My best friend and I stopped in the tasting room on Main Street in galena. Not the actual winery. And we were not impressed. The people that worked there didn't greet us at all. She just put a glass and a paper in front of us and then told us how much the tasting is, no hello or anything. She... More

We spent a Wednesday afternoon cruising Galena’s Main Street, and we happened upon this tasting room. The wines are primarily from French hybrid grapes that are locally grown. My wife and I have tasted wine in the Napa, Sonoma, Anderson and Willamette valleys, and the Massbach wines hold their own with wines from these areas – very tasty. The woman... More

We visited the winery on Monday, august 3rd. Fantastic customer service, unlike Rocky Water s winery, they were awful!! Anyway, Massbach was very friendly, very knowledgeable of the wines, and the area in general. Very pretty place. Thank you, we will be back for more great wine!

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"!

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.
