Overview
More
Since officially opening on July 1st, 2011, the winery has become home to numerous weddings, showers, fundraisers, class reunions, musical performances, and holiday parties. The owners, Wes and Wanda Pitcher want all visitors to “Come as our guests, leave as our friends.” Tuscan Hills Winery provides an old-world Tuscan feel in the heart of Effingham, Illinois. We are particularly focused on offering exceptional quality wines and providing a comfortable, home-like atmosphere for all ages. We are family and pet friendly. All of our wines are made right here at the winery. However, if wine isn’t the drink for you, we also offer a full bar, wine-slushies, and sangrias. We offer wine tastings daily. Tuscan Hills isn’t only about the wine; it’s about the experience.

Great way to spend an afternoon. 5 wines for $6 and you keep a wine glass. Delightful patio with lovely rural country setting among the the vineyards and beautiful corn fields. Definitely worth the stop.

Tuscan Hills Winery is a beautiful winery that is close to the interstate but also set off enough to feel like you are in beautiful Tuscany. They have a great selection of wines, both dry and sweet. My husband and I loved their Andiamo and...More

Very pretty Tuscan inspired villa-cum-tasting room. Very nice selection of wines to try for a reasonable price. They offer other beverages as well, but the focus is on the wines. That being said, they don't have their own wines bottled there. The grapes are sent...More

Thank you for your review of Tuscan Hills Winery, David. I just want to clarify the wines being 'ours'. You are correct that we are not strictly a vineyard as this part of Illinois can be terrible for growing grapes. We have certainly tried. All...More
