Armed with memories of his father's and grandfather's winepress, Dominick Chirichillo founded his wine school as a hobby in a basement cellar. Since he began crafting his own wines, he has won 47 medals from national American Wine Society competitions and established a proper winemaking school. During a series of classes, instructors guide students through all the stages of winemaking, from crushing grapes to prepping barrels, removing sediment, and softly singing to expedite fermentation. Students handle the same seasonal grapes—harvested from regions of California and Chile—that Chirichillo blends into more than 40 different varietals for sale by the bottle and case.
Not much has changed at Fink Flowers & Gifts in the last half a century. The fragrant boutique still has the same address it did when it opened in 1956. It’s still manned by the same family that's been filling vases, wrangling stuffed animals, and arranging scrumptious gift baskets for three generations. It’s this consistency that has kept guests coming back for all their floral needs, as well as greeting cards, candles, and original paintings by Artists of Bristol on the Delaware. First-timers to the shop step into what feels like a scene out of a fairy tale. Dotted with vivid butterflies, winding vines crisscross the boutique's ceiling, suspended above shelves crowded with vibrant bouquets and eclectic seasonal displays. The staff invites visitors to recycle by bringing empty vases, wicker baskets, or farm-raised piñatas to the shop; the empty vessels can be exchanged for a free loose bunch of flowers.
Timothy's Center for Gardening started in 1965 as a small vegetable farm stand that grew its own produce. Over the years, it evolved into a one-stop gardening center for plants, landscape supplies, pots, and lighting. Grab a bag of cedar mulch to inhibit weed growth or protect your young trees in the winter and a selection of colorful flowers to plant in the spring.
Like leaves on a tree, Dragonfly Farms changes color with the seasons. Owners Patrick and Judy Lapide transform their show rooms to highlight new plants and flowers, home furnishings, and gardening supplies, applying vivid coats of paint and themed backdrops to complement their wares. In addition to greenery and home decor, they offer winemaking supplies and equipment—rendering fermented sips more easily than stomping on beaded fruit.
