DelMonaco Winery and VineyardsDavid and Barbara DelMonaco enjoyed wine so much they began making wine at home. The next step was the planting of two acres of grapes for their personal use. After finding a large piece of property, it was not long before more vineyards were planted and the stunning tasting room, winery and event room built. The facility opened November 16, 2008. Today the winery has 20 acres of vineyards. Varieties include Steuben, Cynthiana, Marchel Foch, Chardonel, Concord, Traminette and Noriet.

In the winery, with gleaming stainless steel tanks, one white wall is covered with flags. The flag collection began with a United States flag given to Barbara and David. After visitors saw the flag they began bringing in additional flags. The display of flags includes states, world countries and special interests flags such as the POW MIA flag. An interesting note is that the countries and states represented with flags all have wineries.
