Accommodating 20 – 400 or more, Nassau Valley is a truly unique venue nestled amongst the verdant fields of Sussex County. Its convenient location makes a perfect spot to hold your next event, wedding, birthday, corporate function, family reunion, charity event, anniversary, bridal/baby shower or bar/bat mitzvah.

Nassau Valley Vineyards is the first and only award winning winery in the state of Delaware.

Founded in 1987, our vineyards were the first commercial wine vineyards to exist in the “First” state. Peg Raley and her father, Bob Raley founded the vineyards on a family farm site just outside of historic Lewes, Delaware.

Our vineyards are comprised of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. We use other regionally grown fruit to produce the 14 wines in our product line. We purchase grapes and fruit from growers on the eastern shore and supplement with other regionally grown fruit. Read less

Nassau truly helped make our wedding everything we wanted it to be. The staff was so wonderful and patient with our needs, especially since we were planning from over an hour away. They also gave us great recommendations for other vendors as well.

Thank you Nassau for making our day beautiful!

Peggy and her staff were wonderful to work with! Not one question unanswered. The Grove was the perfect setting for the ceremony and Claret Hall was a hit for 105 guests.
Since we are out of state brides, Peggy suggested all of our vendors to us ... all were awesome!

Peggy and her staff at the Nassau Valley Vineyard gave us a truly incredible setting for our wedding. We loved every minute of it and so did our guests. They loved the Vineyard and all of its charm. We couldn't be more grateful and we are soooo happy we chose to have our reception there. We HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a reception site, or ceremony site off the beaten path. :) LOVED IT!

If you want a gorgeous vineyard wedding, this is the place. There are two main venue spaces that are great for a big or small wedding and you can have the ceremony outside or inside. Do be aware that they only provide the building. All tables, chairs, utensils, napkins, etc. had to be rented by an outside vendor. I find the space to be expensive for only providing the room since the couple has to pay for so much more ontop of that. There is a new event coordinator there named Angie who is very helpful with questions but sometimes the customer service can be neglectful and it can be hard to reach someone to answer those questions. The wine is fantastic and I was very glad to introduce most of our guests to such an eclectic variety of wines. Overall, I'm very glad we used this location but there were just some concerns throughout the planning process.

We had a difficult time finding our perfect venue at the Delaware shore - our reception at Nassau Valley Vineyard was exactly what we had hoped for. Peggy was extremely helpful and great to work with. Claret Hall served as our reception space and the Gallery held our cocktail hour. It was perfect. The vineyard is a beautiful backdrop and a rather blank slate to work with. The list of suggested vendors was useful and helped lead us to a few great ones. I'd highly recommend stopping by the vineyard for a wine tasting and taking a look around if you're searching for a venue. For us, it was perfect.

The service at Nassau Valley was wonderful. We found the vineyard online and then took a trip out to the area, Peggy was great to work with and the wine was delicious!

At the beginning of planning I found the responsiveness to be a bit lacking, but once we got closer to the date it improved dramatically.

Peggy and her staff run a wonderful winery and the work atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming - not pretentious like some winery could be. They have a small office/tasting area, great grounds, a museum and multiple areas to have the ceremony and/or reception. We rented Claret Hall for our brunch reception and seated about ~130 people comfortably with a dance floor, buffet line, gift table, tasting tables and two bars. We rented the chinese lanterns to be turned on and enjoyed the lighting.

We were planning a wedding on a budget and found Nassau Valley to fit right into it.

The reception hall is wonderfully simple, white walls and a neutral color floor so you can do with it whatever you dream. It is a wonderful place to decorate and seeing some of the photos of past receptions, it can be designed in so many difference styles. The staff supported us in all our ideas and worked closely with our caterer and rental guys. The winery does have a suggested vendor list and we found that really helpful for us since we weren't locals.

I totally recommend Nassau Valley for you wedding - or a great glass of wine if you're in Lewes :)
