WINE TASTINGS & TOURS
The Galer Estate winery tasting room is located in the heart of the Brandywine Valley, Chester County, Pennsylvania, just behind the world famous Longwood Gardens.
Please consult our New Guidelines page for the most up to date information.
Wine tastings are Friday & Saturday 12-8pm, and Sunday 12-7pm.
Reservations are no longer required - walk-ins arewelcome.
Wine tastings are $15 per person, each consisting of four 1 oz pours.
The wine glasses (stem and stemless) are available for purchase. They are not complimentary with the tasting.
Galer Estate offers many locally sourced food items including fresh baked baguettes, locally made cheese, and spreads.
We also welcome you to bring any additional food pairings.
Tours of the vineyard & winery are Saturdays in September and October for an additional fee. Tours are by group and involve walking in our production area, outside on grass, rocks, slippery surfaces, and through the vineyard. Please dress for the weather and the terrain. Tours involve a taste out of a barrel or tank.
The design of the winery is a mixture of style and function, using state of the art equipment, engineered gravity flow and an open floor design, this functionality is encompased within an artistic setting of old-world architectural elements, stained glass, paintings, repurposed barnwood, marble and iron fencing. Most of the aesthetic touches come from other places-- the marble on the tasting bar comes from the steps of Independence Hall, the 1890s deck doors come from an eastcoast bank, the pediment comes from a mansion in New York. The aesthetics of the winery are all in the wonderful details; everything has a story, just like the wine.
Indoor and outdoor seating is available seasonally. The main deck overlooks the beautiful Red Lion Chardonnay Vineyard, and in the colder months the tasting room moves to the cozy Red Lion Tasting Room, with a stone fireplace and hand hewn timber ceiling.
Outside alcohol, pets, and guests under 21 are not permitted on Galer Estate property.
Unfortunately we cannot accommodate busses, limos or vans.
