This is a yearly stop for us. The wine tastings are reasonably priced and they have a nice variety. There is a lovely little patio to enjoy a glass of wine. They are very accommodating, offering to hold our purchases until we were heading home.

The winery was not crowded so we had very prompt service and the young lady pouring the samples was very pleasant. But, there was either no explanation or very little explanation about each wine. The Galena Cellars tasting room in Geneva always offers lots of...More
