At Aspen Dale, a 200-year-old barn serves as the center of the wine-making operation. The tasting room manages to be elegant, cozy, funky and comfortable all at the same time, with a big fireplace anchoring all the bits and pieces.
Upstairs in the converted hayloft there is additional seating which offers a few romantic alcoves featuring over-stuffed couches and club chairs. In warmer months, a pond with water trickling through fountains is the centerpiece of the backyard patio.
The views in every direction are relaxing and pastoral, with stone outbuildings, an old silo, and gazebos for small groups.
Wine tastings come with a food pairing. Tiny tidbits include pheasant sausage, Sage Darby cheese, white chocolate and other morsels chosen for their ability to highlight the nuances of the wine selections.
Recently, wines included Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Vidal Blanc and Seyval/Chardonnay.
