The Scales Mound location is beautiful and stay for the sunset!!! Lots of outdoor seating but mainly the wine bar inside!

Did the tasting at the vineyard (not the downtown storefront) and it was great. Very informative and lively staff. Tasty wines. Worth the short drive out of Galena.

We have been fans of their wine for quite awhile. However, we have never visited the winery. On a busy Saturday afternoon plan to spend time waiting to get to the bar to sample. All of their wines are delicious. Enjoy!

We took a tour of the vineyard where our tour guide explained how grapes become wine, we watched as the grapes were crushed, and tasted several wines. The staff was very friendly and we found several wines that we liked well enough to bring home.

Enjoyed the wine and vineyard. We waited around for the tour but it was not up to our expectations. The tour was very short and the bottling machinery was being repaired.
