  • I first visited Rocky Waters a year ago and had a wonderful conversation with the owner, Kyle. He was very thorough and detailed about the wines, the grapes they came from and the production of the wi...  read more »
  • One of our favorite wineries! From dry to sweet...didn't taste anything we didn't like/appreciate! A MUST for wine trail! 
  • If you like Blush type wines, then this is your place! I'm not a huge fan but my palate is slowly starting to enjoy the different taste these wines bring. Their tasting portions were very small so it ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Worst experience ever. Beautiful place but sad to say the service was horrible and the gentleman behind the counter was rude and pushy. Went with family sat at the bar and waited patiently for 20min before being asked "What do you want" then before we answered he told us to hold on so he could clean tables and try helping somebody he must of known. Then when he came back told us he only had 4 of the 9 wines they offered. Which they were blushes, and we wanted something that was dry red, so we decided to leave and that is when he became really rude to us in front of other people. He said "What, you don't like blushes!!" We said we were looking for something dryer. He replied "Well, don't let the door hit you!!". Highly NOT recommended.
  • A must see!!! Can't believe how much I enjoy thier wine.
