Delaplane Cellars is perched on romantic Lost Mountain, and views from the tasting room cast a spell of quiet. The romance won't be interrupted by big, loud crowds or scampering kiddies at this adults-only refuge; no large groups (more than six), buses or limos accepted.
The vibe is cool and calm as you pass through the 8-foot high, solid walnut doors into the tasting room. Neutral decor sets up the centerpiece: a wall of sky-high windows and deck beyond bring in the rolling mountain and vineyard views.
Wines are outstanding, with layers of flavor and the promise of even better things to come after cellaring. Wines include Chardonnay, Petit Manseng, Vidal Blanc, Tannat, Rose, and a variety of Bordeaux-style blends.
Delaplane is also serious about its "green" initiatives, with works hard to protect the environment.
Hang-out spots include window tables in the tasting room and sunny side and front decks. A big indoor fireplace is in the plans.
If you would like a more extensive experience including special wines and a charcuterie platter in a private seated setting, book a Reserved Tasting on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 11:30, 1:00 and 2:30 for 2-6 guests ($40.00/guest).
Important note - Delaplane is very serious about providing a tranquil, adult-oriented wine tasting experience. To that end, no groups of more than 6 are permitted, no buses or limousines at anytime, no one under 21 on the property (including infants and children), no smoking anywhere, picnics and dogs are permitted only on the knoll outside the tasting room - not in the tasting room or on the decks.
