Since 2010, Lake Hill Winery has been West Central Illinois' premier winery and banquet hall. Lake Hill is a member of the Mississippi Valley Wine Trail, along with five other wineries, each within 1.5 hours of each other.

In addition to wine production, the Winery hosts a variety of events including weddings & receptions, large company parties, dueling pianos and much more! Within the complex, the large tasting room holds not only personalized wine, but also a full liquor and beer bar; as well as a classic wine lover's gift shop! Continuing through the winery, you will find 2 banquet halls. The "Barrel Room" has a one-hundred guest capacity which is perfect for birthday parties, anniversaries and bridal/baby showers and the "Banquet Hall" has two spacious levels which will accommodate four-hundred guests.

On the exterior of the building you will find beautiful Carthage Lake as a backdrop to the large deck, as well as a wedding gazebo where some of the most stunning pictures have been captured.
