The Remote Winery In Delaware That’s Picture Perfect For A Day Trip
Delaware’s sandy soil makes it an ideal place for grapes to grow, and more than one Delaware winery has figured that out! Harvest Ridge takes the cake for most innovative Delaware vineyard, as demonstrated by their
Girl Scout Cookie pairings. Nassau Valley is in the perfect location – right by the beach! Pizzadili Vineyard and Winery might be the most overlooked, but it certainly deserves your attention. Their incredible wines and remote location make them an excellent choice for a day trip in Delaware.
Pizzadili Vineyard and Winery is Felton's best kept secret.
You can find the remote farm at
1683 Peach Basket Road
Felton, DE 19943. The Vineyard is a sprawling plot of land with so much more than just vines! You'll find ponds, barns, and even some barnyard creatures here.
The scene here is rustic and country, like any true Slower Lower farm.
Stop in to the main building when you arrive to pay for your tasting and get the run-down on the Vineyard's history.
Stroll the grounds on your visit and see what grapes are growing.
Each grape variety makes a different type of wine. You might see various "clones" and blends here, which the Pizzadili staff can explain to you in detail.
This farm is one of the most beautiful in the state.
In the springtime, flowers are in bloom, and the whole place smells amazing. It's a great spot for photographers, too, so don't forget to bring your camera!
In addition to your tasting, you can book a food package, too!
Bring your friends together and split a cheese platter to go with the incredible wines you'll be tasting here. You'll have to call in advance, so they can get the platter ready for you. Their phone number is
Oh, and with each tasting, you'll get a complimentary wine glass!
