Fox Creek Vineyards

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 (with one major reservation–late Spring freezes). The soils and the intense summer heat allow the making of wines with very pronounced fruity flavors. This allows us to craft wines in the traditional styles that are a truly unique experience in full flavored, fruity aromas, without the need for heavy oaking.

2023 Featured Wines


  • PEACH WINE – Sweet, pure, natural peach wine made from fresh, locally grown peaches.
  • HEARTHSIDE II – Sweet Red blend with a soft, smooth taste that is light and “grapey”.  Great after-dinner sipping wine
  • APPLE BLACK WALNUT – We may be a little nutty, but we started with Sweet Apple Wine from local fresh apples and added Natural Black Walnut flavor!
  • GRIS LIGHTNING – Sweet Dessert wine made from the Frontenac Gris grape. Rich and Fruity with notes of Prune, Pineapple, and Honey. Silky, Elegant, and Big-Mouth-Feel. Winner of Silver Medal in 2023 IL State Fair.


  • CHAMBOURCIN – Semi-dry Chambourcin grape, medium-bodied wine with great aromas. Try it with any meat or game dish. Surprisingly good with light salads & sandwiches.
  • RASPBERRY WINE – Fresh handpicked raspberries with an even balance of sweetness and tartness.  Imagine eating a fresh raspberry – without seeds!
  • KICKIN’ THE BLUES – Blueberry wine from Fresh blueberries, semi-sweet with light oak.  Lovely taste of blueberries!


  • RED FOX – Dry red blend of Chambourcin and Marechal Foch. A premium wine with soft oak.
