These pictures are in and around the beautiful Rocky Waters vineyard near Galena Illinois. Great area for a short trip. Lots of history and food. Lots of food. The area is both quaint and beautiful. From a historic view it was the home of Ulysses Grant and 8 other Civil War generals. When i say its an historic area i mean it! I’ll do a whole pictorial and review of Galena soon, but for now a few from Rocky Waters. I love their Tower Red. Really a very good wine not just an Illinois tourist plug(so many bad wines here). The Tower Red is awesome and I really like the Hillside Rose as well. You can do a great Tasting here and it is just cool to walk around and look. Kyle Spahn runs a great place!

Look for a full Galena review soon including where I stayed and more. Great place and a cool easy trip. But seriously if you are someone who travels the Midwest and does the wine tastings at all the crappy wineries, this is really great wine and a fun experience. Cool building, interesting people and good wine.
