Kickapoo Creek Winery

Booth #:

Kickapoo Creek Winery is a family-owned vineyard and winery located on 250 rolling acres in the Illinois River Valley. Owned by Dr. David Conner and operated by his son, Executive Director Rory Conner. Beginning in 2001, Dr. Conner began planting the varietal of grapes that you find on the property today, expanding to just over 14 acres.

We focus on handcrafting wine in small batches from locally sourced grapes and grapes grown right here in our own vineyards. Located just 8 miles west of Peoria, IL.

Close to the city but far from the ordinary!
