In 2009 the members of Grass Roots Jeep Club were trying to find a way to bring the Jeep enthusiasts from the different clubs in New Jersey together. At the time our club meetings were held at Amalthea Cellars a small winery in Atco N.J. We decided to try to host a show. Jeeps in the Vineyard was born.
After months of hard work we ended up with 68 Jeeps and 12 sponsors. We out grew the winery that first year. The 2nd Annual JITV was moved to Valenzano Winery in Shamong N.J. And grew to just under 100 Jeeps from 3 states and 18 sponsors. The 3rd Annual JITV grew even more with over 150 Jeeps and 23 sponsors. In 2012 the 4th Annual JITV was a huge success with Jeeps from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. With 30 sponsors.
