Galen Glen Winery mentioned in Internationally-known Author’s book, Best White Wine on Earth
Winemaker Sarah Troxell was “honored” to be mentioned in noted wine-expert Stuart Pigott’s latest book, Best White Wine on Earth-The Riesling Story.
Pigott wrote, “To my total amazement, I found a really exciting dry Riesling from PENNSYLVANIA, the Stone Cellar from Galen Glen of Andreas in the Lehigh Valley, between Philadelphia and the Appalachian Mountains. Galen and Sarah Troxell focus on Germanic grapes, including Grüner Veltliner, Gewürztraminer, and the red Zweigelt. The Stone Cellar Riesling has really pretty peach and honeysuckle aromas, but is properly dry and very clean with a great mineral freshness.”
On July 26, 27 & 28, Pigott will be presenting at the City of Riesling event in Traverse City, Michigan. This event will feature Rieslings and winemakers from all over Michigan and the world. The Galen Glen Stone Cellar Riesling will be presented for tasting during the United States of Riesling seminar.
