Raspberry wine back on shelves at Galen Glen

Galen Glen Vineyard & Winery in Andreas, Pa., a member of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail, is touting its raspberry wine that was released in the past couple of days and that it's planning a winemaker's dinner for Saturday, Nov. 7. A menu is in the works and reservations are being accepted at 570.386.3682.

The winery is open for business Fridays through Sundays and also on Memorial Day, Labor Day and Columbus Day. Stop there and you can sample a wide mix of wines, from white to rose to red to dessert and sparkling.

One intriguing aspect is who carries the wine outside the winery. Four local restaurants in the vicinity of Jim Thorpe and Tamaqua carry Galen Glen's wines, but so do three in the Lancaster area, including the
Belvedere Inn and John J Jeffries in Lancaster and the General Sutter Inn in Lititz. A fourth, called Gibralter, is also expected to carry wines from a winery that's a couple of hours away.
