WINE COUNTRY VACATION
We have first-hand travel tips and recommendations to help make your New Jersey wine country vacation a GRAPE escape.
Location: The major wine growing regions that have emerged in New Jersey include Warren County/Hunterdon County in the north, Hammonton in the south, and Cape May at the southernmost tip of the state, although there are quality wineries outside of the each of those regions.
When to Visit: The best time to visit New Jersey wineries is in the late spring/early summer when the vines are filling out and the weather hasn’t gotten too hot or humid. Many wineries host outdoor events with live music and food trucks. It’s also the beginning of the festival season when wineries such as Sharrott Winery and Old York Cellars host their annual big wine fests.
