The Wine list above begins with our driest wines and ends with our sweetest wines.

West of Wise Winery produces all of our wine on site (destem, crush, press, ferment, and bottle) and grows the majority of our own grapes at Ratio Vineyards in Kilbourne, Illinois.  All other grapes are from local vineyards. Therefore we do have seasonal options and sometimes sell out of a particular wine for the year until the next harvest. Please be patient with us as we strive to bring you only the best, and most local wine we can.
