I come here for the grape juice, which is like nothing else I have ever tasted. I like to mix it with diet ginger ale. Way yummy! They also have canned goods made in Illinois and home baked pies. The proprietress is a really nice person, and makes the visit a pleasant one.

A fun day trip we have been taking for years. We get cheese and grape juice at Baxter's then head to the huge park with kids, Baxter's are courteous, have superb wine cheeses and baked goods, darling little shop. Don't forget to ask for a free sample if wine!

I've had Baxter's wine several years in a row while visiting their booth at Vintage Illinois Wine Festival held every September in Utica so I knew what to expect. I couldn't pass up stopping at this historic winery while staying in Nauvoo for the Grape Festival. We did a mini-wine tasting, more so for my partner than for me and... More

This is always our first stop when we come to town for the car show during the annual grape festival. You must have the wine slushies and/or bloody Mary's. Great people and great fun!

Our group of 9 spent the day in Nauvoo seeing the sights and checking out some of the shops, so by late afternoon, we were looking for a place to unwind. My sister and I agreed it was time to visit Baxter's Vineyards. We bought several bottles of their Concord Grape Juice, a box of crackers, some beef summer sausage... More

What a pleasant surprise! My boyfriend and I were in the area for Labor Day weekend, as he grew up in Keokuk. We spend a lit of time over the weekend exploring southeast IA, west central IL and northeast MO when we came across this delightful winery. Staff was extremely pleasant, the wine slushies in the bar were awesome and... More

When we arrived, we were greeted by one of the owners, Brenda Logan and were guided to the tasting room. There we were told the history of the winery and educated about each wine that they produce. After Lori sampled their... More

I love this winery! I've been to several small wineries and can honestly say that Baxter's probably had the most uniquely tasting wines I've had at a small vineyard. Was very much surprised by the originality of the flavors. ALSO! The Baxter Family is still in ownership of this winery, making it a fun piece of local history since the... More

My wife and I just spent a weekend in Nauvoo. We stayed at the Grand Nauvoo B & B directly across the street from Baxter Vineyards.

Go for the wine and you'll be pleased. No big tour here-2 rooms to walk through on your own-but their wines are lovely. We sampled several and bought more than one bottle. Wine in Illinois? Who Knew?
