   Mockingbird Vineyards vision and creation came from our brother-in-law, the late H. Daniel Willett, who first planted the vines in 2005. Dan created award winning wines that would enrich tasting experiences from the flavors and aromas that originated from the 5.5 acres of grapes.
   In 2011, the passion for the vineyard continued on. The new dedication and success for caring for the vines proved rewarding for us. A bountiful crop of 9 varieties has since been expanded in quantity and is available to be matched up with wineries committed to making Illinois wines. As grape growers we strive in supreme tasting juice derived from the varietals grown at our vineyards, and we take pride in grape production.


"My number one commitment, besides growing good
grapes, is to work with the wine makers to make
sure their expectations are met from
the start of each season to harvest."

~ Doug Abbott, Owner, Mockingbird Vineyards
