Spring is officially here, and Delawareans are eager to get outdoor and enjoy the fresh air. Gather a small group of friends—socially distanced—and enjoy a delicious glass or two of a beach-based vino that will certainly hit the spot. From wineries right on the coast to some that are bit farther out (but certainly worth the drive), here are a few First State favorites.

Harvest Ridge Winery

You can’t go wrong at Harvest Ridge Winery. Stop at the Marydel winery on your way down to the beach, which is located on the historic Mason-Dixon Line, where one of the original markers—number 47—still exists. (Hence the prominent number 47 on the winery’s labels.) The Blue Hen Blue, grape and blueberry wine, is always a winner, but don’t miss out on the white sangria, blended with natural flavors like strawberry, watermelon and raspberry. This delicious wine is available in bottles and cans for all on-the-go needs.

Nassau Valley Vineyards

Nassau Valley Vineyards in Lewes was the first winery in the First State. Located a few miles from the Lewes Beach, this winery is on a quiet country road. The Cape Rosé is a traditional, French-styled rosé with strawberry and watermelon aromas. It is light and fruity with a crisp, dry finish that is a perfect match with seafood.

Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery

Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery opened its doors in November of 2016 complete with a rustic tasting room, covered patio with service bar, a production room and outdoor areas. Located near Selbyville, the winery carries a variety of vinos, from red to white and blush. Sip the refreshing Fredonia, a sweet rosé that offers intense grape flavors and aromas. Salted Vines offers to-go bottles and drinks for curbside pick-up as well as in the tasting room. Enjoy a delicious rosé or even a wine slushy inside the tasting room.

Sposato Family Vineyards 

In 2012, the Sposato family—owners of Sposato Landscape Co., in Milton—purchased land in the heart of Argentina’s Wine Country and transformed it into the Sposato Family Vineyard. The vineyard serves various restaurants, stores and more across the First State. The Sabia Savia blend is the vineyard’s icon with a deep red color that emphasizes its silky elegance with a complex array of aromas.
