And Now, For Something Completely Different

If you have come to my blog, you see it.  It’s different.  Not just my blog but our entire website has been updated.  I’d encourage you to take the tour.

Under “About”:  you have the opportunity to meet our team (that’s right, photos and names including moi); learn our history (do you now understand “crooked stick?”), contact us, see how we handle and process any donation requests and the legal stuff (like how we handle orders, your information, etc.).

Under “News”: My favorite (yes, my blog); our awards and Now Serving, the section that shows many of the great places, listed by locale, where you can get Galen Glen wines while you dine.

In “Pairings”: Probably my second favorite because it features food, you will find a featured recipe and then past recipes from past pairings (now the title of the tab is clear).

Under “Wines”: you will find the listing and have the ability to order online (if you are in PA) our wines by white, red and dessert.  There’s also information on joining our case club (which I strongly suggest if you are a thrifty shopper), and custom labeling (We can custom label all year, but right now, it’s hopping with businesses advertising and saying thank you to their customers).  Back to shipping for a moment, if you are outside of PA and would like to order our wines, please call the tasting room at 570.386.3682 during normal business hours, we can ship almost anywhere in the Continental US with a few exceptions.

Under “Visit” : This is an important tab if you want to find us or arrive when we are open.  You’ll find our hours, directions, other area attractions and frequently asked questions.  Check it out to plan your best visit.

Finally, on the right there is “Happenings”: a month-by-month listing of events at the winery and upcoming events.  We are in the planning stages to announce the 2015 events, so stop back regularly, but please check out the Chili Cook-Off planned for January.  It’s a great way to warm up on what’s promised to be a cold day.

Across the top of our new website are some icons.  I’m sure you’ll recognize Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  The little house takes you back to our home page, the little envelope lets you sign up to receive our newsletters, and the cute shopping basket with wine, is your shopping cart if you are ordering online.

Each page has new and exciting photographs too.

It is all pretty simple and easy to use from your home computer or by phone on the road. Speaking of on the road, I do hope you will be on the road to Galen Glen this weekend.  We have a great pairing planned (I say great because the humans are excited, I unfortunately cannot taste it).  We are pairing Mom’s favorite double-dark chocolate truffle with wine made from Dad’s favorite fruit, Raspberry.  It’s a complimentary pairing on the wine bar this Saturday and Sunday and by the “oohs” and “aahs” I heard during the testing, it will be yummy.

So there you have it, a canine perspective on navigating our new website.  I sincerely hope you will take a look, it would make my tail wag for sure.

Until next time…

Wine wags,

Clemens
