Waterman Winery & Vineyards is family-owned and operated in rural Waterman, Illinois located approximately 70 miles west of Chicago, and 40 miles west of Naperville. Our 12-acre, grass-covered vineyards are populated with 40 different varieties of red and white grapes. We are proud to offer around 20 varieties of wine unique to Northern Illinois and handcrafted with care.
The winery and vineyards are located on Tuntland Farms, a fourth generation operation. The Tuntland family also raises corn and soybeans on the property.
At Waterman Winery & Vineyards, we are committed to sustainability. Our family has responsibly grown, maintained and harvested grapes, and produced handcrafted regional wines on our farmstead for nearly two decades.
We produce natural, award-winning wines via environmentally friendly methods. The vineyards provide a rich habitat for a wide range of wildlife including hawks, cardinals, herons, foxes, coyotes, deer, minks, dragon flies, praying mantis, bees, butterflies, and a variety of other insects.
