New Jersey is well known for its tomatoes, white corn, peaches, and cranberries, but there is more

With more than 50 wineries, New Jersey wines are fast becoming internationally recognized as a premium wines.

The Garden State wine industry has received countless awards locally, nationally and internationally, and is now a significant part of the New Jersey agricultural sector.

Ideal grape varietals for New Jersey wineries are largely dictated by the weather and terrain that characterizes NJ wine country.

New Jersey has three federally designated American Viticultural Areas.

  • Outer Coastal Plain in the southern half of the state, includes all of Cumberland, Cape May, Atlantic, and Ocean counties and portions of Salem, Gloucester, Camden, Burlington, and Monmouth counties. Characterized with sandy soil, extensive sunshine, relatively mild winters, and a relatively long growing season. Most of the NJ wineries are located in this area and produce some of the best red wines in NJ.
  •  Central Delaware Valley, straddles the Delaware River with Its southern boundary near Titusville, just north of Trenton, and its northern border is near Musconetcong Mountain. With a slightly colder climate than the Outer Coastal Plain, they produce more white wines than it's southern neighbor.
  •  Warren Hills area in Warren County. Being further north and in a higher elevation, it has a colder climate and shorter growing season. White wines do better here than the two other areas

While there are more than 40 varieties of wine growing in New Jersey, the top ten NJ wines produced are:
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Syrah, and Concord.

Note: Sometimes conditions require cancellations or changes of dates, times and location which are not reflected in the original schedule. Before planning a trip to visit one of the listed events, it is suggested that you call the event sponsor to confirm the event schedule or for additional information on the event.
