Ridge View Winery is located in southwestern Brown County, Illinois, approximately 9 1/2 miles southwest of Mt. Sterling. This spacious Illinois winery sets on a ridge 180 feet above McKee Creek valley with a panoramic view of the wooded ridges native to the area. Larry and Phyllis Hanold established their first vineyard of four acres with Chardonel grapes in 2000. In 2002 a second vineyard was established with Frontenac, Marechal Foch, and GR-7, bring the total acres to five and one-quarter with over 3,000 vines. In 2007 four dozen Corot Noir were added. The Ridge View Winery uses these grapes, as well as Vignoles, Edelwiess, Chambourcin, Noiret, Norton, Vidal Blanc and other varieties from western Illinois vineyards, to produce unique wines that exhibit excellent bouquet and highly concentrated fruit flavors. Construction on the 10,700 square feet winery began on September 13, 2005, with the winery opening on June 1, 2007. The winery is composed of a 2,400 square feet tasting room with a stairway leading up to a 480 square feet loft, which overlooks the tasting room. The 4,800 square feet banquet room is located behind the tasting room and has a 400 square feet kitchen area. Outside is 1,180 square feet lower deck, a 200 square feet deck off the banquet room, and a 1,180 square feet upper deck accessible from both the lower deck and from the loft area inside the tasting room.
