November 22nd  – 23rd  Nouveau Wine Weekend -

The weekend officially kicks off Friday at 2:30 pm when the familiar “clip clop” of horse hooves will be heard throughout Galena’s downtown. On board the horse-drawn wagons sporting revelers is a celebrated guest that will have the entire town in merriment all weekend—Galena Cellars’ Nouveau wine.

Local restaurants embrace the celebration, offering traditional Nouveau-inspired luncheons and wine tastings, live music and receptions. Throughout the weekend, wine lovers can also enjoy vineyard tours (Galena boasts three area vineyards), winemaker dinners, wine-inspired pampering such as spa and shopping specials.  With nightly WineTime and only a short walk to all the festivities, Farmers Guest House is the place to stay!
