My friends and I visited on the Halloween weekend party. Lucky for us. Our tour guide, looking like a child of the vineyard dressed in a plaid dress and boots with a hat on, started us out in the vineyard where a bride & groom had been for hundreds of years. Cool. As the tour train continued she was very... More

I went here with my fiancé and a friend. We each had a wine flight (choice of 3-4oz wines) for $10. It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and a musician was playing on his guitar. The settling and wine were our favorite part of our day trip to Galena. I would highly recommend the Mead wine!

We enjoyed our trip to this winery. The tour was interesting. They had great variety of wines at reasonable prices. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The patio was a great place to enjoy wine and take in the scenic views!

On a recent trip to Galena, my husband and I stopped by to take the tour of the vineyard and participate in the tasting. The staff was very friendly and our tour guide was wonderful. Love the wonderful variety of wine they have available...each one is very different from the next. Will be making some more wine purchases on future... More

Stopped by on our way out of town and found the tasting room nearly empty--worked with a very knowledgeable server to find 10 interesting tastes for $5! "Dry" reds and ports were great, and some of the fruit wines are delightfully refreshing rather than cloying. Enjoyed small glasses on the porch before heading home--would have been nice to have a...

The vineyard is a beautiful and fun place to visit! The tasting room employees are very friendly and will help you pick the perfect wine to purchase or sample. They offer chilled bottles that you may purchase and enjoy on the beautiful deck. They offer premade cheese trays or as we like to call them adult lunchables. They have crackers... More

We randomly stopped by the vineyard on our way back to Galena from Apple River and it was such a great experience. We did a wine tasting then purchased a few bottles of wine, some cheese, crackers and summer sausage and all hung out in their lawn. They have a beautiful view. Perfect relaxing afternoon. Delicious wine too!

The tasting room was very crowded when we arrived but we found a spot for two and proceeded to taste. If you want knowledge on the wines, I would suggest waiting until you have some one on one time because basically they just asked what we wanted and poured. The variety is very good and price reasonable. Following our tasting... More

Very interesting and fun tour of this winery. The wine tasting was informative, and the Reisling was delicious. Definitely put it on your list of things to do in Galena.
