Explore Shawnee Forest Country!
The Renzaglia Family welcomes you to Alto Vineyards and invites you to taste some of the finest wines produced in the United States. Our family-owned winery and vineyard is located in the foothills of the beautiful Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois.
Over 30 years ago, Paul Renzaglia never would have thought that a family venture would have such a profound effect on Southern Illinois and its community. From the very first plantings in 1982, the Renzaglia family and Alto Vineyards were committed to introducing a new industry to the region. Since then, Alto Vineyards has won over 500 National and International awards in wine competitions.
In addition to wine, Alto Vineyards serves both domestic and craft beers (and beer bucket options, too), a non-alcoholic mocktail list, and a light lunch menu with a few appetizers, personal flatbread pizzas, and a few seasonal specialty plates during all open hours.
There are great deals on wine and pita pizzas for Happy Hour every Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday from 2-5pm. Get $1 off the purchase of a glass of wine or bottle of beer and, if you buy a bottle of wine, you can get 1/2 off a pita pizza. And with free wifi, it’s perfect for study sessions or meetings. See you at Alto!
