Spend an Afternoon at Galen Glen Winery

Galen Glen WinerySince life is about to slow down and relax soon with the coming of summer now is the perfect time to start planning your summer trip. It’s always a great idea to take some time off every year to help you recharge your batteries and make you a happier, healthier, and overall more productive person. You don’t have to travel too far away to have a great trip however a quick jaunt to the Pocono Mountains is always a great idea, especially in the summer. We at Ledges Hotel love the coming of the warmer months around here. We can open the doors and have an amazing cross breeze that is just to die for. We also get to start listing out fun activities for our guests that are best in the warmer months. One in particular we love to suggest is taking a quick trip to nearby Galen Glen Winery. Let’s look into Galen Glen Winery and see why not only their wines that keep visitors coming back for more.

Galen Glen Winery was established in 1995 by Galen and Sarah Troxell. After leaving their old lives behind them, they decided to purchase Galen’s family farm, that has been in operation for 200 years, and start their life’s work of growing and harvesting grapes to produce delicious wine. It’s easy to see why they have been so successful all of these years, not only do they have fantastic wines, which have earned them numerous awards, but also their staff. They have family as well as staff helping them create their wines and you can see that they all work together as a family and are truly proud of the product that they produce. When you have a  group of people that are so committed to a goal, it pours over into the visitor’s experience.
