Wine Tasting Galena Style

September 25, 2017 by Cheryl Farruggia

UNLEASH YOUR WINE TASTING SENSES…..

Uncork your taste buds and indulge in the locally crafted wines that our charming Galena has to offer. White or Red, Dinner or Dessert, Silky or Oaked; how you like your wine is so personal.  There is no need for a trip to Napa Valley to enjoy a decadent wine tasting.  Galena has some of the best wines in the country and waiting to be uncorked and tasted.  The Massbach Ridge Winery in Elizabeth is just a short drive from the mansion and offers an amazing walkthrough of the wine making process.  Finish off your tour with some brilliant tastings of some of Illinois crafted wines.  Galena Vineyard and Wine Cellars is just a few minutes from the mansion and their gorgeous view is the perfect location to end a tour of the vineyard as you taste their award-winning wines.

There are many spectacular wineries in town for your delight.  Take a stroll through Jaime’s Wine Studio.  Enjoy a bit of cheese with your wine while visiting Galena River Wine and CheeseMassbach Ridge Winery Tasting Room in Galena and select one of this year’s brilliantly harvested wines.  For a more retro and unique spin on things stop in The Grape Escape and enjoy the atmosphere.  Galena Wine Cellars will amaze you with their abundant wine choices, their selection is fantastic and has the right pairing for an occasion.

Summer Fun it Happened so Fast

July 27, 2012 by Cheryl Farruggia

It seems like only yesterday that summer was approaching. I can hardly believe that July is over in a few short days and August will be upon us.  Never fear Galena has so many wonderful things to do every month of the year.  Here are some fun and exciting things to see and do on your getaway this August.

Jo Daviess County Fair is this August 2-4th.  What a wonderful opportunity to go to the carnival, play games, listen to music, and eat some yummifications.  Bring the kids, have a girls or guys retreat, or stroll the park hand in hand with that special someone (maybe you can win them a prize).  To view all the activities go to: http://www.jodaviesscountyfair.org/

Quilt Lovers this August 10-12th is the annual Galena/Jo Daviess Quilt Fest.  You are sure to enjoy some quilt-tastic fun this year.   For more information visit their Facebook page.

August 11-12th is the 7th Annual Market House Square Festival.  Many talented Artists will be displaying their artwork for your enjoyment and purchases.  To view pictures from last years events visit: http://www.hellogalena.org/news/2011-04-04_market_photos.htm

You may also be interested in the Vineyard tours, Ghost tours, and Mississippi River tours while the weather is still warm.  Call and book your room with us and we can help you plan some amazing adventures while you are visiting our beautiful town.
