Frequently Asked Questions


Yes, that’s a great idea! Guests can purchase a Wine Club Membership in the name of the person it is being gifted to or you can give us a call and designate a month, a quarter, or an entire year of your membership to be gifted for either pick up or shipment. All State and Federal laws apply.

A reservation for dinner service is recommended at the Winery. On occasion the Winery closes weddings and other private events. A reservation is the best way, not only to make sure that the Winery is open on the date that you would like to visit, but also to ensure you will not have to wait to be seated.

A reservation is also suggested Ristorante di Acquaviva to ensure that a table is waiting for you and your guests at the time you wish to dine.

In a word, yes. Every single grape that we crush, ferment, and place in a barrel on reserve at Acquaviva Winery, and bares the Acquaviva label is grown on the vineyard estate. The entire winemaking process from grape to bottle happens right here at Acquaviva Winery in Maple Park, IL.

When a barrel has become too old to reliably age wine on reserve, it is retired. Retired wine barrels are recycled and reused on the vineyard estate. They are used in weddings and celebrations as décor, they are cut in half and used to start seedlings for the gardens and orchard, we use them as planters and concierge tables. We do not sell the retired barrels.
