Wonderful wine tasting experience! They were very busy but they didn't rush you. They have a huge selection of different wines to try. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Cant wait to go back when the weather is nice.

Absolutely. Galena is a great place to go at any age. I would recommend that you stay as close to town if not in the town at a bed and breakfast. Otherwise you will have to drive to a motel, most of which are on Rt 20 both... More
