Let The Dempsey Manor crown your day at the Beach with 1 of our 2 Gourmet Picnics for Two . . .

In these busy times, it's hard to find time for each other but we really need to make the effort. 


Picnics are a great way to get outdoors, share some good food and wine and relax! Not to mention spending quality time with a loved one. A Romantic Picnic is a perfect way to do this.


Make your Gourmet Picnic at the Beach selection

when you make Reservations for your Stay...or a minimum of 7 days before your arrival.

Pick a Wine Tasting Picnic Basket for a bit of fun.


Enjoy our collection of several small bottles of complimentary red and white wine, and mellow-out with a generous portion of finger sandwiches - a turkey salad blend of great flavors (celery, onion, tarragon, dill, currants and balsamic-vinegar mayo!).


With some nice stemmed glasses and a cheese platter (including some sundried tomatoes, smoked oysters, olives and crisps), you will cleanse your palate elegantly after each new wine selection.


To finish with a flourish, have some fresh-cut fruit medley to experience the dipping chocolate and thick cream. Yum!


This Picnic Basket will provide you with enough wine and melatonin for a great beach nap after dining!


Remember this is a wine tasting picnic so you don't have to finish the wine. Take the rest home for later.


Wine Tasting Picnic Basket for Two                      $80.00 

Choose our Romantic Feast on the Beach . . . and take all the time you want. The idea of a Romantic Picnic is to spend time together not fussing around with bowls and serving spoons! So we've prepared for you a filling but easy gourmet meal.
