Join us at Southern Illinois’ oldest, most award-winning winery, nestled in the hills of the Shawnee National Forest for a unique four-day Solar Celebration. At Alto Vineyards, we are uniquely situated to enjoy a great view of the entire eclipse! Our Solar Celebration is a four-day event leading up to this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We welcome families, friends, couples, and astronomy enthusiasts to come out and listen to some of Southern Illinois’ most talented musicians play some good tunes and watch the Solar Eclipse from our beautiful patio and wine deck. We have an entire weekend celebration planned including food, lawn games, music, and of course, our award-winning wine, with a special rooftop catered meal on August 21st for a select few.
We will have special-label wine, Eclipse viewing glasses, and tee shirts available to purchase, as well as a great line up of bands scheduled every day and special deals on wine and merchandise.
On Saturday. August 19th, we have Annie Kennedy and friends from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. and the Jenny Johnson Band from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. There will be yard games, bbq plates, and music all day. Additional bands and deals will be announced soon!
