Forget Italy and France. When it comes to wine, our very stars and stripes have lots to offer. Find out about the great grapes in our backyard with today's deal from Willett's Winery & Cellar. Pay $40 for a winery tour with tapas and a collector's glass to take home on May 19 (an $85 value). At this eight-acre Manito vineyard, established in 2005, you'll start at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour, then move to a pairing session with six samples of wine and five tapas dishes with Chef Kevin. Willett's vintages include a semi-dry Frontenac, winner of the 2009 Governor's Cup Award; Vignoles, a semi-sweet wine similar to a Riesling; and a variety of fruit-based selections made with apples, blueberries, and strawberries. About an hour southwest of Peoria, this winery represents the best of the red, white, and blue.
