Designed by Rockie Nolan.
When you think of the Midwest, you probably don't think of vineyards. Fair enough. We're all so used to hearing about the magic of Napa Valley or France, that we've neglected to realize that some truly delicious sips can be found just an hour or two away. This fall is the perfect time to change that. Whether you're looking for a chance to get away with your S.O. or you're in charge of planning an epic day-trip with friends, we've found seven nearby wineries that will check off all of your gushing-for-grapes needs. Cheers!
