Located in Union, IL, and adjacent to the 49 rolling acres of the Paddock Hills Equestrian and Event Center, Prairie Orchard Farm and Winery is the premier agritourism destination of McHenry County. Just three miles from the Hampshire / I90 Tollway exit, Prairie Orchard Farm offers easy access to those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of suburban or city life. Nestled in the tranquil atmosphere of a working horse farm, the Prairie Orchard Vineyard will melt your cares away as naturally as the dew evaporates from the vines!

Developed just a few short years ago, Prairie Orchard Farm has grown into a majestic, romantic vineyard. In 2011, 3900 vines were lovingly tucked into the rolling hillsides, setting the stage for romance. The vines responded well to our love and care, and the grapes already were looking great in the summer of 2012!

First Harvest—2013!
Late August—Early September is harvest time at the vineyard! We are thrilled to announce that our tender-loving care has paid off and we had the pleasure of enjoying our first harvest in 2013! Tons and tons of grapes were proudly picked, binned and turned over to our wine maker. Our wine will be available next year!
