Winery

Visit us at our two Southern Illinois wineries just miles apart from each other in Pomona and Alto Pass, Illinois.

Von Jakob Winery & Brewery – Alto Pass, Illinois

Located just minutes away from Carbondale IL, the setting for this location is atop the highest elevated orchard in southern Illinois. With over 20 acres of apples and 15 acres of grapes coupled with the backdrop of the Shawnee National Forest, the views from our courtyard and decks are truly picturesque. Don’t forget to visit our Tasting Room with over 20 different award winning wines or our Gift Shop that has something for everyone. Finally, check out our Winery Ballroom that can fit up to 500 people for weddings, festivals, corporate events and other large gatherings. This room is also equipped with a large fireplace for those colder months so feel free to visit us any time of the year.

Von Jakob Vineyard – Pomona, Illinois


Owners Paul and Rhoda Jacobs originally planted their ideal grape growing ground around their family’s Tudor home to give a warm, welcome feeling. This location offers amazing, countryside atmosphere with an intimate setting. On warmer days relax on our covered and uncovered decks overlooking the vineyard. In the colder months sit by the crackling fire inside our atrium or venture outside to the deck that features a monstrous two-story stone fire place. At any time of year, you will find a warm welcome here.
