in the New Jersey Pine Barrens
The Pine Barrens
of NJ is home to several excellent award-winning wineries that produce
a wide variety of red and white wines. Valenzano,
and others, located in Atlantic, Camden, Burlington and Ocean
Counties, all offer winery tours and/or tastings. In fact, New Jersey
is fifth in the nation in production of wines!
wineries produce many of the classic wines, both red and white,
and dry or sweet, but it doesn't end there! Cranberry
wines, both red and white, are a favorite any time of the year,
but it is a local custom during the holidays - a few of the wineries
have it for tasting and sale. Bring home several bottles and start
your own tradition; it will be a huge hit at holiday dinners! These
wineries also take advantage of other south Jersey fruits - you'll
find raspberry wines, blueberry sparkling wine, peach sangria, and
even dandelion wine!
provides an excellent climate for vineyards. Global Warming is causing
warmer winters, but as a result, grapes are thriving here, enabling
oenologists to plant varieties that never before would have survived
in this area. It is said that the Pinelands region is much like
that of the well-known wine growing regions of France. Winemakers
in growing numbers are enhancing New Jersey's nickname, "The
Garden State", and raising its status as a home to a number
of excellent vineyards producing high quality wines that are garnishing
much attention and numerous awards.
Winery, located in the heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens,
is dedicated to producing the highest qualilty wines from
the vineyards of southern New Jersey; specializing in fine
red and white wines from grape varieties that are unique to
the Northeastern United States.

camping, fishing, swimming, and most of all, peace and tranquility. It's

fellow man is what matters. To that end, it is important for you to know
that as a visitor to our precious Pine Barrens, you should show respect
