Very busy, but worth the wait. Did not take the tour, but did do the samples. Bartenders are very knowledgeable and give you time even though they are very busy. Wine is reasonably priced and the variety is very good. Definitely worth stopping in.

Wonderful wine at a wonderful venue in downtown Galena. Great service by Lannette who really made our day by answering questions about the area as well as helping us decide on a wine for the evening. Don’t miss this gem in a wonderful little town.
