I don't think anyone has every mistaken the DesPlaines River for the Rhone or the Rhine, but that doesn't mean there aren't a handful of vineyards in suburban Chicago. Lynfred Winery in Roselle has tastings every evening (tip: takes the edge off of that Woodfield experience); Valentino Vineyards in Long Grove also has tastings if you find yourself seeking vino in the wild edges of suburbia.
