At Feather Hills Vineyard, we believe in offering more than just wine. We are a celebration of nature and the warm, inviting spirit of the Shawnee Hills. Eat at our restaurant, Fork and Vine. Sip on terroir inspired wines, and Stay in one of our luxury cabins while experiencing all that Southern Illinois has to offer.
The tale of Feather Hills Vineyard isn't just about wines; it's about passion, love, and a shared dream.
On a cool spring evening with Walking in Memphis playing over the radio, Randy took Renee on a date that would mark the beginning of their shared journey. With the top of his jeep rolled down and the wind playfully teasing Renee's hair, there was a special bottle of homemade wine in the back seat - a testament to Randy's love for winemaking and, perhaps, a symbol of the joy-filled days ahead.
As the duo traveled through life's many vineyards, they discovered a shared passion for wines that echo the essence of their terroir. And in that love, they realized a dream - to create wines that captured the heart and spirit of Shawnee Hills AVA.
In 2017, with dreams in their eyes and a vision in their hearts, Randy & Renee bought the land where they currently reside. It was a land that whispered tales of rich soils and old vines, a land that beckoned them with its raw beauty. And just like that, in 2018, amidst the rolling landscapes and under the watchful eyes of the Shawnee Hills, Feather Hills was born.
