The next stop on the girlfriend's wine-away (I think we will call it this in future!) was Bella Terra Winery. The ladies were amazed that none of the wineries on the Southern Illinois Wine Trail charged tasting fees. They tasted 15 different wines at Bella Terra, enjoyed appetizers, and the beautiful countryside. The staff was very friendly and explained all the types of wines in detail. They loved the "Tuscan Rose," Illinois Vignoles, Illinois Concords, and Chambourcin. The women who visited The Irish Inn bed and breakfast said this was the best all-girls holiday ever!
