Excellent wine tasting room. Huge selection to choose from. We choose 6 wines and they added 1 house selection for a total price of $5. Narrowing down our favorites was difficult because they all so good. Great place to take a break from shopping! Wish they had some seats or stools to rest our tired feet.

We stopped in for a tasting. We were able to choose 6 wines. I don't know if it's just me, but I didn't care for any of them. Perhaps it's the ones I chose. We did not purchase any bottles. Our friends purchased one bottle of the Wedding Cake wine, that was the only one they liked out of their... More

Our second visit there. Wanted to return while we were in the area to pick up a couple of bottles for a Christmas present! Mimosa and Sangarita are delicious. My husband also found a really good reisling. Nice little deck to sit and have a glass of wine. They also offer tours.

Wine was average, I bought the Sangria but didn't really like many of the other wines. Kinda boring, wish we wouldn't have wasted our time going.

We went on a Saturday morning during a very busy time in Galena. We hadn't been downtown yet, so we didn't know there was a festival going on. There were probably 20-30 other people at the vineyard when we were there, plus another 20 who were there for an arts and craft thing. In no way was it crowded but... More

Always enjoy wine tastings! Always, always pick up late harvest Riesling-a favorite! Store manager was very helpful and accommodating on an especially busy fall weekend!

We had a great time visiting Gallena Cellars Vineyard while on a wine tour. The only downfall is there are too many wines to choose from! Especially when there is not a bad one on the list. The wine tasting servers were very busy, but very friendly and answered any questions we had. They could use a bigger wine tasting... More

Has a lot of fun tasting the wine. They allowed for lots of testing and recommendations. We ended up buying 2 bottles as we are not huge wine drinkers but there is certainly something for everyone there. The staff was very helpful and informative.

$5 for a tasting of 6 wines. They offer reds, whites, bubbly, fruit wines, ports and others. Their bottle prices are reasonable and everything you taste is in stock. The employees are knowledgeable about the wines and the grapes used.
