Galen Glen Vineyard (written Mar 11, 2011)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Taken many trips to Galen Glen. Truly a hidden jewel in Pennsylvania wines. It is tucked away in the shadow of the Blue Mountain. A short drive from the Valley, but well worth it. The winery staff is among the friendliest, most polite, and helpful around. They have added a second cash register to remedy the long lines at wine sales, which really was the only qualm I had with the winery. Food and wine pairings here are always excellent. The dumplings and vidal blanc pairing I had at March Madness was out of this world. They always have the most original pairings on the trail. The view from the tasting room and back porch is breathtaking. Sitting out back on a summer day enjoying a glass of wine is a perfect way to spend a weekend. The winemakers dinners (available to case club customers first) are always a blast. The 5 course meal is always well put together and the wine pairings are spot on. I especially enjoy the soups. Now on to the wines. I have yet to come in contact with a flawed wine here. Not all of their wines suit my tastes, but there is not a flawed wine on their list. I personally am more of a white wine person, enjoying their Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, and Gewurztraminer the most. On the red side, the 2008 Chambourcin is among the best I have encountered on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail. If you like ports, the new vintage of Barrel 29 with chocolate is delectable. Moving on to dessert wines, the Vidal Blanc Ice Wine is the real steal. Any Eiswein enthusiast knows how pricy these wines are due to the painstaking process to make this treat. This wine has an incredible nose, and when it hits the tongue it does not disappoint. It explodes with tropical flavors (apricots, pineapple) and finishes clean. A comparable bottle of Eiswein would probably fetch 80 dollars. In closing, the owners are very focused on improving their product and overall experience, as evidenced by their planting of Gruner Veltliner. Cannot recommend this winery enough.
