At a dinner party, your host breaks out a bottle of fine wine. Quite the connoisseur, your curiosity is piqued. You request a peek at the label, which reads, "Alto Vineyards, Alto, Illinois." Confused? That's okay. After a day touring the small vineyards tucked into Illinois' Shawnee National Forest, you'll come to understand how the words "fine wine" and "Illinois" can end up in the same sentence. So, pack a picnic lunch, put on some Mozart, and set off to savor the Shawnee scenery along country roads that bind together a few of Illinois' grape growers.
