Nestled among the hills of the Shawnee Wine Trail of Southern Illinois lies Feather Hills Vineyard. A family-owned, boutique winery, our roots date back thirty years to when Gary Orlandini planted his first rows of Chambourcin grapevines. Slowly, as Southern Illinois began to make its mark as a nationally recognized wine growing region, so did the winery. After the unfortunate passing of the original owner, the Feathers’ purchased the property in 2017. Although the vineyard and winery has undergone several changes, the quality and consistency of our wines remain the same. Our passion is hand crafting complex, high-quality wines that all of Illinois can be proud of.
