Historic Downtown Galena Location

Located at the south end of Main Street just inside the flood gates, Galena River Wine and Cheese is housed in one of Galena’s oldest commercial buildings - the Peck Building. Built in 1845 as a steamboat provisioning warehouse, the Peck Building has also house wine, liquor wholesalers and three creameries. Galena River Wine and Cheese has followed this tradition since 1982. With it’s location at the entrance to Main Street plus ample parking, Galena River Wine and Cheese is the ideal place to begin and end your historic tour of Galena.

Family Owned & Operated

Chicago transplants, Ken & Sandy Winge, opened the shop in 1982. We followed a similar path and purchased the shop in 2014 to continue the family experience for both our employees and customers.

Independent Producers

We seek out and work with small, family run businesses from around the world. It is who we are and who we look to support. In a time that rewards large producers from big box stores, it is the little guys that are keeping the world interesting.

Small Batch

Small batch producers take the raw material and try to produce their best representation to create a unique experience. To us, that is vastly superior to mass producing an identical experience over and over to fill shelves.
