Sunshine and Riesling event this weekend at Galen Glen

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Riesling ice cream!

On Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22 Galen Glen Winery will team with O Wow Cow Creamery of Ottsville, Pennsylvania to kick off the summer season with everyone's favorite frozen treat.  The "Sunshine & Riesling" event will feature an ice cream or sorbet made from Galen Glen's Riesling wine.

Galen Glen will be offering a complimentary pairing of the ice cream and Riesling wine on Saturday,  from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday from noon to 5 pm.  Riesling is the perfect wine for summer meals as it is a refreshing wine with flavors of apples, pears, honey melons and a lick of wet slate. In addition, it pairs well with crab cakes, barbeque chicken, ribs, and salads.

Galen Glen is known for their award-winning Germanic-style white wines. Most recently, the Rieslings were awarded a gold medal in the Riverside International Wine Competition and a silver medal in the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.

O Wow Cow is also no stranger to winning awards for their organic, locally-sourced ice creams and sorbets.  They were recently named one of the Top Ten Ice Cream Shops in America by The Huffington Post. Owner, John Fezzuoglio, is known for his unique creations that are sure to excite every palate. While this is not the first dessert made from wine, it is the first time O Wow Cow is creating an ice cream from wine sourced through a Lehigh Valley Wine Trail winery.
