Today, Waterman Winery and Vineyards, Inc. is a 12-acre vineyard, lush with 40 varieties of primarily French-American grapes. However, in 1998, the winery began as something else entirely—a fanciful idea in the minds of three middle school teachers nearing retirement. After spending years specializing in agriculture, chemistry, and social sciences, they banded together to found the winery, outfitting it with eco-friendly production techniques that have earned them various sustainability awards. Nowadays, the team produces a wide variety of wines, from cherry wine and spiced reds to crisp whites. Visitors can sample the eco-friendly wines during on-site tastings, or purchase bottles to take home and sip on their own time.
Rather than cram its immense selection of libations into one storefront, Liquor 'N' Wine spreads it out among five Illinois locations. At each setting, the staff stocks shelves with wines from California and foreign regions such as France, Italy, and New Zealand—where winemakers settled after grapes went extinct in Old Zealand. The wine shares space with top-shelf brands of tequila, rum, gin, and vodka, as well as a generous assortment of whiskeys. Along with their namesake beverages, each Liquor 'N' Wine supplies bottles and kegs of domestic and imported beer and doubles as a Western Union station and propane exchange.
