A Chat with Fergedaboudit Vineyard and Winery
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are family owned and operated, our wines are made from grapes grown in Illinois and California focusing on but not limited to dry, bold Italian types like Chiantis or Red Table Wines.
What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
Some of our more popular wines include, Zinfandel- With hints of currants & raisins. Syrah- With flavors of blackberry plum & spices. Charcato- With characteristics of a Chardonnay combined with the mellow sweetness of Muscato. Marquette - a new French Hybrid, medium dry, great texture, with hints of vanilla, cherry and white pepper! A dream to the nose and palate.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
It all started when a couple of friends from Italy were making wine in the cellar of their home in Chicago & invited Rosario to help. They taught him how to combine old world Italian techniques with new ideas. From his first sip of the fruit of his own labor, he was hooked, he had found his PASSION.
