Galena Cellars is a nice place to visit. You can taste the different wines but they only allow one free taste and they charge you for any tasting after that's this has changed from when we were here two years ago. We tasted a cranberry wine and bought a bottle of it, very good. They have a lot of different... More

The tasting room on Main St. in Galena was a nice place. They held our wine purchases until we were ready to leave so the wine didn't have to sit in a hot car nor did we have to carry it around. Very nice people and a fun shop for all things wine. There is a bunch of shops and... More

I took my father with me to see the Galena vineyard. since we got there 30 min. earlier for the next tour, we paid for tasting 3 different wines of our preference and we did the tasting next to the vineyards. At the back of the store (main entrance) they have a nice sitting area with tables, chairs and red... More

My husband and I travelled to Galena for a little getaway and took a side-trip to the Galena Cellars Vineyard for a wine tasting. We were able to browse an art show where local artists were showing homemade baskets, antique maps, hand-crafted jewelry, oil paintings and watercolor paintings. The farm is quite clean and includes a beautiful red barn and... More

My husband and I love Galena. We always stop at the Galena Cellars Winery and we have also been to the vineyard a few miles away from downtown Galena. The wine selection is typical for the midwest but we enjoy it (The Galena Red is our favorite--simple and under $13). In the fall, they offer mulled wine samples that warm... More

Went to Galen for a christmas vacation and happen to go to this place for some wine tasting. I have never been here before but my sister had recommended it. Super cheap for wine tasting and a lot of choices to pick from. It makes you want to taste them all! We had a great time. The lady who was... More

This is a great place to sit around and sample wine. The selections are delicious and the prices are great. Great way for couples to spend some time together.

What an incredible weekend for Galena Cellars and the Galena community. The Friday release of the Nouveau wine was fun, enlightening and full of flavor, especially the peasant stew served at Chef Ivo's Place located directly above Galena Cellar's Main Street retail location. Then later nearly 1,000 citizens and visitors lined the West side of Main St in an attempt... More

I'm a non drinker but I make an exception for their wine. It's fantastic. The grape wine and the moscato are delish!!! I've also bought several other items like wine glass and bottle topper. Very good prices!! Location is great.
