Galen Glen Winery To Receive Congratulatory Proclamation from the Pennsylvania Senate and House of Representatives
Andreas, PA. On Thursday, August 20th at Noon, Galen and Sarah Troxell, wine grower and winemaker, will receive a congratulatory proclamation from Pennsylvania State Senator, David G. Argall and Pennsylvania State Representative Jerry Knowles in the Winery’s tasting room. The State House and Senate are recognizing Galen Glen Winery’s 20th anniversary and the fact that they have continually produced high-quality, hand-crafted wines, maintaining a tradition of excellence. They are also being recognized for the Winery’s
responsiveness to the ever-changing interests of the community and contributing in a meaningful way toward a better, more-productive society.
The Troxells are known for farming wine. About ninety percent of all grapes used in Galen Glen’s wines are farmed on their family’s historic farm. This is rare in Pennsylvania. They have been pioneers in the field for planting of Austrian varietals like Zweigelt and they began growing Grüner Veltliner in 2003 obtaining many international awards. In May, they won Double Gold, Chairman’s Award and Best in Class at the Riverside International Competition in California. Two of the winery’s Gruner Veltliner wines will represent the US this fall in the invitational Six Nations Wine Competition in Australia. When asked about the many recent awards, Sarah Troxell remains humble, crediting her entire team. She is no stranger to awards and honors, having been named “Best Woman Winemaker” in 2014’s International Women’s Wine Competition in California.
Galen Glen Winery is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Andreas Pennsylvania. The vineyard is on the family’s double-century farm and full of history. The tasting room’s knowledgeable and engaging staff always make your visit enjoyable. Currently, the tasting room is open Wednesday through Friday from noon to 5pm; Saturday, 10am to 5pm; and Sunday, noon to 5pm. Plan to spend some time enjoying the exceptional views and a glass of award-winning wine with locally-made cheeses or pack some light fare.
