Salted Vines Vineyard and Winery is a dream of the Mobilia’s in the making.

Adrian is a fourth generation grape grower from North East, Pennsylvania. He spent his formative years nurturing grapes and orchards just off the coast of Lake Erie. Jessica, no stranger to farm life, grew-up on a wheat farm in Western Kansas. Both found themselves in Southern Delaware, and it was fate when a mutual friend introduced the two.

Shortly after the couple wed July 15, 2015, they purchased a 26-acre farm in Frankford, DE and the transition from Fenwick Wine Cellars to Salted Vines Vineyard and Winery began.

On December 31st of 2015, sooner than originally anticipated, they closed the doors to Fenwick Wine Cellars and started the process of building a larger facility on their newly purchased land. While construction on the building was taking place, they were busy planting the first 1600 vines, consisting of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with the intentions of adding to the vineyard every spring, until complete.

In November of 2016, Salted Vines opened its doors, and they have not looked back since. The new building includes a rustic tasting room, large covered patio, production room, catering kitchen, and outdoor areas.

Adrian and Jessica invite you to stop by and enjoy their wines in a place that is close to their hearts. They look forward to sharing Salted Vines Vineyard and Winery with you.


A few words from the founders:
"We are grateful for and humbled by, the support of our staff and friends, some of which have put in hours of time, to help us see our vision through. By our family, who has been a constant pillar of strength and reason in the moments we questioned our decision and for our loyal customers that continue to believe in us."

We hope to see you soon!
Adrian and Jessica Mobilia
