These aren't your parents wines!

Step out into the scenic Fox River and the beautiful old towns that supported the economy based on river and rail transportation. While the days of steamboats and locomotives are in the distant past, you will find wonderful wine tasting rooms in these towns.

Sample wine made from grapes grown in Illinois and around the Midwest. You'll experience flavor and aroma profiles that differ drastically from wines made in California and Europe. Visit three tasting rooms along the Fox River and indulge in a gourmet lunch along the way. You'll enjoy a day outside of the normal loop and see some sights off the beaten path.

  • I have taken two tours with Vimbly and am looking forward to many more in the future! They have a wide variety of opportunities, many of which I would never have thought of doing. Both tours that I attended were well organized, interesting, and fun. I look to Vimbly for ideas and activities when I want to find something fun to do.

  • Used Vimbly 3 times now: booked a Knife Skills class at Institute of Culinary Education, booked tickets to Improvised Shakespeare (HOW DID THEY EVEN GET ACCESS TO THESE???), and booked tickets to an Improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade. Really simple and efficient way to find something to do and book it right away without ever having to pick up a phone. I like that you can search by date and also category.

  • As far as a rating, I'd absolutely give your site a 10. It's easy to use, easy to find whats upcoming, unambiguous and concise. It's something my mother could use without calling me seven times with questions. I've already pointed some friends to the site, and you can be sure I'll be using it in the future.

  • is a powerful “secret weapon” for impressing your friends and improving your dating life! Vimbly’s like having a friendly concierge in your pocket with a vast selection of super fun ideas of things to do in the city – everything from how to wow a first date to putting together a fun activity for your peeps. Vimbly hooks you up with a no hassle booking process and makes you seem like an expert in what’s going down in the city.

  • I already have recommended it to a friend! Several in fact. The site is such a good idea and I love how the people at Church Street knew we were coming and treated us like their own customers and not coupon redeemers. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going back there and are already looking on your site for what to do next weekend.

  • Easily one of the best dates I've been on, and I have Vimbly to thank for the idea. Planning to use it again while I'm in the city for the next month, and already reminded my coworkers about it.
