4 Coastal Delaware Wineries for Sipping Vino This Spring

These four southern Delaware wineries are the perfect spots for locals to enjoy the warm weather while sipping refreshing vino this spring.

Spring is here, and Delawareans are eager to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air. Gather a small group of friends and savor 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. This winery is on a quiet country road a few miles from the Lewes Beach. 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 like shellfish. If you like a sweet dessert wine, the True Blueberry is a sweet red made from 100% blueberries.

Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery 

Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery opened its doors in 2016 complete with a rustic tasting room, covered patio with service bar, 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 semi-sweet red that offers intense grape flavors and aromas. The Lower Slower Delaware wine is an ideal sweet blush for summer sipping made from the Delaware grape—this spring, the winery hosted its first annual event of the same name. The Lower Slower Delaware Festival brought live entertainment, local artisan vendors, food trucks and more to the winery. Enjoy tastings, flights, pure grape juices, wine slushies, local beer and more on-site this summer.

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.
