Welcome to Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery, the newest winery and event facility on the Eastern Shore, located in the Millville, Delaware area.
For six years, we operated as Fenwick Wine Cellars in West Fenwick, Delaware. Last year we decided to invest in a beautiful piece of farmland, which allowed us to expand and build a new, larger winery to better serve our customers and friends. The timing was right for the expansion. The change in location provided the perfect opportunity to change our name, but we want all our friends and fans of Fenwick Wine Cellars to know, you will still enjoy the same great wines (and many new ones) and see the same faces you grew to know, and love.
We’d like to thank each of you, who have reached out to us since we began this new venture. We are honored to receive the overwhelming support you have shown us.
You are going to love our new location!
For three years we searched for the perfect property for our planned expansion. We were lucky enough to find a 26-acre farm that is the ideal backdrop for the vineyard and event venue Jess and I have been envisioning for years. Our goal is to convert the entire 26 acres to vineyards, over the next 5 – 10 years. This process has already begun, as we put our first plantings of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in earlier this year.
Our new building includes an expansive, rustic tasting room, a large covered patio, production room, catering kitchen, and multiple outdoor areas, all of which will be available for the public to rent for special events. These spaces were designed to provide a unique atmosphere for a wide variety of celebrations including weddings, business retreats, birthday parties, holiday events or any type of occasion. If you are interested in learning more about using Salted Vines Winery & Vineyard for your upcoming event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait for you to see it!
In closing, I think Jess said it best when she posted on our company Facebook page back in July:
A year ago today Adrian and I said, “I do” and committed our-selves to a life long journey together. On that day I not only gained a husband, but I became a step-mommy to a beautiful, loving, and sweet little girl whom has taught me that is possible to love another woman’s child as your own.
Shortly after we made our commitment to one another, we committed to purchasing a 26-acre farm on Blackwater Road. Our intention was to plant grapes come spring and one day build a dwelling to house our tasting room and winery. In the months that followed we had many discussions regarding our long-term vision/goal for the winery, and we decided to take a leap of faith and speed up the initial plan. We closed the doors to Fenwick Wine Cellars at the end of December 2015, when our lease was up, and we started our adventure of becoming Salted Vines Vineyard and Winery (hopefully, a soon to be, larger and better version of Fenwick Wine Cellars).
As I reflect over our first year of marriage I am grateful for, and humbled by, the support of our staff and friends, some of which have put in hours of time, to help us see our vision through. By our family, who has been a constant pillar of strength and reason in the moments we have questioned our decision, and for our loyal customers that continue to believe in us, and are as eager as we are for us to reopen our doors. Thank you a million times over again. We look forward to all of you becoming part of our story.
Thank you to all of our followers, staff, family, and friends!
We hope to see you soon!
Adrian and Jess Mobilia
