Great Times Happen Here

Wine Bar at Walnut Street Winery

Tasting Bar at Walnut Street Winery

We invite you to bring some friends and join us for a tasting, glass or bottle in our beautiful tasting room or our outdoor wine garden.

Browse our wine shop for wine accessories. We also offer a selection of cheeses, crackers, beer, bottled water and juices. Our bocce ball court is waiting for you!

Shanle Wines are available for daily tasting. The wines that we sell will change periodically as we add different wines to our wine list.  Our customers should be able to find a wine they will like at the Walnut Street Winery.

Our wine garden features a bocce ball court that is 60 feet long and 13 feet wide.  You can enjoy your wine out in the open air, along with a delicious Isabell’s Pizza or some of the great Wisconsin cheeses that we have available.  The wine garden is a unique setting for hosting wedding receptions, class reunions, office parties, Christmas parties and other group events. Oh, and did we mention free Wi-Fi?

We are located off of Route 29 just 7 miles east of the state capitol in Springfield, Illinois.  We welcome all of our legislators to visit the winery when in session.  Just as Abe Lincoln visited Rochester to meet President Martin Van Buren in 1842, all the visitors to the Abe Lincoln Presidential Museum are most welcome to visit Rochester and stop by the winery.
