Galen Glen Vineyard (written Mar 11, 2011)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
The scenic drive to Galen Glen set the tone for our visit to this beautiful winery reminiscent of the old world wineries I had recently visited while on business in Europe. We instantly felt like valued customers the minute we walked through the large wooden door and the friendly winery staff greeted us with a well organized tasting list of the locally grown and produced wines. We arrived around sunset so the breathtaking scenery visible through the large tasting room windows ended up forming the perfect backdrop for our tasting. I rediscovered the meaning of "terroir" while enjoying their impressively crafted Riesling and GrĂ¼ner Veltiner. I am not sure if it was my shock from the taste bud rejuvenation delivered by the well balanced acidity and lingering fruit tones of the Riesling or the subtle but knowledgeable urging of the tasting room assistant that drove me to adventure out of my normal tasting range, regardless the gamble paid off with the Erin's Auslese. We were all impressed with its vibrant aroma and flitting sweetness. I finished my tasting with a recently released red wine, Claret, that just seemed to perfectly blend ubiquitous drinkability with remarkable complexity that made it a first round draft pick for our collective case purchase. All in all it was very refreshing for me and my group of fellow professionals from the Lehigh Valley to find worldwide competitive wines we had previously thought were only accessible by driving to Philadelphia or New York City or jumping onto a plane to California right here in our backyard at Galen Glen. Before we left we made sure to add our names to their email list that informs us about upcoming events like food and wine pairing dinners and full winery tours. On the way home I couldn't help but find myself adding Galen Glen's location into the favorites section of my GPS. Excellent weekend!
