Enjoy our meticulously chosen dishes! 
Welcome to Hidden Lake Winery 

Our Goal  Our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience to cherish with your friends and family for years to come. We source as much product as possible from local businesses and believe it is vital to support our surrounding community. 

Our Food  Our food is handmade at Hidden Lake Winery by Chef Margaret Rodenhouse who is a graduate from the French Culinary Institute. Chef Margaret has meticulously chosen each dish on our menu and hope you enjoy! 

Our Vineyard  Our vineyard was planted in April 2017 and we will get our first harvest in 2021. Our wines are made on premises by our vinter Cory Kunkle and we currently receive the majority of our grapes from Zuckerbach Vineyards in Albers, IL 

Our Events Contact Ashley Deiters, our talented event coordinator to see how she can assist in making your wedding, anniversary party, small or large gathering an event to remember.
