Great Wine

What better to do on a 65 degree day in February than to enjoy a bottle of wine on the patio. The wine was great and the service even better.

After driving many miles in the rain, we were disappointed that the wines were not very good. Having visited wineries in Napa and Michigan and Galena Cellars, we did not taste anything worth buying. Prices seemed a bit steep also. There was a van of women tasting when we arrived who filled the bar area. Although the staff provided another... More

Disappointed after driving many miles that there was no view and winery is a Morton shed! Little atmosphere here!

As this was my first time to a winery and tasting it was very enjoyable and really beautiful. The grapes were still on the vines. Just stunning scenery and quite delicious wine!

We had a great time visiting Massbach with a wine tour group. Megan was very knowledgeable about the wines, history and area. We loved the wine and found it difficult to pick just which ones to take home with us. Wish we could buy their wines in Iowa! We will definitely return on our next trip to Galena. The tasting...

I love all the wines at Massbach. They are a family owned, and operated business. One that you will thoroughly enjoy visiting. Check their website for the upcoming festivals this fall.

My husband and I were in Galena for a couple of days on our motorcycles. We decided to check out a local vineyard. We ended up at Massbach. WOW...what a beautiful ride there! This place is small and family owned but so quaint. The wines were delicious, so we ended up buying a 1/2 case and had shipped! The staff... More

We enjoy very much going to Massbach's wine tasting room on Main Street in Galena, IL. The staff there, Amy and Nancy, are always incredibly knowledgeable, kind, fun, and we LOVE that they play country music! It keeps us coming back for more!
