August Hill Winery

August Hill Winery was built in July, 2004. The day before the first grapes arrived, we moved in tanks, presses and crushers to take on this first harvest. It is hard to believe that this building stood empty a few years ago when it was built. It is now filled with wine-making equipment and wine.

August Hill Winery
The Winery. The heart of the winery is the volunteers, family and friends who share our passion for creation. They help us with planting, pruning, harvesting, crushing, bottling, labeling, taste testing, transporting grapes and wine, repairing and so many other tasks that have contributed to our success.
Winemaker. Mark Wenzel is the winemaker for August Hill Winery. Mark holds an Engineering degree from the University of Florida. He has always had an interest in wine and has experimented making small batches through the years. When he discovered that French-hybrid grapes grow well in our climate, the concept for August Hill Winery was born. Mark handcrafts each wine by creating different blends to form a high-quality wine. August Hill Winery has been very fortunate to have great support from the wine industry and is extremely grateful for the support they have provided.
Vineyard. August Hill's 3-acre vineyard stands atop a bluff on the south side of the Illinois River on the same property as our winery. The first 2½ acres of vines were planted in the spring of 2003 with the help of many family and friends. Each hole was dug by hand, and each vine was planted by hand. The vineyard includes a wide variety of grapes and a large experimental section. As the grapes grow, we’ll determine which grow best in our climate and which make the best wine.
Products: Blush/Rosé Wine, Dessert Wine, Non-alcoholic Wine, Red Wine, Sparkling Wine, White Wine.
