Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery
32512 Blackwater Road | Frankford, DE 19945 |http://fenwick.nwpa.net/
What was formerly Fenwick Wine Cellars has reopened in a new location, a 26-acre farm that will be converted into to vineyards, an expansive, rustic tasting room, a large covered patio, production room, catering kitchen, and multiple outdoor areas.
Nassau Valley Vineyards
32165 Winery Way | Lewes, Delaware 19958 |www.nassauvalley.com
The first winery in the “First State,” Nassau Winery produces a wide variety of wines from sweet to dry and white to red. They grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc and supplement production with high-quality regionally grown fruit.
Harvest Ridge Winery
Westville Road | Marydel, DE 19964 |www.harvestridgewinery.com/
Located in the countryside right on the border of Delaware and Maryland, Harvest Ridge takes advantage of its location, with the shallow warmer waters of the Chesapeake offering grapes a longer warmer growing season, and the Atlantic cooling the vineyards at night and keeping humidity low.
Pizzadili Vineyard and Winery
1683 Peach Basket Road | Felton, DE 19943 |http://www.pizzadiliwinery.com/
With a touch of their home country of Italy, two brothers created Pizzadili Vineyard and Winery. With acres of grapevines, fruit trees, and lush farmland, you’ll find a setting similar to many of the vineyards in Italy.
9031 Whaleyville Road | Whaleyville Md 21872 |http://www.costaventosa.com/
The first Winery/Farm Microbrew in the state of MD, Costa Ventosa has nine wines from dry white to sweet red, two house beers and three delicious seasonal beers.
