  • Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery  :

    Enjoy the breezy coastal vibes of the nearby bay as you settle back for a taste of Salted Vines’ limited-run seasonal cider, “Apple Jacked” Or, try their crisp Pinot Grigio, a dry white that has just the right autumn notes of fresh-picked apples. On chilly days you can warm up with a glass of wine by the stone fireplace and on weekend evenings, live acoustic music sets the scene, and a food truck satisfies everyone’s cravings.

  • Harvest Ridge Winery and Rebel Seed Cidery :

    Soothing farm fields and winding roads lead to this laid-back country winery, filled with pretty views and a family-run charm. Check out the “Punkin Jack,” a pumpkin-meets-apple wine blend, or go for a pure Delaware experience with a rich, fruity glass of the Blue Hen Blue, a blend of concord grape and blueberry. Try a Wine Flight (4 glasses for $10) and order a plate of goodies from the Fields of Dreams food truck, now open every weekend. On most weekend nights, live music, trivia battles and even yoga sessions supplement the sipping, and glasses of cider and sangria bolster the popular wine selections.

  • Nassau Valley Vineyards  :

    Take a quick jaunt from the Delaware beaches and check out this tucked-away winery that is Delaware’s first and biggest. Winner of more than 200 awards, Nassau Valley offers an engaging art gallery, and features a unique self-guided museum that explores the 8,000-year history of wine. The tasting room doubles as a wine shop, offering bottles of Nassau’s award-winning wine and other treasures, from cork screws to fruit jam to t-shirts.
