Establishing Von Jakob Vineyard in 1996, owners Paul and Rhoda Jacobs made the decision to plant grapes outside their countryside home. Almost two decades later, their grape-growing efforts have sprouted into a thriving business with over 20 varieties of Illinois wine, a brewery, and a beautiful southern Illinois Bed & Breakfast. All the while, the Jacobs along with their children continue to operate the winery today.
Von Jakob Winery & Brewery is open year round, 7 days a week! Learn More
