Lynfred Winery now has a street named after it in Roselle.

The village board recognized Lynfred Winery for its longtime commitment to community involvement by dedicating 4th Avenue, between Elm Street and Main Street in Roselle, as Lynfred Lane.

The dedication of Lynfred Lane kicked off Lynfred Winery's 37th Annual Oktoberfest, Pig Roast and Grape Stomp and was attended by winery guests, staff and family of Lynfred Winery's late founder, Fred Koehler.

Lynfred Winery has been open in Roselle since 1979. According to Roselle Mayor Andy Maglio, Lynfred Winery helped make Roselle's town center, and the greater community, a destination that people want to visit. "Not only are they a world-class winery and bed & breakfast, they are an incredible community partner," he said.

Lynfred Winery is the oldest and largest, continuously-operating, family winery in Illinois, producing more than 70 varietals and 30,000 cases of fine wine per year. Since 1979 Lynfred Winery has offered guests the finest vintages, gourmet cuisine and luxurious lodging. Lynfred has also expanded its reach with tasting rooms located in Wheaton, Naperville and Wheeling.
