Fred E. Koehler, founder of Lynfred Winery, also considered the father of the Illinois wine industry, was a business savvy man and self-taught winemaker whose aspiration to produce wines of excellence earned him the title of a legend.

Wine and wine-making was a way of life for Lynn and Fred Koehler. Once the decision was made to open a winery, Fred and Lynn researched for the perfect setting for a while and stumbled upon the gorgeous 1912 home in Roselle, complete with stained glass windows in a grapevine pattern. The vision for Lynfred Winery was clear from the beginning: to be an extension of their guests’ living rooms, a second home. 

True to Fred and Lynn’s vision, Lynfred Winery now offers a four-suite bed and breakfast that provides an intimate, Napa-style experience through their themed suites. Stress will melt away amidst a lush and glorious landscape and the breathtaking beauty of the property. Guests can nourish the mind, body and soul with a relaxing combination of elegant accommodations. At the end of the day, retreat to a restful suite that features heated floors, heated towel racks, woodburning fireplaces and more. All stays include a private wine cellar tour, a premium tasting of eight wines, a fresh fruit and cheese tray, homemade chocolate truffles and a made-to-order gourmet breakfast. It is that special treatment that keeps guest coming back. The winery offers tours, tastings, private events and fresh-baked bread every morning.
