Salted Vines Vineyard & Winery will again host its Sippin’ with Sloths events from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 13 and 27. Paired with Barn Hill Preserve, Salted Vines provides a unique experience for adults 21 and older to enjoy some wine and snacks while chilling out with sloths in a safe environment. Reservations for one of the upcoming event dates must be made in advance on the Barn Hill Preserve website, barnhillpreserve.com/delaware.
Salted Vines has crafted a special wine for this event made from the grape varietal named for Delaware. This new wine has been given the name Lower Slower Delaware, representing the local nickname for Sussex County with a nod to the beloved, slow-moving sloths. The wine release will take place at the Jan. 13 event for registered attendees, and the public release will be from 12 to 6 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 14.
“It has been a pleasure working alongside another small business in Sussex County that offers our guests, as well the community, an educational and special experience that is much needed during these difficult times. The addition of the quirky, light-hearted new wine, Lower Slower Delaware, has been a fun project to work on and we are excited for its official release,” said Salted Vines Manager Katie Duke. There will be a donation made to Barn Hill Preserve for each bottle sold, to assist in its efforts to provide education about wildlife conservation.
