Carterville is a charming, small town in the heart of Southern Illinois, an area many refer to as the “heartland.”  Within 1.5 to 4 hours from favorite American cities of St. Louis, Nashville, Louisville, Lexington, and Memphis, Carterville is nestled as a gateway to fast-growing Southern Illinois Wine Country.  In fact, this town is within an hour to 29 wineries you can enjoy in this region.
