The history of Delaware wine really only dates back to the 1990s, when Peggy Raley, a jazz singer, decided she wanted to open a winery in the state. She was able to convince the state legislature to change the law disallowing wineries and in 1991 the legislation was drafted. By 1993, Delaware’s first winery was open. Although the wine industry in this state is relatively new, it’s doing well. Delaware specializes in chardonnay and red Bordeaux, as well as some fruit wines. Because of its high quality, as well as the state’s newfound dedication to the wine industry, Delaware is abundant in exceptional wines, sure to please any wine lover.
