Located only ten minutes away from the Southern Illinois University, Kite Hill Vineyards is the proud boutique winery and bed and breakfast spanned out on twenty six beautiful acres. Kite Hill Vineyards proudly refer to themselves on being “a little bit of heaven off Route 127.” And heavenly it truly is; not only does Kite Hill Vineyards presents an absolutely beautiful place to stay along with delicious award winning wines, but Mother Nature has done it a great job of blessing it with greenery and a sparkling pond. It is the perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway.
With a name perfectly fit for a tasting room, Kite Hill Vineyards’ “The Palate” is full of wines that are sure to complement any ravishing dish that you decide to try out. A trip to the Palate will leave you more than satisfied when you feast your eyes on the delicious wines in front of you such as the rich and vibrant Late Harvest Chardonel. Or perhaps you would want to sit back and relax on the deck with a glass of the Pink Kite, the wine most certain to relax and take your mind off of things.
After a hearty dinner, you may want to turn in for the night and wake up in one of the best bed and breakfast inns in the Shawnee Hills wine trail. You can start your day off with a three course breakfast, and maybe have one of our employees show you around the vineyard or the gorgeous lake after your meal. Perhaps you are in the mood for some nice music, so worry not, because Kite Hill Vineyards is one of the few wineries in Southern Illinois that to organize multiple events in one year. You are bound to catch a musical act live to go along with your delicious red wine. With such sights and sounds, you would be a fool to not experience this in your lifetime!
