Wine and Chocolate Lovers Weekend at Galen Glen in February
Galen Glen Winery has partnered with Chocolatier Steve Evans of Lancaster to create two exciting new chocolate truffles made from their award-winning wines.
In February, visitors to the winery will have the opportunity to purchase a pairing featuring these delectable treats. The truffles will be part of what the winery is calling "The Triple Treat." For $3 visitors may purchase a pairing of 3 oz. of wine plus three mouth-watering truffles.
One of the three truffles is a Dark Chocolate Chambourcin, made with wine of the same name. The next is a Zweigelt Salted Caramel infused with Galen Glen's Zweigelt, an Austrian grape they grow in Andreas. Finally, the third amazing truffle is Winemaker Sarah Troxell's favorite, the Double-Dark. Truffles will also be available in a half-pound box for purchase.
At Galen Glen, we farm wine. Ancient glacial soils atop millions of years old sea fossils form our topography. The land was patiently waiting for us, yielding only scrawny crops for our ancestors. As 6th generation stewards of our farm, we sustainably and respectfully balance nature and science. Our wines reflect a delicate tension of acid and ripeness, punctuated by a powerful sense of location.
