At DTUT, the baristas and bartenders want you to linger, day or night. During the day hours, floor-to-ceiling windows allow sunlight to flood a smattering of tables, encouraging guests to take a seat and get lost in a book while sipping coffee or tea. Whereas after dark, the cafe's dim lighting from an eclectic drop-light chandelier and flickering candles coax folks to intimate tables for a whiskey or craft beer from the full bar. Diners can also relax on a cozy mix of thrifted couches, which add to the eclectic vibe established the walls covered with local art and quirky decor. It's this night-time setting that makes the cafe an ideal spot for a date, during which lovers can make eyes over fondue and wine, also known as Love Potion No. 9.

Cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, zinfandel, and merlot—these classic European varieties will never emerge from the vineyards of Four Sisters Winery. Since 1984, winemaker Matty Matarazzo has only used grapes that can survive the bitter winters on his 250-acre farm in Warren County. He has won more than 100 regional, national, and international awards for his lineup of more than 25 wine varieties, which includes a sweet red made with concord grapes and a crispy, fruity wine made with several types of late harvest apple.

Four Sisters' staffers grant guests a glimpse of Matty's winemaking process during behind-the-scenes tours, as well as allow them to sample selections during onsite wine tastings. Freshly made light eats from a seasonal bakery can be enjoyed on a outdoor deck, under a tent overlooking the vineyards, or at a picnic table on the grounds. Throughout the year, the winery hosts numerous events, including a Mother's Day buffet, a Father's Day pig roast, and grape-stomping parties spearheaded by disenfranchised raisins.

Villa Milagro Vineyard is more than a spot for the creation of fine wines. It's also a protective habitat for native species, a culinary school, and a bastion of organic and sustainable agricultural practices. On winery tours, guests stroll down lanes surrounded by vines that are grown without pesticides or herbicides. You can sign up for cooking or wine-tasting classes, or simply sit down with the vintners for dinner. Tastings let you sample the vineyard's output, and bottles are for sale once you find something you like.

Conceived by Las Vegas restaurateur Mark DiMartino, Tilted Kilt evokes Ireland by way of Vegas, with waitresses dressed in plaid mini kilts shouldering trays of chilled beer and pub fare. Like an enchilada stuffed with four-leaf clovers, the eatery’s Irish nachos interpret a south-of-the-border classic in a Celtic way, slathering potato chips in cheese sauce and seasoned ground beef; alternatively, pot roast and vegetables simmer traditionally in the Olde Dublin Irish stew’s Guinness-infused beef stock. Barkeeps pour a full bar’s worth of wine, cocktails, and beer, which surfaces in bottles, bombers, and multi-brew mixes such as the Blue Moon and Guinness combination. High-definition TVs glow with a ceaseless parade of professional and college baseball, basketball, and hockey, and live bands add to the entertainment smorgasbord on Friday and Saturday nights.

European wines might as well run through the veins of Sergio and Violetta Neri, who each come from families with histories that are deeply rooted in the terrain of Greek and Italian vineyards. That passion and history has translated into a decade of award-winning wines at the Neri family's Hopewell Valley Vineyards. Visitors are welcome to tour the picturesque acres of sunny fields, or hang out in the tasting room to listen to live jazz on the weekends and sip one of the vineyard's carefully crafted white, red, or rose wines.
