Gift shop full of wine items and tour of the vineyards is a pretty drive in the country that is very informative. Very interesting & informative.
Makes a visitor want to purchase their wines.

$3 will buy you your choice to taste 5 locally produced wines at the counter. Most of the wines were nothing special in my opinion, but the people you meet while there were nice and the experience was enjoyable. The wines were priced from $10 to $20 per bottle and there was a discount if you paid a $25 fee to become a member of their wine club.

There is also a fairly large gift shop with various and somewhat unique wine themed items for sale. Definitely worth the time to stop in and see as you spend your day shopping on Main streeet.

The hotel desk clerk at Eagle Ridge informed us of a wine-tasting festival, so we went there in the afternoon. It was a wonderful afternoon and we got to taste many varieties of wine and listen to great music. There was an art show and a grape-stomping event that were fun as well. We bought some wine and just opened a bottle last night for family to rave reviews.

The tour was wonderful and the guide was full of knowledge and very approachable, you came to love the vineyard in a short time like it was your own. The wine was delicious and the entire experience was my favorite in Galena. I would suggest the Apple wine :)

We visited on Sunday afternoon. Took the tour and did the tasting.
Janet who does both was wonderful.
We learned a lot and tasted quite a few different products.
Almost had to stop the tastings since we were getting a little tipsy.
