Large Group Policy
Thank you for your interest in hosting your group at Galena Cellars! We are pleased to offer you and your guests a memorable experience during your visit to our locations.
Large Groups (8 or more guests)

Groups of 8 or more are welcome at our Downtown Location between the hours of 11 am and 1 pm, and our Vineyard Location between the hours of 12 pm and 2 pm. All tasting bar space and tables are on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not take reservations.

To accommodate you and your guests in the best manner possible, we ask for at least 48 hours prior notification before your planned arrival. We are available to take your calls 9am to 4pm, Monday through Friday.

Advanced notice of arrival can be made by calling us at 815-777-3330 or 815-777-3235, or emailing wine@galenacellars.com. This does not guarantee you a reservation or table, but allows us to be ready to receive your guests!

Please note:

  • All tasting bar space and tables are on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not take reservations.
  • We appreciate your help in keeping the winery a fun and safe place to enjoy with your friends and family.
  • Weekends and Holidays are busy days at the winery. Staff members are striving to serve
    everyone equally and ensure a quality wine experience. Intoxicated guests and/or guests with outside alcohol cannot be admitted.
Large Private Coach Bus Group Requests (25 or more guests)
  • Coach Buses are welcome Monday through Thursday, December through June, with advanced reservations.
  • No buses will be accepted on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Like many of the wineries in our area, we want to reduce over-crowding in our Tasting Room, and to provide a wonderful experience for all guests.
 

Please email wine@galenacellars.com to inquire about reserving your bus group visit.

Parties/Showers/Social Event Requests
We are not able to host birthday parties, showers, or other social events on weekends. Please reach out should you like to inquire about a mid-week date (Monday through Thursday). Please email wine@galenacellars.com to inquire about reserving your special event group visit.
