Our Facilities. The Fox Valley Winery has three tasting rooms. Our full-service winery and tasting room is located on Route 34 in Oswego, Illinois and features a private tasting room, sitting area, two fireplaces a large retail store. Tours of the winemaking facility are offered on weekends. A second tasting room is located in Sandwich Illinois. Tasting is offered daily at both locations.
The Sandwich tasting room is in a 120 year old double-walled masonry building. The building was originally used to store blocks of ice cut from the Somonauk Creek, which lies just west of town. Area residents purchased these large blocks of ice for use in their "ice box" refrigerators commonly used in homes before the turn of the 20th century. This double storefront location offers a comfortable sitting area and a comfortable surrounding and tasting area.
The private tasting room at the Oswego location may be rented during business hours as well as after hours. The room is perfect for parties, showers and meetings. The Sandwich store can be used to host food pairing classes, meetings, etc. We have welcomed the "Red Hat Society," a bridal shower, and much more.

- Dry Wine: Chardonel, Seyval Blanc, Vidal Blanc, Deux Blanc, George's Red, Chambourcin (This classic Illinois red wine features aromas of bing cherries, ripe plums and soft oak).

Wine Club. Fox Valley Winery's Wine Club allows you to experience our wines in the comfort of your own home. We offer three different clubs to suite your specific taste – Quarterly, Dry, and Sweet. The Quarterly Wine Club program offers a cross-selection of Fox Valley wines, from white to red and dry to sweet. The Quarterly Wine Club consists of at least two bottles selected every third month (December, March, June, and September).
The winemaker chooses the wines for the club selection, based on new releases and new vintages. We want to offer our wine club members the opportunity to taste a variety of high quality wines and provide the chance to experience and discuss our unique wines with other club members, family, and friends.
Events are held at the vineyard twice a summer.
