  • Drove up the winding road to have a tasting. Thankfully, the host told us most his wines were dry. We like the sweet ones, so we ended up not doing the tasting, but we walked around outside. Unfortuna...  more »
  • Our first stop in 3 stops for our wine tasting. Felt very rushed. The wine we were given had very unusual smells and tasted like they smell. Was a very bad experience for the $6.50 we paid. Will not g...  more »

  • One of nicer wineries in the Galena area. Nestled in the rolling hills of northwest part of Illinois. Very clean and with a very knowledgeable gentleman who explained the wines of the area. Will definitely return the next trip to Galena.
  • This was my second visit to the winery while traveling from MA. What I enjoy are regional wines, made from grapes that are grown to withstand the climate of the area they are grown and not standard "popular wines". Being poured wines while hearing how the grape is grown is processed is always exciting and interesting rather than larger wineries that may just give you a brief descriptor. Priced competitively, the wines were delicious and refreshing from dry to semidry. The conversation makes the tasting much more enjoyable. Also, it was nice to be remembered from visiting last year. Definitely a stop worth making again on a future visit.
  • Thank you, Kyle for an excellent Rocky Waters experience. The wine is delicious. We bought three bottles! Kyle took the time to explain the history of the winery. He also explained what makes this wine taste better that others. The winery is gorgeous. I love that you can sit and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings while sharing a great bottle of wine. A must stop on our way to Galena.
  • We arrived just before closing in what is really the off season. The owner welcomed us. He was very personable, was able to explain each wine in detail. It was very informative as well as fun. Yes, as someone mentioned, they were all out of whites. And though that may be have been disappointing, I didn't see it as a fault. They use only ONLY THEIR OWN GRAPES. Other vineyards bring grapes in from California or Michigan or other places. To me, that's a little misleading. At Rocky Waters, the wine is from right there or they dont service. I liked that idea a lot! Buy Local!
  • It was hard for my group to actually choose something we did like about this place. Don't get me wrong, it was a beautiful place and the atmosphere was wonderful. However, the wine is completely horrible. We didn't like a single one we tasted. We felt they all tasted the same. They were also completely out of white wine so that was really disappointing.
