Honker Hill

A place for family, friends, live music, and great wine!

Welcome to Honker Hill Winery. We take pride in the fact that all of our fine wines are produced from fruit grown directly at our vineyard. A mainstay of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, our winery is located on the highest point in Williamson County and surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest. Relax with friends and family, while listening to live entertainment in our cozy tasting room, observe nature from our outdoor fireplace and gazebo; or enjoy a stroll around our pond, while sipping on a glass of your favorite wine or sangria. 

Our goal is to be a fun and engaging location for the entire family. With acres upon acres of land, our weekends are filled with adults laughing and listening to the area’s best live music and kids playing and running in the green grass. At Honker Hill, everyone will have a great time!

Our Wines

The best in Southern Illinois

Honker Hill Red (Sweet Red)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

Like taking a bite from a juicy plum. The stone fruit and honey shine through this pure Chambourcin vintage. No dinner is complete unless you finish the night with this estate-grown wine. $5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case.

Goose Juice (Sweet Red)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

This flavorful wine is a blend of our Villard and Chambourcin grapes, to bring out the best of both. The sweetness and smoothness of the Villard blended with the full body and bright notes of the Chambourcin. Together they make a special taste experience.

2013 Villard Blanc (Sweet White)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

Villard Blanc is a French Hybrid that produces clusters of fruit bursting with rich flavor to please the palate. Notes of warm spice are in the finish of this delightful wine.

Villard Blanc (Dry White)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

Exotic fruits are found here. Banana and papaya are at the forefront allowing us to keep this white dry, separating it in style from many of our sweeter varieties.

Don’s Estate (Dry White)
$5.00 Glass, $16.00 Bottle, $192.00 Case

Our Vignole great has produced an exceptionally crisp dry white wine. This has quickly become a favorite.

Wally’s Red (Dry Red)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

Chambourcin grapes aged with oak making this a perfect dry wine.

Wally’s Reserve (Dry Red)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

Chambourcin is the most widely grown grape in Southern Illinois. Serving it in this dry style allows the natural characteristic of the wine to come through. Dark black cherry with hints of spice.

Woody Red (Semi-Sweet)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

Chambourcin wine blended to be a perfect step up from our dryer red wines.

Honker Hill Blush (Semi-Sweet)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

White peach and strawberry notes lead this wine into a well-balanced mineral finish. The acid in this vintage keeps your palette refreshed sip after sip.

Eclipse (Semi-Sweet Riesling)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $204 Case

The Riesling wine is produced from grapes grown in Michigan, which develops the flavors of delicious apple and bright citric fruits with a touch of pear.

Honker Hill Red (Semi-Sweet Red)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

This beautiful ruby red wine comes from leaving the grapes on the vines until the sun gives their perfect color. Hence, giving this wine notes rich cranberry with a touch of exotic spice.

Goose Juice (Semi-Sweet Red)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

This blush is full of late summer fruit flavors, including fresh squeezed apple juice and watermelon. Best served chilled on the patio.

Villard Blanc (Semi-Sweet White)
$5 Glass, $16 Bottle, $192 Case

Our semi-sweet Villard Blanc has a strong flora bouquet that can be found in the tip of your tongue. Notice this bright and crisp wine holds hints of honey dew.

Honker Hill Blackberry
While Supplies Last

Amazing blackberry wine made with locally sourced blackberries.

Blue Winged Teal (Sweet Blueberry)
$20 Bottle, $240 Case

This exceptional wine produced with local blueberries is a crowd pleaser! Once it flies in for the season it sells out fast!
