Galena Cellars celebrates the release of the 2024 Nouveau wine - The 40th Annual Celebration!

The parade of revelers will assemble at 2:30 p.m. for a trek around Galena’s Main Street in assorted modes of transportation and merriment from horse-drawn wagons to trollies as the 40th Annual Nouveau wine is delivered to Galena merchants who sport the Nouveau posters in their shop windows. Join in or watch the procession. “Le Beaujolias Nouveau est arrivé!”

Local restaurants and Galena businesses continue the celebration all weekend with live music, wine tastings, dinner specials and receptions.
