Since 1985, this festival is for uncorking and decanning of the fall vintage is celebrating with special lunches, dinners, parade, party, jazz concert, poster signing and much more. The weekend activities get underway at noon on Friday, Nov. 18 when the new wine is officially released with a toast at Galena Cellar’s opening luncheon held at the Main Street location and the DeSoto House that day. Many area restaurants follow suit and celebrate with traditional French fare and wine-inspired luncheons. The afternoon festivities continue at 2:30 p.m. with a parade of revelers assembling for a trek down Galena’s Main Street in assorted modes of transportation and merriment from horse-drawn wagons to trollies as the Nouveau wine is handed out to Galena merchants who display the Nouveau posters in their shop windows.
