Shawnee Hills Wine Trail

Raise Your Glass to a Great Time in Southern Illinois!
Murphysboro is the perfect base of operations to explore Southern Illinois's growing wine area. Start your morning with a hearty country breakfast then browse the antique stores downtown before heading off to the many vineyards along the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, located just a few miles down scenic Highway 127.

Visitors can stop at any number of tasting rooms to sample award-winning wines and browse the gift shops, many of which feature work by local artists. For shopping enthusiasts, other unique shops and artist studios can be found along the way or indulge in some fruit cobbler right at the orchard!

At the end of the day, return to Murphysboro to enjoy one of our many
fine restaurants and accommodations.  Many of the wineries regularly offer music and entertainment on weekends, as well as offering facilities for that special private event.
