Kite Hill Vineyard Brings in Award-Winning Wines


If you like to enjoy a fine wine at one of the area’s beautiful wineries, then Kite Hill Vineyard, just outside of Murphysboro, might be the place to go. Three of their house wines won awards in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, one of the largest wine contests in the country. Kite Hill’s special Chambourcin won a gold medal, with Viognier and the Chardonel close behind wining silver. Congratulations go to Scott Albert, the Vineyard’s winemaker. The award-winning wines will be available to the public starting February 21. To see what else they have to offer go to the Kite Hill Vineyard website.
