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.

We wanted to visit a local vineyard on our trip to Galena. Galena Cellars is easy to drive to from Galena, and it is beautiful countryside. Really neat place to visit, very friendly and very good selection of good wines. Well worth the trip!
