Driving time from Chicago: One hour
This Plainfield winery uses fresh-picked cherries, blackberries and peaches, plus grapes sourced from Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New York and California to make a wide variety of wines you can taste alongside a plate of cheese or charcuterie. If you’re looking for some summer fun, chill on the patio with a wine slushie and order a s’mores tray that allows you to roast the marshmallows right at your table. The spot also regularly hosts special events such as trivia, bingo and live music.
