Heritage Vineyards is a family owned and operated estate vineyard and winery located in Mullica Hill, New Jersey. Mullica Hill is located in the heart of the Outer Coastal Plain American Viticultural Area (AVA), which covers over 2.25 million acres in Southeastern New Jersey. Recently named New Jersey’s “Winery of the Year” by the Garden State Wine Growers Association, Heritage has begun cementing it’s self as a benchmark producer in New Jersey’s largest wine growing region.
Heritage Vineyard’s flagship red blend, BDX, received 94 points from the Beverage Testing Institute, the highest score this publication has ever awarded to a red wine from New Jersey. Cultivation of grapes began when Heritage Vineyards was established in 1999 by Bill and Penni Heritage.
Seeing the potential of the emerging wine industry in Southern New Jersey, Bill Heritage, with the help of his wife Penni, started converting their 150 acre estate of peach & apple orchards into vineyards. The winemaking team lead by Sean Comninos, consults with John Levenberg who is responsible for producing 23 wines rated 90+ points by Robert Parker (The Wine Advocate), including two 100-point wines. Bill and Penni have established Heritage Vineyards to fulfill their commitment to six generations of farming the same property. Their goal is to produce premier wines that reflect their commitment to the land and will be a legacy to future generations.
There is a certain sense of unparalleled fulfillment and purpose that comes from seeing the fruits of one’s labors literally grown from the ground up. This is the driving force that would propel Adrian Mobilia back to his roots, and inspire he and his wife, Shannon, to open Fenwick Wine Cellars.
Mobilia is a fourth generation farmer, growing up on the shores of Lake Erie, an area of Pennsylvania rich in the traditions of agriculture. He was raised on his family’s 200-acre farm that consisted mainly of different varieties of grapes, apples, cherries, and peaches. Mobilia learned the family trade early, and enjoyed it so much, that he would continue on to study horticulture at Penn State. When Mobilia left the farm for college in the mid 90’s, the family business was well on its way to what would become the next successful venture. In 1980, they had already begun pressing their own grapes, and by 1989, the juice was going direct to wineries. The wheels were then set into motion for the Mobilia family to open their own winery.
Working alongside his father Nick, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Chambourcin, Pinot Grigio, and Merlot grapes, to the already existing varieties, Adrian Mobilia helped the family winery come to fruition. In 1999 the first bottle of the Mobilia family winery was produced, bottled as Arrowhead Wine Cellars. The winery added another facet to the already existing strong family legacy of farming.
At Fenwick Wine Cellars, the roots do indeed run deep. The Mobilia’s invite you in, to be a part of something that has been grown for generations, from the ground up.

Nassau Valley Vineyards is the first and only award winning winery in the state of Delaware.
Founded in 1987, our vineyards were the first commercial wine vineyards to exist in the “First” state. Peg Raley and her father, Bob Raley founded the vineyards on a family farm site just outside of historic Lewes, Delaware.
Peg got her start in the wine business working for Les Amis du Vin International and The Friends of Wine magazine. After several years of globe trotting for the publication she decided it was time to stop writing about other people’s wines and start making wines in Delaware. Delaware’s laws prohibited farm wineries, so Peg drafted legislation and lobbied the Delaware General Assembly to create Farm Winery legislation for the state. The law passed in 1991. The Raley’s opened Nassau Valley Vineyards in October of 1993.
Our vineyards are comprised of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. We use other regionally grown fruit to produce the 14 wines in our product line. We purchase grapes and fruit from growers on the eastern shore and supplement with other regionally grown fruit.
Hello and welcome to our site! We are two Northern Virginia-based wine and road trippin’ enthusiasts. The goal is to visit every winery in our beloved home state…all 140 (and counting) of them!
What is Wine Cruisers? Not a company that offers wine tasting on a ship…although that would be sweet, and I’m sure there’s a few out there! It’s a concept born from a couple’s passion for road trips, good wine, and beautiful scenery to go with said wine. We’re a big fan of epic backdrops…that’s Yosemite National Park behind us in the photo. And you better believe we had some wine with us! I’m Colleen, on the left, and Andrew is on the right. I work for the federal government (is there any other occupation around here?) and he is a web designer (hence this awesome site layout and stunning photography, if I do say so myself)!
Neither of us are what you would call “wine snobs.” Until fairly recently, anything beyond our local 7-eleven was considered out of our league. But we always enjoyed a nice glass of vino to slow down the pace of our hectic lives. It wasn’t until stumbling upon some local wineries on a few of our random road trips, eventually planning “itineraries” for our friends, that we realized we had a bona fide hobby on our hands. We loved the way that Virginia’s neighborhood vintners took advantage of the natural resources to redefine local agriculture, taking a stab at planting vines in an environment that’s not particularly conducive to growing them. But dang it, it Thomas Jefferson started it, they were gonna finish it!
I always knew that in my lifetime, it would be cool to visit all vineyards in Virginia. It’s feasible, but something that could turn into quite an expedition. After all, it takes a longer time for us to drive from our urban DC-area metropolis to Virginia Tech than it does to get to New York City. But the diversity of Virginia’s landscapes are just the cure for our need to “reset” and get out of town every once a while. And since every one of the state’s regions has different and exciting vinifera to offer, how can we afford to pass that up?
There’s no telling how long it will take to meet our goal, especially since the number of wineries here seems to be growing exponentially. As a matter of fact, we’re currently the 7th largest wine producing state in the Union (http://www.virginiawine.org/learn FTW)! But the everlasting natural beauty and our insatiable thirst for the new, interesting, and beautiful should make this a fun ride.
We are planning on adding our very own map, along with a recap of the places we’ve been to. While all of them have something special going on, some are worth more of a drive than others. We like good wine, which doesn’t always mean expensive and posh. The atmosphere and friendliness of the places we go are just as important.
Tomorrow we are planning on staying local, with stops in and around Leesburg, VA. Full debriefing to follow! Until then, feel free to poke around our work in progress. Sláinte! Colleen
owner photo clickSINCE ITS BEGINNING, SYLVIN FARMS WINERY HAS BEEN dedicated to New Jersey agriculture. In 1976, when conventional wisdom said “plant American or hybrid varieties,”Sylvin Farms
Winery made a commitment to the European vinifera grapes.
The original vines were grafted in 1976 and planted in 1977.
Over the years many different varieties of vinifera have been
planted. The successful varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot,
Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon
Blanc, Pinot Blanc, Rkatziteli, Riesling and Muscat Ottonel) are
thriving. The fact that some varieties have not grown successfully
has not deterred Sylvin Farms Winery from continuing its field trials
of different varieties. Years ago, two rows each of Viognier, Semillion and Shiraz were planted. A row of Corvina was also planted.
Sylvin Farms Winery expanded its planting of Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay. In addition,
we planted a Spanish variety called Tempranillo. This is an early ripening red variety and,
if successful, its wine will be available this year. The Italian varieties, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, Sangiovese and Corvina that were planted several years ago, are producing a limited crop which is being made into wine. All the Italian varieties are blended together
and the resulting wine is called Accozzaglia, which means “medley” in Italian, as in musical medley. This is our medley of Italian grapes. Accozzaglia, Shiraz and Viognier will be available at the Garden State Wine Growers Association this year.
We planted a clone of Sauvignon Blanc that will add dimension to our Sauvignon Blanc.
The clone is Sauvignon Musque. At the same time we expanded our planting of Viognier. These varieties grew well and we expect that they will continue to do so this year. We
planted more Viognier, Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera. This will bring our vineyard to
more than ten acres.
In keeping with our support of New Jersey agriculture, Sylvin Farms Winery has always poured New Jersey wines at the Garden State Wine Growers Association festivals. We will also continue to do so in the future.
The wines are made in limited quantities. We continue to experiment, including with the use of French Nevers Oak and American Oak barrels for aging.
The wines are sold at the winery, by subscription, or at one of several outlets. The wine maker’s favorites vary among Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Sparkling Blanc de Noir and Chardonnay.
Visitors are welcome, but please call for an appointment.
Our Winemaking Club offers you the opportunity to make a barrel of your own wine at a real vineyard and winery!
Wine has been made and enjoyed by people from all walks of life for over 5000 years, and we’re bringing it back to its roots. Don’t be intimidated by the fancy French names or mystifying aromas…we have a great respect for wine appreciation but an even greater one for wine enjoyment. Come find your favorite at a tasting in our winery, or launch your own tradition by joining our exclusive Winemaking Club.
Our tasting room is open on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday from 12-6pm and on Friday and Saturday from 12-8pm. For $10 per person, we offer a tasting of our currently released wines paired with a selection of cheeses. Our tastings are designed to be a relaxing, informal and enjoyable experience.
The Hawk Haven story begins back in 1940 when Johan Felix Wuerker traveled from Germany to Cape May, New Jersey and purchased the land that would one day become a vineyard and winery. Three generations later the farmland was still in the family and it became Todd Wuerker’s turn to choose something to plant. The youngest of three sons, Todd and his brother planted the first grapevines, Cabernet Sauvignon, in 1997 before he was even of the legal drinking age. He knew nothing of wine but his roots in farming and his dedication to learning more about winemaking resulted in a very knowledgeable individual who not only produces award-winning wines but also consults for two other local vineyards. Additionally, he helped plant vines at Turdo Vineyards and Cape May Winery.
The hand-crafted wine making of Ventimiglia Vineyard continues a family tradition passed down for generations. Our wines are made in small batches with carefully selected, top quality grapes. We use oak barrels and minimal chemical or mechanical intervention. Artful blending promotes optimal flavors, aroma, and finish. Our aim is to let you enjoy the delicious wine we share at our own table.
“Our aim is to let you enjoy the delicious wine we share at our own table.”
Our founder and devoted winemaker, Gene Ventimiglia, was influenced at a young age by the European winemaking traditions which his grandfather, Eugenio Ventimiglia, brought to this country at the turn of the last century. For over thirty years, Gene has been making delicious wines to enjoy at home with his family and friends.
Our dream to share our high quality, hand crafted wine has finally come true. In August 2006, with Federal Permit and New Jersey Winery license in hand, Gene and his wife, Anne, along with their family and good friends, began professional winemaking at Ventimiglia Vineyard in Wantage, New Jersey.
Our passion for wine goes far beyond the delicious aromas and flavors that exist within each bottle to the unique experience that takes place when the wine is shared. Moments with family and laughter with friends, infused with the spirit of great wine, make memories that we cherish long after the bottle is gone.
Named for the red-tail hawks that live in our vineyard, Coda Rossa Winery is a New Jersey winery located in the heart of Franklinville, that features both New Jersey and California wines.
In 2002, the Giunco family made its first barrel of wine from a handpicked selection of grapes grown at their Colts Neck farm. That first barrel became known as Chambourcin Riserva and won its first gold medal in the 2004 NJ Wine Competition.
That barrel became the inspiration for the remaining 4JG’s estate wines. Our appealing small lot wines get their rich charm and flavors through a combination of great estate grapes and traditional wine making techniques.
4JG’s Orchards & Vineyards is located in Central New Jersey in a historic farming area. The winery is named after the four owners, John and Janet Giunco and their two children, John and Jill. The Giunco family has farmed in Monmouth County for over 60 years. Founded in 1999, Four JG’s Orchards & Vineyards is located on a farm with barns and houses that date back to the early 1700’s.
Four JG’s attention to good farming practices and careful selection of rootstock that grow well in the soils of Monmouth County has already produced many award winning wines. Careful adherence to the modern techniques of wine growing is being employed at 4JG’s. From winter pruning to fall harvest, the vineyard is closely monitored and constantly maintained to guarantee the wine grapes are exposed to the best combination of hand crafting, sunlight, and water. 4JG’s winemakers follow a simple philosophy that only the best grapes grown on their farm are selected to go into the bottle. All Four JG’s wines carry the Quality Wine alliance – QWA designation.
We continue to produce 4JG’s wines with the same care put into every vintage, and love to drink and share them with family and friends.
Located on soil that the Quarella family has been farming for close to a century, sits one of New Jersey’s premier wineries. Bellview Winery, which opened in 2000, has become a destination for more than just locals. Jim Quarella, owner and operator at Bellview, hosts wine lovers from all over. The winery is located on the same farm that Jim’s great-grandfather, Angelo Quarella, purchased in 1914 after emigrating from Italy. He named his farm Bellview. Originally just the 20-acre plot on which the winery now sits, the farm has expanded to over 150 acres, 40 of which are vineyards. The renovated building that is today’s winery houses Angelo’s original wine cellar where, for decades, Quarellas have made their wines.
Bellview takes pride in crafting fine estate wines exclusively from the quality grapes we cultivate here in our vineyards. Attention to detail is evident in each of our 30 wines: a variety of whites, reds, fruit, dessert and sparkling wines, port and even a Dandelion wine from an old family recipe.
Our tasting room is open 10am to 5pm, seven days a week. Bring a lunch if you’d like, or order off of our light fare menu. Sit out in our shady picnic area and enjoy a bottle of wine, or a cigar from our humidor.

Balić Winery makes more than 27 award-winning wines. With this kind of selection of premium and ultra-premium wines under one roof, why go anywhere else?
Descendants of early settlers of Mays Landing planted Balić Winery, a vineyard since the early 1900’s. Savo Balić, a former vine-grower from the Adriatic Sea, migrated to the United States. In 1966 he fulfilled his lifelong desire to bring European accent to the American winemaking scene by acquiring the 57-acre vineyard.
Savo’s ancestral knowledge and experience has enabled him to produce wines of superior quality. In 1993, Savo’s nephew, Bojan Boskovic arrived from Europe to carry on the tradition of the Family.
Bojan’s European winemaking knowledge and experience combined with Mr. Balić’s expertise enhances the authenticity of the Balić Chateau in America.
Now in its 50th year, there are many exciting things happening at Balić’s Winery. We have remodeled our buildings, upgraded our equipment and expanded our product line with several new wine releases to serve our clientele better.
European born and bred Bojan Boskovic has followed in founder Savo Balić´s footsteps as the wine technologist. He has been working side-by-side with his uncle Savo since 1993. Bojan’s background is strong in experience from his family’s vineyard.
