Illinois Wine Shops, Cellars, and Stores

Illinois Wine Shops Map

The rise in the popularity and interest in wine has resulted in the increase of Illinois wine shops. These wine stores are more than the usual liquor store. In cities like Galena, Rockford, Springfield and Belleville there are wine cellars that specialize in fine IL wines as well as national and international wines. Some also sell beer and liquor, but more and more are specialized just for wine. They usually have an extensive selection of wines and a friendly and knowledgeable staff that can help you to select the perfect wine for every occasion. The sommelier or wine steward on staff is an excellent resource for any questions you have about wine.

IL Wine Shop Wine Tasting

Wine shops in Joliet, Waukegan, Jacksonville or Carbondale may also offer wine tasting events too. That's right! Many IL wine cellars will host wine tasting events where customers can sample new wines and get more detailed information about the wine regions they come from. Every Illinois wine shop is different. They each offer unique wines and may specialize in specific wines from specific IL wineries. Often at these events, the wine shop will feature wines from a particular winery or a representative from a winery will come to present their wines and answer questions. All you need to do is arrive thirsty and ready to taste great wine! And often the featured wines are available at a savings. You can also purchase wines by the case if you find one you really love. If it turns out to be a local wine you love, you can find out more about that particular winery and make plans to tour that Illinois winery. So if you want a great selection of wines to choose from, visit a Galena River Wine & Cheese, Tuscan Market & Wine Shop, Village Wine Shop or Printers Row Wine Shop and see what these and other excellent IL wine shops have to offer. As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help you find the perfect wine store to buy great wines.
