About Us

Get To Know Us


Willett’s Winery & Cellar in Manito is located in an 1893 building originally used as a harness shop. Renovations included the revealing of natural wood trusses and flooring, and creation of a wine bar using 90 year old barn wood.

The tasting room, which has seating for 50 guests, is available for rental 7 days a week (excluding holidays). The tasting room is adjoined to Manito Banquet and Party Center (309-968-7883),  which features beautiful wood trusses and a 50 year old wood floor recycled from Manito’s original High School Gymnasium. This space will hold up to 150 guests.

A visit to Willett’s Winery & Cellar will be a relaxing experience as you sample our wines that are created to please any palate, from dry oak-aged red (Leon Millot) to our very popular Cranberry Frost, made from 100% cranberry juice.


Closed for the winter months.
