Take a look at all of the wineries available through the Carlyle Lake Wine Trail.
Hidden Lake Winery and Banquet Center, located in rural Aviston, is situated in “Silent Forest,” a wooded parcel of land abounding in local lore. Their winemaking is influenced by the German heritage of the farming families who settled in this part of Illinois. Their goal is to offer a variety of wines that will satisfy many different palates. The wines are produced with locally-grown fruit and bottled in Hidden Lake Winery’s cellar.
Wine tastings are $3 to sample all of the delicious wines they have to offer. Hidden Lake Winery has so many beautiful views to take in. From the patio overlooking the pond, the surrounding woods, and a rock waterfall. Guests can enjoy a glass of wine (or other beverage if desired) in a tranquil setting with old friends, or perhaps with new ones.
Bretz Wildlife Lodge & Winery is located just north of Carlyle and offers a unique atmosphere for sipping wine and is the perfect compliment to everyday celebrations as well as those special occasions. Not only do they carry their own line of wine but they offer a little something for everyone. Amazing food and a host of other amenities such as a full bar, sand volleyball and phenomenal sunsets where you can relax with friends while sipping a glass of wine.
