Hedman Winery

Surround yourself with the musky woodland aesthetic of the Scandinavian-esque Hedman Vineyards located in the small town of Alto Pass and surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest. Situated just 16 miles south of the town of Carbondale, the Hedman Vineyards is where you get the chance to pair gourmet food with tasty estate bottled Southern Illinois wine.

After falling in love with the area 22 years ago, Anders and Gerd Hedman decided to bring over the hospitality of Sweden over to the Southern Illinois wine trail. Eventually, after working their way up in the town of Alto Pass, the Anders and Gerd opened the Hedman winery in 2005. Since then, the couple has seen their family grow up and have served travelers and tourists from all walks of life. Guests are prone to lounge in their comfortable deck and relax with a wine glass in their hand and the beautiful view of the wildlife of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail in front of them.

One of the most enjoyable things to do when visiting the Hedman Vineyards is to enjoy a mouthwatering meal at the Peach Barn Café which is host to more than a dozen Swedish dishes. You can pair up your meal with one of the finest wines Hedman wineries has to offer. This local, family-owned business is known for their fresh, self-grown grapes and peaches. If you feel like downing a glass of a luscious, deep red wine then opt for the Norton which will highlight any meal. Or if you are in the mood for something sweet, then maybe the fruity combination of the Peach Dessert Wine would be more up your alley.

After a nice, relaxing meal, you can even visit the Scandinavian gift shop in the estate to bring home a souvenir of your choice. Authenticity and culinary vision of the highest order, the Hedman Vineyards and Winery is certain to make you fall in love with the European culture, all the while sitting in one of the best wineries in Southern Illinois.
