POMONA WINERY: OUR STORY

Wines made from locally grown fruits

Specializing in wines made from locally grown fruits other than grapes, we offer seven table wines and three fortified dessert wines, each of which has received multiple awards and honors in regional, national, and international judgings. We are pleased to announce the 2016 awards, including the best Illinois dessert wine for our Strawberry wine.

Enjoy a beautiful drive through the Shawnee National Forest, taste exceptional non grape wines, and savor the wooded setting from our covered decks or the garden picnic area. We look forward to welcoming you to our winery on your next trip to Southern Illinois’ Shawnee Hills Wine Trail.
