Featured Illinois Manufacturer:
Fox Creek Vineyards
About Company   Olney, IL  

Fox Creek Vineyards Company is a small, family owned and operated winery with our own modest vineyard. We are dedicated to using Illinois- grown grapes, fruit, and berries. Our wine making is based on simple time-tested methods used by the old masters of wine making.


We are located in the Southeastern Illinois countryside amid the low rolling hills of the old orchard country of Richland county. Once the center of the apple and peach growing industry, this area is ideal for the growing of French-American hybrid wine grapes.


Our top products include: Hearthside II, Blackberry Cheer, Deer Farm White, Deep Purple, Golden Fox, and Deer Farm Red.


Our products are currently sold through our tasting room, wine fests and directly to retailers.
