Ice wine returns to Galen Glen later this month

Ice wine time

While many have complained about the bitter-cold winter, remember every cloud has a silver lining.  Or in our case a liquid gold lining. These cold nights allowed us to again produce an ice wine. Sarah has just returned from Germany where she was told the wine is perfect. On Saturday, March 29 and Sunday, March 30 you will have the opportunity to sip perfection. Join us for a complimentary pairing of our Ice Wine with a Riesling bread pudding with Ice Wine cream topping.

Visitors from near and far

On Monday, February 17 Galen Glen hosted some special guests for a tasting. Mark Chien, Penn State University Vitaculturalist; an admired wine expert from California, Clark Smith, of Appellation America who enjoys writing, teaching and singing about wine (we were serenaded that day); and Craig LaBan, restaurant critic and drink columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer.  It was a honor to share our wines and their company. Be sure to read Craig's newspaper article.

Important Case Club updates

Thank you to everyone who came in to renew their annual case club membership during February.  We trust you are enjoying the benefits of membership. Please mark your calendar for Friday, June 13 and Saturday, August 2 when we will host our exclusive Case Club events. We have not yet scheduled any winemakers dinners. However, as soon as we do, all 5,000 active Case Club members will be the first to learn of the dates, times and locations. That's right, locations. The new year is bringing some exciting changes to our winemaker's dinners. Not a member of the case club? Here's some info on it.

New vintages and upcoming events

March is a very exciting time in the tasting room as we debut many new vintages. Keep watching your email, inbox "like" us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter for updates on our new vintages that will soon be available for tasting.

2014 is a very exciting year full of fun events and opportunities to taste new wines, enjoy some time in the vineyard on a tour, and make new friends. Check out our calendar of events and plan to join us.

We invite you to be our guest and enjoy the tranquil beauty of the vineyard. We believe wine should be tasted where it's grown, with those involved in nurturing it from the soil to the glass. All wine to be enjoyed on our property is sold by-the-glass only. We require reservations for groups larger than five people. Reservations may be made by calling the winery at 570-386-3682. Please plan early as our reservation openings fill quickly for weekend dates.
