Sometimes you and your special someone need to get away from life’s day to day cares and spend some quality time together. A getaway to Delaware is the perfect opportunity to get to know one another all over again and a winery is a great romantic venue.
Here are some tips of ways to connect at a Delaware winery.
Take a tour
Taking a tour is more than just admiring rustic barrels of aging wine, it’s an opportunity to learn about the wine making process. At Harvest Ridge, learn from the wine makers themselves about the details of the process from the importance of the native soil to the selection of the right barrels to craft the perfect taste. Although winery tours are typically done in groups, call ahead to schedule a private tour for the two of you.
Do a tasting
After your tour, enjoy the ambiance of the winery. This is a great option if you’d like to be guided through a flavor adventure with a wine expert. Or for a quieter, more relaxing experience, order a flight or a glass to enjoy together. Salted Vines is the perfect place to order a sampling and get cozy by the fire or relax on the porch.
Share some time alone
Take a break from your day planner by roaming freely through a vineyard. A leisurely walk through a vineyard is the perfect opportunity to explore together and enjoy one another’s company. Nassau Valley Vineyards’ grounds are open for self-guided tours during normal business hours. Walks through the vineyard are especially enjoyable during the spring and fall.
Try a pairing
Wine is known for bringing out the best flavors of various foods and many of Delaware’s wineries offer carefully selected pairings. At Salted Vines, try a gourmet chocolate or local cheese platter available for order with every tasting. If you visit in February, be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth at the Annual Chocolate Lovers’ Festival.
