Let’s begin at the Cape May Winery and Vineyard ( This vineyard has been producing delicious wines for 10 years and has won dozens of metals in State competitions. They offer a fantastic tour of the vineyard, a delicious wine, fruit and cheese tasting, and a souvenir vineyard glass. Tomasello Winery ( in Hammonton has been producing quality wine since the 1930’s. Tomasello produces approximately 30 still wines and eight sparkling wines, all made from estate-grown fruit or fruit from local farmers. This winery uses only the finest fruit for its wine, giving it brilliant flavor.
Wine is any fermented beverage made from fruit… and our state is one of the largest producers of blueberries and cranberries. Tomasello creates blueberry, cranberry, cherry and red raspberry wines which are rich in antioxidants and other healthy elixirs. Alba Vineyards ( is nestled in the village of Finesville. They have created a recognizable style of wine making which borrows from the past, looks to the future, and emulates the finest wineries in the world.
