Frequently Asked Questions   

Welcome to our frequently asked questions page.  Whether this is your first time with us or first visit to the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail or local breweries, we're sure that you will find our observations useful when planning your visit.

1.  Where and when will our tour begin?

We will pick you up at your hotel, cabin, bed & breakfast or other regional lodging within a 20-mile radius of our home office, but can certainly pick you up elsewhere with other arrangements.  You choose your start time.

2.  How many wineries or breweries can we visit in one day?

We suggest that you visit between 3 and 5 locations during your tour.  This will allow you ample time to enjoy your sampling, lunch or live music at any of the locations.  We do not like to rush our guests and this allows time to load, unload and enjoy your stay at each business.

​4.  Are there fees associated with winery or brewery visits?

Individual wineries and breweries each have their own sampling fees and glass deposits, however, they are minimal.  We are not allowed to pay for our guests sampling fees due to state law.  On special occasions, a winery or brewery may have a special event or festival where an admission fee may be required. 

5.  I would like to visit wineries and breweries.  Can I visit both in the same day?

There are several breweries that are located near enough to the western half of the  Shawnee Hills Wine Trail and we can certainly travel to both. 

6.  Is gratuity included in pricing?

Gratuity for your driver is not included in our pricing.  We prefer to leave it up to our guests to decide how much to tip our tour guides.  We pride ourselves on having knowledgeable, local drivers that will offer you a unique, homegrown experience.

Bald Knob Cross

Among the foothills of the Ozark Mountain range that stretch into Union County and southern Illinois, rises a beacon, a monument of peace, faith, charity, and of hope. Towering above the landscape at a over 111 feet, and visible for over 7,500 square miles, this is the Bald Knob Cross of Peace.
