We stopped in for a tasting and decided to purchase a couple of cases of wine for our wedding. This was a little something extra for everyone to leave with and remember the night. The manager helping us was very sweet and friendly. Cannot wait to open the Reserve and share it with my new hubby.

We stopped in and did a tasting like we usually do. We bought 2 cases of wine for our wedding the following day. Everyone took some home and we were lucky to have a bottle for ourselves. We usually stop in there every time we go to Galena. We have never been to the vineyard.

Although we didn't visit the actual winery, we visited the shop in Galena and was a nice little surprise. We paid $5 to sample 6 different wines. The host was a nice woman. They have some really nice dry wines. The bottles are very affordable! I recommend "Dandelion"!

And yes the girlfriend made me get in and stomp those grapes insuring blackmail for years to come. Lol. But the was amazing... More

We enjoyed the tasting very much and were pleasantly surprised; out of the 6 wines tasted, we liked all of them. This has never happened before. That's impressive. Staff was very outgoing and helpful ! Highly recommended.

We always enjoy visiting this winery when we are in the area. They have an annual Wine Stomp Festival in September. An afternoon of games, Wine Tasting, Music, & Cheese plates etc. You can bring a picnic lunch if you'd like also.Just a fun relaxing time.

Loved the fact that most of the wines were estate grown. My husband and I visit a lot of wineries all over the country. The quality at Massbach very much impressed us. If you like the hybrid grapes grown in WI / MN / IL, you should definitely visit this winery.

Revisited the tasting room on our second trip to Galena because we loved our purchases last time. Tried new wines and loved them too. Great atmosphere, good wine prices, quality wine.

We went to this one in Galena. We would definitely go back. The girl working behind the counter was extremely friendly, knew what she was talking about and very accommodating, plus, she was FUN to talk to. The price is excellent as well, for wine tasting....6 choices for just $5 and it wasn't just a "sip" that you got in... More
