Delaplane Cellars

One of the beautiful things about where we live is that there are a plethora of vineyards within an hour drive of our house. With so many great options, deciding what to do on a gorgeous, sunny Sunday when we had Monday off was pretty easy to figure out.

At the recommendation of one of our friends we decided to try Delaplane Cellars. This winery is absolutely lovely. The tasting room features a wall of windows with stunning views and I love the decor.

Since it was our first-time visiting we decided to do the full tasting for $9. I have to say this is what made me really love Delaplane. Every single wine was good. EVERY ONE. I was extremely impressed. I even liked their Chardonnay which was crisp, clean, not oaky and something that I actually wanted to drink.

My favorite wine of the day was the 2007 Springlot Reserve. This wine is well balanced with the right depth of flavor. You can taste the fruit, but it isn't overly sweet. The finish is nice, not dry or heavy on tannins. I'm pretty sure I finished half a bottle by myself.

It is important to note that Delaplane Cellars doesn't accept groups of six or more, but honestly that helps ensure the relaxed and not rowdy atmosphere. There also isn't really a space for a huge group so don't let it detour you. The staff is super friendly.

I am really looking forward to spending another afternoon at Delaplane this spring and bringing one of these beauties home with me.
