Nassau Valley Vineyards, Delaware

Start here
Nassau Valley Vineyards is the first winery in Delaware, and remains the largest in the state. The vineyard was largely the effort of jazz singer Peggy Raley, who had to get the local state legislature to allow wineries in the state.

Peggy Raley opened the Nassau Valley Vineyard in 1993. Until the Pizzadili Winery opened in 2007, it was the only winery in Delaware. The vineyard is located on the northeastern tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, about 3 miles from Cape Henlopen. The climate there is suitable for growing the Bordeaux grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet franc.

Today the Nassau Valley Vineyard produces some 5,000 cases of wine a year. In addition to grapes grown in Delaware, it also buys grapes from vineyards in Maryland and Virginia.
