The owner’s wife hosted our tasting. She was so welcoming and kind. She was extremely knowledgeable about the various grapes, growing and harvesting, and wines available. She offered wonderful ideas for pairing the wines with dinner options and offered recommendations for gifting wine or taking...More

Definitely a great place to visit. Rudy and Vivian are fantastic hosts for the tour and tasting. I've been on tours at other wineries, including Napa, and thought they were good, but after experiencing this I realize the other places were mediocre. It's always good...More

Do not go on the vineyard tour. They charged for a "tour" that consisted of the owner of the winery rambling for 30 minutes (or less?) and then abruptly walking back into the house for the tasting. We walked to a group of vines that...More

We did a groupon which I would not recommend, it was for a Tour, Seminar and Tasting. It certainly sounds good but I assure you it wasnt. The tour consisted of a walk down to the grapevines and a 25-35 minute lecture on variety and...More

My wife and I toured this vineyard on a recent Saturday afternoon. This winery is run by a nice family who loves what they do. Valentino Vineyards & Winery produces twenty different types of wine and has twenty-five different varieties of grapes that are grown...More

A quality vineyard in Long Grove? Who would have thought that possible. But the wines are really quiet good. And the setting is really attractive. Can't make it out to Napa? This is a good fill in.

The best part about this vineyard was Rudolph Valentino DiTommaso -the owner. He does know a lot about wines and explains everything very nicely. But the wines are fair, very sweet compared to most and seemed to taste all the same after a while. They...More

This small vineyard in Long Grove, IL is owned by Rudolph Valentino DiTommaso who is very passionate about his craft as viticulturist and vintner. Known to his friends as Rudy, he will teach you more about grapes and wines during the tour, tasting seminar than...More

Valentino Vineyards is odd at best. If you are looking for good quality and good tasting wine, this place is not for you. Rudi the host is also rather "unique", he is very engaging, but not always in a professional way. You almost get the...More
