Rosario's winery is a special place for family and friends to gather that he wants to share with everyone. It's opening as a boutique winery and it's going to stay a boutique winery. He wants to keep his winery special…unique. Rosario's not a boaster. He just enjoys people smiling and enjoying life and sharing hospitality.
His winery is going to be an Illinois winery with mostly Illinois grown grapes. He's opening it locally and it's going to stay local.
Rosario also wants to produce the best wine he can make. So, he also imports some California grapes and produces wines with them. Although Illinois is a great place to grow wine, it doesn't have the same growing season as California. He will do whatever it takes for you, the consumer and friend, to have the class of fine wine you deserve. Fergedaboudit wines have won several bronze, silver, and gold medals in Illinois state wine competitions.
