Wineries & Vineyards

Take a trip to the country and enjoy the view at the vineyard – or the vineyard with a view! Experience the essence of Galena Cellars wine as you take in the spectacular view of the country vineyard and learn about the wine-making process.

Acres of rolling farmland hosting 22 different specialty grapes, 60,000 gallons of wine per year, 40 wine varieties, three tasting rooms and thirty plus years later and many cherished friendships, the Lawlors are proud to have created a family legacy… that now spans three generations.

Get in on a vineyard tour and experience first-hand how Galena Cellars wine is made, enjoy a wine tasting or simply relax on the spacious wrap-around deck with your favorite glass of wine. Or better yet, stay with them a little longer.

The vineyard hosts a cozy guest suite and a quaint guest house. Perfect for family get-togethers, a romantic getaway, or girls’ night out. The Galena Cellars Vineyard offers a private and one-of-a kind experience in their heated Igloos. They have created a unique and memorable setting, with seating for up to 6 guests.

The countryside atmosphere at the vineyard offers a variety of private facility options to consider for your wedding ceremony and/or reception, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower or any other special event that you may be looking for a unique destination to facilitate it at.

Furry friends (well-behaved dogs) are welcome to enjoy the vineyard. Pet owners are responsible and accept full liability for the actions of their pet and interactions with other guests and pets on the premises.
