Galena Cellars Vineyard and Winery

Galena Cellars Vineyard and Winery Review

There are plenty of ripe reasons to make a stop at Galena Cellars: nearly 20 award-winning wines in 2011 alone; best white wine from Illinois; and winemaker Christine Lawlor-White, who was twice voted Illinois Winemaker of the Year. In-season vineyard tours guide you through the growing grapes and let you in on the winemaking process. Turn your visit into a romantic retreat by booking the upstairs guestroom. A downtown Galena location (515 S. Main St.) holds tastings daily.
