One of the interesting phenomenons of growing up in our township serviced by the Ardon Depot was shipping livestock to the Chicago Union Station Stockyards (1865-1971).

Part of this phenomenon was the need for the area farmer to have a commission man sell livestock to one of the packing houses. In our case, being of Irish descent, we use an Irish commission man and my wife's family of German descent would use a German commission man. Every so often the farmer (sometimes with kids in tow) would ride the train with his livestock to meet the commission man and be part of the process.

The Irish and German farmers would often stay overnight at their respective commission man's home.

As a youth being able to go on one of these trips was considered a badge of honor, theoretical maturity and the occasional brag. Here is to a fading vestige of our past!

Commission Man Red is a dry red wine crafted from the Noiret grape. The wine has tastes of green and black pepper with a hint of mint.

Brand for Ardon Creek Vineyard & Winery
Ardon Creek Vineyard and Winery was founded on a 158-year-old family farm with a rich Irish Heritage. We proudly carry-on our family traditions of good stewardship of the land and promote a renewal of people working together to produce a quality product.

Ardon Creek is a family owned and managed operation established by Mike Furlong and his son, Chad Furlong, in 2008 to fulfill the promise of community and farm revitalization. Day-to-day vineyard and winery operations are managed by Mike, his wife Diane Furlong and a crew of local community members.

The vineyard is 4.1 acres in size and includes five varieties of winter-hardy grape vines. Our red grapes are Concord, Noiret, Chancellor and our white grapes are Edelweiss and LaCrosse. Our own juice is supplemented by the winter hardy varieties from the Finger Lakes wine region of New York. All of our wines are vinted, cellared and bottled in our own winery.
