Illinois has more than 100 wineries and vineyards located all across the state and the Galena area is is no exception. Galena wineries offer samples, tours, and sales – both of their own wines and often other local products. Stop in and sample some of the best from Illinois Wine Country!
Part of wine’s attraction is that it is an expression of a region’s culture and of the vineyard that produced it. Consequently, visiting a winery or vineyard gives you that much more insight into your wine. Plus it’s a lot of fun! Avoid the crowds and visit midweek for the best experience.
Galena is home to two wineries with two others quite close by. You can enjoy a tasting and tour the two Galena wineries, or take a short drive outside of town to visit either of the other two in the area. Or you could make a day of it and create your own Galena Wine Trail by visiting them all!
