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!Sent on 08/28/2011
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 :)

Nassau Valley Vineyards is a beautiful place for a wedding. The bacchus grove was beautiful for our ceremony and we used claret hall for our reception. The hall is a complete blank slate which was perfect to be able to make the hall our own style. Peggy and Jessica were so amazing to work with and truly know the business well. E-mails and phone calls were always responded to in a quick manner. The wine is AMAZING - we did a tasting and picked out 5 different ones for our reception. We received so many compliments on the wine, and how beautiful of a wedding we had. Peggy or Jessica made sure we had all the vendors we needed for our day and if we didn't they always had a list of people they would recommend. One of them was with us for our rehearsal and the entire wedding day as well, and were there to help us clean up at the end. The venue is so beautiful and Peggy is great to work with. I highly recommend a vineyard wedding here!Sent on 10/22/2016
