Where should I park?


Turner Hall is a relatively short walk from anywhere in downtown Galena if the weather is nice! Turner hall is located on South Bench Street which runs parrell with Main Street, there is a short hill or small steps of stairs to get there.




What should I wear?


Casual dress is fine for the WLW Grand Tastings, however some guests will dress up (like you would for a night out to dinner and a show). This is definitely not a formal affair. Have fun and wear comfortable shoes! You’ll be on your feet for 2+ hours.
