Best wine tasting I've ever done! Delicious wine with great service. I honestly enjoyed each wine I picked out - and I appreciated the recommendations by the staff. I loved how we could choose our own wine picks from a wide variety and we weren't rushed. We could take as long as we wanted and really enjoy the tasting. It... More

We always try to visit new wineries wherever we go. We visited the tasting room in downtown galena. It has many fun things to look at and I appreciated the advice during our tasting. They have a cute little courtyard to sit and enjoy a drink but it would have been nice for them to have had some stools at... More

When we visit Galena from the UK we always have to stop at the Galena Wine cellars where the staff are so friendly and t there is a wonderful selection of wines at reasonable prices. This means we can stock with wine for our US visit without spending a fortune. Hopefully we wil return again in the near future.

We went into the shop on Main Street for a tasting. The woman who was pouring, was just delightful! We walked through the store and found several items to purchase as well as several bottles of wine. She was checking us out at the register, when another woman, who I can only presume was an owner, came from somewhere and... More

I expected a better tour, tasting and overall better wine. We would not go back. It was okay to go once. However, they were kid friendly and personal during our time there. The location is out of town and easy to find.

I am a wine person; I try wines from all over the world: France, Italy, California, Argentina, Chile, even China. I am not convinced that Midwest wineries can produce satisfying wines. Several wines produced by Galena Cellars are among the worst I have tasted. High acidity, added flavorings, strong aftertaste are among the reasons this winery fails for me. I've... More

Great service on our wine tasting, the ladies were very knowledgeable and friendly. Loved the wine selection and the shop. Highly recommended stop. Galena was an adorable little city with a lot of character and the roads were a fun drive!

A couple of my girlfriends and I went to Galena for a girlfriend getaway. We decided to sign up for Galena Cellar's Murder Mystery dinner and were not disappointed. The dinner started with light appetizers (cheese, crackers, fruit) and introduction of the characters that was funny and interactive. The murder mystery was a lot of fun and held our attention...
