12 Jan Shawnee Hills Wine Trail Announces January/February Winter Passport Program
The beginning of January brings about the official start of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail Winter Passport Program. Enjoy the excitement of visiting your favorite wineries, savoring their wines and SAVING BIG with great discounts on wine, merchandise, food and more.
Winter is a great time to enjoy the slower, quieter side of Illinois wine country and the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail has provided you with great incentives to do so. With your purchase of a $10.00 winery passport, you will receive discounts at each of our member wineries and a chance to win wonderful prizes along the trail.
This is a new event for the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail that offers opportunities for guests to taste and enjoy many different wines and wine styles along the trail while experiencing the diversity that each winery offers. It is also a great opportunity to enjoy and support local.
Shawnee Hills Wine Trail Executive Director Brandy Nance says: “Passports are an especially great value for regional, southern Illinois residents that can readily visit the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail more than once during our winter season. This enables them to explore our member wineries across multiple weeks.”
What do you say? Enjoy a week or weekend with us and join in the fun with our NEW passport adventure.
How it Works: Purchase your winery passport for $10.00 at any of our 11 member wineries. Bring your passport to each winery and have it stamped during your visit. (One passport per person, per visit). Once your passport has been stamped/completed, leave it at the last winery that you visit. Your passport acts as your ticket for entry into our drawing for great prizes along the trail. Completed passports MUST be turned in by February 28, 2017 to be eligible for prize drawings. Prizes will be announced on March 11, 2017.
