What a gem of a place. I highly recommend the ports or the oxymoron red. You can sample any of their wines for free. Great customer service.

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy Glunz White or Red Sangria. It's perfectly balanced - not too sweet. Just keep chilled in the fridge, and add some cut up fruit, and it's just a nearly instant party beverage. I also enjoy the May Wine with grilled chicken and fish. I appreciate that Glunz will take back the empty bottles; it's a great "green" policy.

From Our Editors

When Chicagoans think of the Glunz name, they think of a good drink. It's hard not to when the family has been active in the wine business in the Chicago-area since 1888. In 1992, the family formed Glunz Family Winery & Cellars, a winery based in their hometown of Grayslake.

In the 20 years since that decision, they have created a roster of elegant table wine, fortified wine, specialty seasonal wine, and reserve wine, which includes chardonnay, pinot noir, and a zinfandel blend. They age their tawny port in specialty barrels for 10 years and isolate the sweetness of more than two pounds of raspberries to create every bottle of their dessert wine. Like a puppy dressed in an ugly christmas sweater, their traditional glogg?a blend of port, dry red wine, spices, and an orange peel?adds cheer to the dreary winter months.

Their true speciality, however, is their first family wine. Every spring, the family calls upon a 19th-century recipe to make their May wine, which is imbued with the fresh spring flavors of crisp green apples and cinnamon. At the winery's tasting room, guests can try samples of this wine and the others.
