The wines sampled here were rich, well rounded and each was well distinguished. This vineyard has one of the best well rounded Riesling that does NOT cost $50-60/bottle. Also they have a number of reds which were warm medium bodied without the bite of high tannins. They also have a large selection of fruit wines though not tasted hold real... More

This place was amazing. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. There were so many wines to taste. We each bought a bottle to take home with us and when we drink it we will be reminded of the wonderful afternoon we had. Will definitely have to visit again.

$10 for 6 wines and a tour - pretty worth it. The tour guide doesn't seem to be as knowledgeable, but she does help to find out the answers to certain questions. The wines are normal, nothing spectacular. The vineyard is small, so don't expect too much.

A group of girl friends went to the tasting room on Main Street in Galena. We were amazed at the variety of wines to taste. The atmosphere is inviting and the staff members were very knowledgeable about the wines and shared information about each wine we tried. We had a fabulous time.
