Tuscan Hills Winery

Southern Illinois



Situated halfway between St. Louis, Missouri and Terre Haute, Indiana, Tuscan Hills Winery provides an old-world Tuscan feel in the heart of Effingham, Illinois. A relaxed and intimate setting, this striking winery provides the perfect backdrop for your special day. A beautiful outdoor ceremony takes place on the lush lawn next to a warm stone building with a Spanish-tiled roof. Your guests will witness your special moment as you say your vows beneath the charming gazebo, against a backdrop of the lush trees and greenery of the vineyard. A lovely cocktail hour on the covered terrace follows, allowing guests to enjoy the vineyard’s wines and mingle with each other. Later, dinner and dancing makes for a beautiful reception in the Fireplace Room. Anchored by a rustic wooden wall behind the bar, this room features large metal wine casks surrounding the room. Your guests will marvel at the intimate and unique winery setting, and you and your new love will begin happily ever after at Tuscan Hills Winery!
