Whether you find yourself exploring the acres of green farmland at Pizzadili Winery, or saddling up to the bar at Iron Hill Brewery with a pint of Pig Iron Porter, you simply can’t go wrong with any of Delaware’s craft wine and beer producers.
The Delaware Wine and Ale Trail debuted in 2010. A collaborative effort between state tourism officials and Delaware’s 13 unique beer- and wine-makers, the Trail invites tourists and drink-lovers to traverse the state—from Greenville to Fenwick Island—and visit each spot.
The highlights along the way are many, including giant oak brewing vessels at Dogfish Head’s brewery in Milton, and the bubbling freshwater spring at Twin Lakes Brewery in Greenville. They’ll sip Chardonnay at Nassau, ambrosia in Fenwick and Abbey Trippel at Stewart’s Brewing Company in Bear.
There are more great sights and sips waiting to be discovered. Head to visitdelaware.com/wineandale to get started.
