About Mackinaw Valley Vineyard

Mackinaw Valley Vineyard, is located in Mackinaw, Illinois on an 86 acre farm with a 15 acre vineyard set around a picturesque lake and a sweeping view of the Mackinaw Valley and yes we really mean a valley! There are two favorite wedding locations; a white lake gazebo and a rustic vineyard pergola where couples have taken their vows and begun their life together during the past 16 years. The Vineyard offers beautiful and romantic scenery for creating wedding day memories. This picturesque venue’s elegant gazebos, lavish greenery, the valley and lakefront views at every turn create a dream venue for beautiful and memorable wedding photos and memories.

Convenient Location

The vineyard is less than a 30 minute drive from both Peoria, Illinois to its North and Bloomington -Normal Illinois to its East. It is conveniently located on State Route 9, 10 miles east of I-155 exit in Tremont, Illinois and 16 miles west from the I-55 exit in Bloomington at Market Street, State Route 9 exit. The Morton Holiday Inn and Suites offers complimentary shuttle service to and from the vineyard for wedding parties that host their guests at the hotel (there is a minimum room booking requirement).

Facilities Information

Couples have hosted wedding ceremonies for as many as 500 guests at the Mackinaw Valley Vineyard. There are multiple locations for you to hold your ceremony, including a lake gazebo and the pergola in the vineyard. The pavilion is the perfect spot for your reception, offering beautiful views of both the lake and the vineyard and seating for up to 310 guests. The pavilion was designed to give the feel of an outdoor space with moveable walls on three sides, and two of the walls are glass panels so even when closed the beautiful views and natural lighting are part of the decor.

    We had our wedding at Mackinaw Valley Vineyard last weekend. It was absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect setting for a wedding and we ended up with absolutely perfect weather. Our guests loved the relaxed feel of being able to walk around and enjoy the scenery. Our guests also enjoyed the wine and great music. Diane was great with helping us figure out timelines and logistics to make the day go smoothly. I would highly recommend Mackinaw Valley Vineyard for a wedding. It is the perfect venue for a wedding.

    The vineyard is a gorgeous location for a wedding. We booked it approximately 10 months in advance. Very detailed contract. The vineyard had several suggestions of other people to work with (food, officiant, etc). They kept in constant communication with us and always responded promptly to emails and phone calls. Diane was helpful every step of the way. They were also flexible and basically let us decorate the vineyard the way that we wanted. They set up the chairs and took them down for the ceremony, which was nice to not worry about. The vineyard remains open during weddings, but honestly you don't even notice it. The ceremony area is far enough away from the bar/store area that it still feels private. We had our reception somewhere else and didn't feel any pressure to have the reception at the vineyard. The service we received was excellent.
