Alba Vineyard was actually a full days trip for us, as we chose to ride north along the Delaware River, enjoying the ride. When you arrive at the winery, the tasting room is in a converted dairy barn, it feels rustic and presents the perfect atmosphere for a wine tasting. Alba charges $5 a person for a tasting of six different wines. You get to keep the glasses, which is cool cause they got the vineyards named etched on it.
Gordie has never been a wine person, but he actually really liked some of the wines. I went through two tastings (12 different wines) before I had to try and make a decision about what wines to buy. (see my shopping tips for wine info) We loaded three cases of wine into the back of Nigel.
