Offering a wine tasting room as well as a guest house (should you need a weekend away), Crescent Moon provides a unique wine tasting experience. Enjoy spectacular views of the countryside and stroll through the vineyards while sampling the superb wines made to please all ranges of taste. The vineyard grows eight varieties of grapes to help create wines ranging from dry to sweet. Crescent Moon wants to introduce the world to wonderful new varieties of wine. They would also be happy to show you how the winery is run and how grapes turn into wine, and for those who want to get their hands dirty, guests can help with grape picking and crushing! Immerse yourself in the winemaking experience for an unforgettable memory.
An orchard consisting of peaches, apples, and pears as well as a vineyard, Davenport Orchards & Winery offers many wines of many different flavor profiles. You can tour the orchards and winery and volunteer to take part in the winemaking process. The orchard has been a family-owned prospect since the 1960s, and given the family’s German and Polish heritages, it’s no wonder they turned their fruit farm into a winery. Enjoy taking in the sights and the history of the vineyard in the tasting rooms or out among the orchards. The Davenport Orchards & Winery website lists the many wines they offer, including multiple fruit wines, dry and sweet red wines, and dry and sweet white wines. They also notate what the wine pairs with, which takes the guesswork out of wine-buying for those unfamiliar with the process.
The Bluejacket Crossing indoor heated tasting room is open all year! Enjoy award-winning wines by the fireside in this beautiful vineyard. Leashed, friendly dogs are welcome on-site, so feel free to bring your furry best friend with you. The winery has some resident dogs that may even come say hi. If you’d like to picnic in the vineyard, you can bring your own lunch or purchase food from the small selection of cheese, sausages, and crackers. Bring yard games or board games, and even consider a family day out as the vineyard welcomes children. For those needing more of a getaway, Bluejacket Crossing offers events like yoga at the vineyard, or you can even book overnight and multiple-night stays at the vineyard.
