Plan Your Escape to our Northern Illinois Winery

I’m Peggy Harmston, winemaker and owner of Massbach Ridge Winery.  I am inviting you to come out to our vineyard and winery to discover our fabulous wines, grown right here.  

We’ve been here for over a decade and love to talk with people that keep coming back because they love the wine, friendly service and just sitting and enjoying each other:  Either here at the winery (10 miles off Hwy 20) or at our downtown tasting room in Galena.

Whether you’ve been drinking fine wines for years or just starting to discover wine,  we guarantee you will find a wine you love.

We look forward to seeing you!

“Where Everyday is a Celebration!”

In the tranquil rolling hills of northwest Illinois, Massbach Ridge Winery has been crafting estate grown wines since 2003. With a diverse selection of estate-grown Illinois wine, our friendly staff will help you discover a taste you’ll fall in love with.

Escape your hectic schedule and exhale at our family owned and operated winery in Jo Daviess County. Venturing off Hwy 20 to or from Galena to the winery and vineyard will make your visit to Northern Illinois most memorable. Spend the day with us to unwind and enjoy the view of 18 rolling acres of vineyard and quiet countryside from our outdoor patio. When the weather cools, join us by the fire inside. Or just stop out to pick up a bottle to enjoy with dinner.

Join us for a wine tasting and vineyard tour at one of our upcoming events.   Toast 10 Years with us!  We’ll send you home renewed and with wine grown and made in treasured Northern Illinois.
