Sunset Wine Cruises Warm the Soul

Shoulder season cruises back for 9th season

What’s a unique way to enjoy wine, savor a sunset, and enjoy the best of the Delaware Bay? One answer is the Cape May-Lewes Ferry’s wine cruises, back for the ninth year by popular demand.  This year, the cruises have a new flavor with special gourmet small plate tastings by the chefs of each On the Rocks restaurant.

The Lewes cruises depart the terminal on four consecutive Fridays at 4:15 p.m. while the Cape May cruises leave the terminal on four successive Saturdays at 6:00 p.m. The package includes return-trip foot passenger ferry cruise, wine samplings and pairings, and the opportunity to purchase featured wines by the glass aboard the Ferry. Live music  also adds to the special atmosphere.

According to Heath Gehrke, Director of Operations for the Cape May – Lewes Ferry, the Wine Lovers Sunset Cruise is that unique remedy for residents and visitors looking to take a break from the ordinary.  “As fall sets in, what could be better than to sip a fine wine, savor some delicious Hors d’oeuvres, listen to great music and enjoy a dramatic sunset?” Gehrke said. “Think of the response when you say to your partner, ‘Honey, I’m taking you on a cruise!’ What a memorable way to experience the Ferry and the wonders of the Delaware Bay as a foot passenger.”
