Inside seating. There are several picnic tables outside if you want to enjoy the fresh air.
We had a great time here. We were there on a Thursday. On Thursdays they have a flea market and food vendors. There were several vendors with various products. We met lots of great people.
A nice variety of beer.
For the non-drinkers, they have a great root beer.
This is definitely a place where we will stop again. The owners are great. there is a huge parking area for RV’s. We were parked on one side and there was another huge area on the other side of the building. Four RV’s showed up while we were there.
Hill Prairie Winery is unique. The winery building is actually designed from an old barn.
Being an old barn you can still recognize where the stalls used to be.

There is a n upstairs where weddings and gatherings are held. The upstairs used to hold several hundred bails of hay
They serve food on Fridays with a very limited menu. We had the steak and it was excellent. The baked potato is topped with a very tasty garlic butter sauce. If we ever return to Prairie Hill I plan to try the ribs.
This was a very interesting and informative Harvest Host stop. Everything you ever wanted to know about oil drilling and petroleum products can be found here. There is a great history behind the petroleum industry. Here is some information from the past.
One of the most interesting displays shows all the products we use daily that require petroleum in order to produce them.
The facility also had a field of many oil rigs from the past.
Oil drilling was a very dangerous job, especially when it came to driving the truck with nitroglycerin.
One display at the museum was quite interesting. It was an oil drilling ‘lego’ city was built entirely by students.
Seeing this museum brought with it the reality that without petroleum most of those items we are comfortable with could no longer be made.
Since we visited here during Covid restrictions it worked out well with the fabulous open air concept. There is seating inside and out.
The huge parking area has the plenty of room for Rv’s and local patrons.
It is an open air establishment with seating inside and out. Their home brews on tap can be purchased. Food can be ordered form an outside food hut with many choices. Staff was very friendly. This Host site is very popular with the locals
This winery is nestled in the woods. A cabin sits among the trees with a view of the grape vine fields. You can walk the trails through the grapevines or sit on the front porch and have great conversations with other travelers and the owner.
Various wines are available for purchase.
This Host site only has a few spots for RV’s so, as with all Harvest Host sites, you need to call and reserve your space.
