Thanks to these MAJOR SPONSORS for supporting the 2017 event:




Since Ottawa’s very first wine festival in 2010, the City of Ottawa has been pleased to partner with Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Association. Thank you, IGGVA, for bringing Illinois’ finest wines to the summer’s most popular fest – Ottawa 2 Rivers Wine Fest.

The Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Association (IGGVA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing the viticulture and enology interests of Illinois through information exchange and cooperation among Illinois grape producers and vintners.

At Tangled Roots Brewing Company, they’re about beers, not bandwagons. Flavors, not fads. Liquids, not labels. This is beer done right. With an appreciation for natural elements, and an aversion to pretense. With a devotion to craft, a dedication to authenticity, and a respect for where we came from.

A respect for our roots.
