“It was great! I was happy as a clam once I got my wine glass holder lanyard. The wine was good. The food was good and a better selection than last year. I’ll be back next year.”
” This is a superb event in historic Palestine, IL. Visitors can sample wines from several Wabash Valley wineries and enjoy arts and crafts from our internationally acclaimed artists and others. Come enjoy the hospitality of Illinois’ oldest town.
Like the Wabash Valley Wine & Art Fest and ask your friends, too!”
“Will have to get me a glass holder for next time. Great selections, great Reps! Bought a couple great tasting wines, one from Alto Vineyards and one from Vahling Vineyards.”

” Great festival well worth the short drive to get there. Seems much more organized than the local festival at Rend Lake.”
