Within the Shawnee Hills American Viticultural Area are unique, eclectic wineries producing a wide array of wines and experiences for travelers. While the wineries are excellent producers of wines, we want visitors to the region to appreciate our member wineries commitment to the appellation.  Appellation:  A defined, recognized area or region.


This means that our member wineries create wines that capture and reflect the unique terroir of our region rather than focusing on grapes or juice purchased from other regions.
