New Jersey

The Garden State

New Jersey’s rich viticultural heritage dates back to Colonial Times when the London Royal Society of the Arts recognized two local vintners for “their success in producing the first bottles of quality wine derived from colonial agriculture.”

More than 200 years later, the tradition of fine winemaking continues.  New Jersey boasts 33 wineries, just over half in the southern part of the state, near Philadelphia.  The remaining wineries are in the center and Northwestern edge of the state.
