Pioneer Winery

300 S. Main St.
Palestine, Illinois 62451

A walk down Palestine's "main drag" is to step back into the 30s and 40s. Even the winery is steeped in history-- a 1908 building built for a bank that failed during the Great Depression. It now houses wines as well as Cathy's art studio and gallery. The wine is made just across the street in a vintage village building. The Johnsons are pouring their experiences from life in New York's Finger Lakes region and travels to California into their wines.
