Wagonhouse, A South Jersey Winery

photo

Last weekend we made it over to Wagonhouse Winery in New Jersey for a Wine Tasting. We had sampled a couple of their wines last year at the Vintage South Jersey Fall Wine and Beer Fest. With unique flavors, fruits, and names, we were anxious to see the winery and try all 18 of their wines! The weather was perfect and the grapes were still on the vines, ready for harvest. The vineyards and grounds are so beautiful and peaceful, with both indoor and outdoor tasting rooms.  The place was quite busy, but people really seemed to be enjoying themselves…and the wine. We definitely did! Paired with some cheese and chocolate, it was the perfect Autumn afternoon. We highly recommend you visit Wagonhouse Winery if you’re close to the area and in the mood to try some truly delicious and unique wines from a family-owned vineyard and winery. On Saturdays and Sundays they even offer $5 tastings!  For more info on the winery, the wine trail (there are 7 wines in this part of South Jersey all within 10 minutes of each other!) and monthly events ,visit the Wagonhouse Winery Website or the Vintage South Jersey Website. ‘Tis the season for harvest and many fun wine events!

Wagonhouse Winery is best known for its Three Boys Brand and Award wining Blueberry wine. In fact, many New Jersey wineries have some pretty amazing and unique wines. On Nov. 2nd and 3rd, you’ll have the chance to sample many of these wines at The 4th Annual Grape Adventure at Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari in NJ. We went last year and it was a great time! For only $20 you can experience over 14 local wineries and vineyards, live music, food & craft vendors. For $45 you can even go on a Safari Tour and try some exclusive wines.  This is a great and fun way to sample many of the Vintage South Jersey wines. For more info and tickets visit the Six Flags website.
