Forsee Vineyards and Winery is truly a family affair. In fact, our entire family is involved in the many facets of growing and picking grapes, producing wine or marketing and advertising. We are supporters of the Illinois wine industry and generate our wines from the grapes grown here at the vineyard or from other Illinois growers. Our friends and neighbors are also involved by picking the grapes and sharing the wine they helped to produce with their friends and families. We use local businesses when needed and all this, in turn, supports our community.
