In Galena, we are gearing up for the spring vineyard specials and getting ready for one of the largest wine tasting and food events in Illinois, Galena Wine Lovers’ Weekend---March 25-27. (free registration required)

The entire town comes alive to offer wine dinners, lodging packages, wine tastings and spa packages. Go on line and check it out. Last year, the Grand Tasting sold out three weeks before the event, so get you tickets early at wineloversweekend.com.  Because of the high demand for this event, we’ve added a second tasting, so you have the option of attending on either Friday or Saturday.

Our pick for wines to get you through the doldrums of winter are Galena Cellars “Proprietors Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon”- $20.50 --an elegant, full-bodied red wine that has a complex nose with hints of vanillin oak and a touch of pepper and spice, “Illinois Chambourcin”- $19.99 --this full-bodied red wine has notes of black cherry with nuances of plum and a subtle American oak finish….., and something fun for Valentine’s Day “Chocolate Port”- $30.50 --locally grown Illinois Frontenac grapes are fortified and infused with natural chocolate extracts for flavor. Ah Chocolate!! www.galenacellars.com
