Willett's Winery And Cellar

111 Eeast Market Street
Manito, IL 61546

Open: Year-Round


Willett's Winery & Cellar in Manito, Illinois was established at I 05 East Market Street in downtown Manito in 2005 by Dan & Cris Willett, five years after the planting of a 5-acre vineyard near Spring Lake long the Illinois River. The original winery opened after the renovation of an 1893 building used as a harness shop. Renovations included the revealing of natural wood trusses and flooring, the creation of two cellar-viewing windows & an outdoor courtyard, and the re-purposing of many materials. In 2010, Willett's Winery & Cellar expanded their operation to include a production building, and the establishment of The Ironstone Room Restaurant, with Chef Kevin Roecker as executive chef.
