  • We stopped in on a cold day for a tasting and got some great warm apple cider! I'd love to go back when its warm to enjoy the view from the porch.  more »
  • Love stopping here when in Galena. They can get very busy, so you may have to wait. It's definitely worth the wait. I've been drinking there wines for 10 years. they have some of the best wines and ar...  more »
  • This vineyard was pretty far off the beaten path. My husband and I stopped on our way into Galena, and our GPS nearly lost signal in the middle of nowhere a couple of times. When we arrived, we were t...  more »

  • We went to this winery as part of a girls day out, and decided to start here. We got to the winery and right off the get-go we were very impressed that they definitely think of their guests first and foremost, as you pull up you see signs pointing you to their tasting room, as well as their rest rooms! The scenery is wonderful and it were there on a gorgeous 80+ degree day with sunshine and did the wine tasting and winery tour for $10, we got a chance to look at the entire wine processed from growing the grapes to the bottling of it. I would highly recommend the tour for you to get an idea of how this smaller scale winery works. As part of the tour we got to see a wedding setup in their bigger wine tasting/full bar area and it was just lovely. Really, the pictures do not do it justice! BOOK YOUR WEDDING here if you want a winery wedding, they also do outdoor weddings right in the middle of the vineyard. Hope this review helps, make sure to spend some time on the porch sipping some homemade Sangria or Bloody Mary made with the Jalapeno wine-- yum!
  • went with a bus trip of 25 people that was booked months in advance. they either forgot or didn't care. we were not welcomed and they were not prepared for us at all. not friendly or helpful. we were not allowed in the vineyard or buildings. we visited 2 other wineries that day and had great service and great experiences at those places but definitely not here. will not be back and many of us would not make a purchase because of the whole experience!
  • I always enjoy stopping in there, nice atmosphere and a very pretty area. Their wine is very good and a large variety.
  • Good wine, poor poor poor service. Took the wife to remember good times. We took the tour. Started nice with musician playing guitar. Guide appeared knowledgeable. It wasn't till the tasting when there was no room and no plan for the group to go and anyone new coming in the door took priority over the tour. This is not right! The bar was packed and that's great. However the bartender was rude, ignorant, and belittling. Enough so that I will not be coming back or purchasing any product as my experience was soured.
  • Very nice. Wine tour was unavailable the day we went but Susan did a terrific job at the wine tasting. Super nice and gave us great insight of the wines at Galena Cellars and area restaurants. Thank you!
