Join us for “Wine on the Hill” on Friday, July 3, from 4:30-8:30 pm, located at our August Hill & ISC winery and vineyard in Peru, Illinois.
One Ticket = One Parking Spot
Tickets are for reserved parking because we have limited parking at the winery. One ticket is good for admittance for 1 car to the Wine on the Hill event (groups at the event are limited to 10 people per Illinois COVID guidelines). The cost per car is $10 if purchased in advance. If we do not sell out prior to the event, tickets will be available at the door for $15 per car.

Venue & Accessibility
The venue is a large, grassy hillside overlooking the Illinois Valley. There is very little flat surface so blanket seating is recommended for the spots higher up on the hill. You can also bring chairs for the flatter areas of the hill. You can bring a tent or umbrella for shade, but try to be respectful of others when staking your spot. The hill is pretty steep in spots. Depending on where you choose to sit, the climb varies between slightly challenging and quite challenging. We will have two porta pots and a hand washing station on site.
Steve Cerqua will be providing music from 5-8 pm!
Parking is limited. We will have a person guiding arrivals into parking spots the first hour of the event. If no parking attendant is present, please follow the layout and conserve more spots for others arriving later.
