History
The Lounsberry Family, owners of Hill Prairie Winery, established roots on the property over five generations ago. In 1887, the original settlers from the family utilized the land as a farmstead and for drafting horses. Up until the 1980s, the historic barn was used for housing horses. Once it was renovated, the family began to offer couples the opportunity to host their wedding in the well-kept structure.

    They were extreamly helpful and infomative here, the only thing i wasnt thrilled with was when we showed up to decorate the table and chairs were not set up and the floor of the pavillion was filthy, My mother and I both remmember being told that the floor would be power washed and tables and chairs would be set up all we would have to do is move them. This set us back a good 3 hours on decorating but i couldnt find it in the contract or info provided so i just let it go.

    Hill Prairie Winery's reply:

    Thank you Chelsea for taking time to write a review. You are correct we did tell you we would power wash the floor and we did but we did it earlier in the week and unfortunately the wind blows like crazy sometimes up here on the hill. Since it is open on all sides there is no way to keep it clean at all times. We are very sorry please accept our sincere apology.

    Love every time I get to come here, whether I'm photographing a wedding or just enjoying myself with a glass of wine. The landscape is beautiful, the staff is helpful and friendly and the wine tastes fabulous.

    Hill Prairie Winery holds a special place in my heart, as this is where my wife and I were married on January 3, 2015. The gorgeous grounds of the vineyards coupled with the charm and character of the old barn makes for a perfect wedding ceremony and reception venue. Whether you are looking for a spring, summer, fall, or winter ceremony Hill Prairie Winery has the ability to host indoor and outdoor ceremonies and receptions. This is a family business and you will be able to tell because of the high level of quality service you will receive. Hill Prairie Winery is one of my favorite venues in the Springfield area to perform wedding ceremonies at.
