Live Music is a major draw at Hill Prairie Winery year 'round in a relaxing natural setting. There's never a cover charge (except for major festivals). It's a great place to meet friends and family for our delicious wines, beers, and refreshments. For more information, please call (217) 635-9900. The 2024 Schedule is listed below and will be updated frequently as we lock in the top local bands.
