Sitting on a ridgeline in the Shawnee Hills, you'll find Feather Hills Vineyard & Winery. At almost 900 feet above sea level and with reliably hot summer sun, this is where varietals like Chambourcin, Vignoles, and Cabernet Franc thrive. Owners Randy and Renee Feather have cultivated a niche for themselves, focused on high-quality dry wines that distinguish Feather Hills from other wineries in the state. By incorporating both locally grown and imported grapes from upstate New York, California, and Washington state, Feather Hills has consistently produced award-winning wines for every palate. So, come out and relax on our beautiful estate property, enjoy the tasting room, and experience what sets us apart.
