Willett's Winery & Cellar
We are very proud to have our winery established in a restored 1893 building in the small town of Manito, IL. Much of the building was destroyed by fire in 1914, but later rebuilt. Willett's Winery & Cellar was established at 105 East Market Street in Manito, IL, in 2005, five years after the initiation of an 8 acre vineyard and orchard located near Spring Lake in Tazewell County.
Life is not without irony, as it was discovered during the planning and preparation for the opening of the winery that owners Dan and Cris Willett's heritage included wine making. Dan's great-grandfather made his own wine in Manito in the early 1900's, and family traditions that have included home wine-making have been presented in both Dan and Cris' families.
Vintage. At Willett's Winery & Cellar in Manito, a wide variety of wine is produced. Our wine list keeps growing as we develop new formulas for your tasting pleasure: Apple Splash, Black Raspberry Rush, Blueberry Chill, Chambourcin, Chardonel, Cranberry Frost, Frontenac, Hometown Red, Hometown White, Leon Millot, Midnight Cherry, Red Raspberry Thrill, Seyval Blanc, St. Croix, Strawberry Breeze,  Traminette, Vidal Blanc, Vignoles, Willett's Winery.

- Wine & Dine Experience. The Wine & Dine Experience is a 4-course gourmet meal prepared by Chef Kevin Roecker with each course being expertly paired with wine from Willett's Winery & Cellar. During the evening, you'll hear about each course selection from Chef Kevin and each wine selection from winemaker, Dan Willett.
