Salted Vines' new 'Lower Slower Delaware' wine will debut with the Jan. 13 'Sippin with the Sloths' event at the winery, offering people the chance to taste the new wine and hang out with the notoriously slow-moving creatures.

Salted Vines is once again hosting its “Sippin’ with Sloths” events. Paired with Barn Hill Preserve, Salted Vines is providing a unique experience for adults 21 or older to have some wine and snacks, and chill out with sloths in a safe environment. Reservations for one of the upcoming event dates, Wednesday, Jan. 13, 6-8 p.m., or Wednesday, Jan. 27, 6-8 p.m., must be made in advance on Barn Hill Preserves’ website at

In conjunction with this event, Salted Vines has crafted a special wine made from the grape varietal Delaware. The new wine has been given the name “Lower Slower Delaware,” representing the nickname of Sussex County, in unison with the popular sloth event featuring the notoriously slow-moving creature. The vineyard plans to release the new wine at the next event, on Jan. 13, and then to the general public on Thursday, Jan. 14, noon to 6 p.m.

“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,” said Salted Vines’ Manager Katie Duke. “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.”


The slow-moving sloth and Sussex County's 'Lower Slower' nickname are combining for the theme of Salted Vines' newest wine.

Along with the release of the wine, there will be a donation made to Barn Hill Preserve for each bottle sold, to assist in their efforts in providing education about the conservation of wildlife. More can be learned about Barn Hill Preserve by visiting their website.
