“Situated on 100 acres of scenic Delaplane farmland, Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery is a family owned and operated business that has been open to the public since April 2015. Specializing in Vitis Vinifera blends and standalone varietals, we offer a wide range of wine styles and aim to bring enjoyment to every glass.

With 17 acres under vine and three generations of winemaking in the family, as well as the experience and expertise of our winemaking staff, Blue Valley is well-suited to deliver excellent wines within a wide range of price point. Blue Valley has amassed over 100 total awards in local and international competitions, including Double Gold and Gold from the American Wine Society Competition, Double Gold and Gold from the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, two Gold medals from the San Francisco International Wine Competition, Gold from the New York Wine & Spirits Competition, and Gold from the INDY International Wine Competition.

The estate vineyard’s first year of production was 2015, with some incredible results!”

In addition to their Estate wines, they also produce a line of American Appellation wines that showcase their winemaking skills.

Today’s Wines:

  • Memories White Blend 2014: A white blend of 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 34% Viognier that was aged for 8 months in Stainless Steel. It is sweet, crisp, and well-rounded with a nice creamy profile reminiscent of the Winter D’Anjou pear.
  • Celebration Red Blend 2014: A take on a Bordeaux-style blend with just a touch of Syrah (the blend is 49% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 16% Petit Verdot, & 3% Syrah) that is aged in a combo of American and French oak for 18 months. A big, bold red that would be perfect to showcase grilled or roasted meats!
  • Estate Chambourcin Rosé 2017: A bright ruby red rosé with great intensity! If you are looking for an off-dry rosé to pair with a hot summer day, then try this guy!
