Step out of the '90s at the historic farmstead of Waterloo Winery. The restored mansion, dating back to 1818, borders the bluffs of Great River Road and is set against the backdrop of a 100-year-old barn. Owners Mark and Susan Hendershot produce about 30 wines and offer a sampling of 30 more from other Illinois wineries. Enjoy Waterloo's hottest seller, Diamond, a floral semi-sweet wine, in the garden area while the weather is comfortable. Once the temperature drops, tours continue and the free wine tasting is moved indoors. Waterloo makes customized labels and etched bottles for events ranging from weddings to anniversaries to corporate retirements.
