Hidden Lake Winery

Hidden Lake Winery, located in rural Aviston, IL, is situated in Silent Forest, a wooded parcel of land abounding in local lore. These woods have been well known to those who hunt deer and forage for wild mushrooms. Bootleggers hid their still back in these woods to dodge the revenuers in the early 1900s. Legend has it that Indian spirits can be seen to roam here at night accompanied by the songs of frogs, crickets, owls and distant coyotes. The Silent Forest continues to enchant and entertain our guests at Hidden Lake Winery.
