-Visit Nassau Valley Vineyards 32165 Winery Way, Lewes. The vineyard does allow dogs on the property but not in any of the buildings. Well behaved dogs are welcome on leash. It is peak wedding season so it is best to plan to visit earlier in the day. The later part of the afternoon tends to be high traffic with the caterers and other wedding vendors arriving.  There are picnic tables outside, so feel free to bring lunch and hang out with the pups. Please be sure to keep them out of the flower beds and the ceremony site in Bacchus Grove.
