Vineyard & Winery Field Day with Susan Danenberger
Sunday, October 14, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., The Land Connection hosts the final Women Who Farm Series field day at Danenberger Family Vineyards with Susan Danenberger.
Some say quality wine grapes cannot be grown in central Illinois, but they have not met winemaker Susan Danenberger! Hundreds of Vinifera, French-American hybrid, and American hybrid vines stand as proof that high-quality grapes can be grown in central Illinois. Susan attributes the success they’ve had with growing grapes to the minerals in the meticulously nurtured soil and constant breeze keeping the vines and grapes disease free. For Susan, every bottle is a work of art that she crafts with loving care year-upon-year. Explore her vineyard, nestled in her family’s Centennial farm, and learn the process of making Illinois wine.
Join us for a beautiful day of vines and wines! Registration is $15 through Saturday, October 6, and $20 starting on Sunday, October 7. The field day includes a tour of the vineyard and winery given by Susan Danenberger, a tasting of three Danenberger wines, a fun aroma workshop, and locally-sourced snacks and refreshments. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend, though the wine tasting is only available to those over 21!
