Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 starsOct 15, 2018

Supposedly, Baxter’s Winery is Illinois’ oldest winery. Back in 1880 there were over 600 acres of grapes and 40 wine cellars in Nauvoo. Today Baxter’s Vineyards survives with 16 acres of grapes with 13 varieties being harvested each year. Interestingly, most wines do not have a vintage year ascribed to them since the bottles contain a mixture of different harvest. We were treated to their tart/sour non-oaked Norton, a Chambourcin which had a brown color and toasted flavor from the blend of Chambourcin, Corot Noir, Norton & Noiret, a very soft Captain’s White (Swenson White, Frontenac Blanc & Petit Ami) and a surprisingly Riesling like Semi-Dry Icarian White (Vidal/Traminette). A fun tiny tasting room which also sold herbs, cheese, candies, baked goods and fruits from the property. First three tastings free, but who is counting.

Small town winery; cordial staff. Be sure to check out cooking classes led by Liz Clark, professional chef! She is great and so are the classes and food!
