cheeses. Spend some time in front of the fireplace or out of the patio, depending on the weather, and relax with friends as you enjoy a glass of wine and delicious artisan cheeses or chocolates. We offer tours of our winemaking facility on weekdays as well as weekends for a fee and by appointment only. We love showing off our state-of-the-art equipment, hand-hewn oak barrels, stainless steel processing tanks, and our high speed bottling line – all part of our commitment to producing excellent wines for your enjoyment.

Fox Valley Winery Vineyard
The Vineyard is located 22 miles southwest of Oswego, IL

The Vineyard

The Fox Valley wine tradition begins at the Faltz Family Vineyard and farm near Sheridan, IL. Vines were first planted in March of 2000, and we now have more than 25 acres of vines situated on the south-facing rocky ledges of the Fox River Valley. Producing the grapes that will become our award winning wines is hard work. The Faltz family, friends, and employees all work together to coax the crop through the long growing season, check for proper chemistry, harvest the grapes when they are ripe, create delicious wines, and finally serve as your hosts in the winery tasting room. Come enjoy the fruits of our labor!
