Alto Vineyards

Alto Vineyards is family-owned and southern Illinois' oldest, most award-winning winery. The Renzaglia Family planted their vineyard in the early 1980's, while the winery first opened its doors in the winter of 1988. Today, Alto Vineyards offers a satellite tasting room in Champaign, IL, in addition to their brand-new tasting room and event center, next to the winery in Alto Pass. The business continues to be family-tradition with one of the brothers residing in Australia producing wines under the Renzaglia name. Alto Vineyards imports wines from their family down-under and proudly displays these wines on their shelves in Illinois. The Renzaglia family invites you into their doors in Alto Pass or Champaign to taste the longstanding tradition of quality wines produced by the family.
