Have you been dreaming of an elegant outdoor affair you will never forget? The Weingarten’s wedding ceremony and wedding reception venues are unlike any other. Surrounded by the beautiful countryside our natural landscape offers a picturesque setting for your wedding ceremony and wedding reception. Our winery feels miles away from it all but is actuality less than 10 minutes from the nearest hotel in Belleville, Illinois and less than 20 miles from St. Louis, Missouri! Developed, owned and operated by family members Shannon and Jeff Gastreich and Kevin Bollman (natives of Belleville and the surrounding area), The Weingarten pays tribute to the German heritage of the area by keeping with the “rustic” nature of an old farmstead. An original concrete stave silo serves as our centerpiece while an antique cattle feeding area has been converted to outdoor seating. A beautiful pond, walking trail, and even a 200 year old cemetery invite you to explore.
