The New Jersey Holiday Wine Trail Weekend offers a local, festive weekend that provides the perfect opportunity to uncover the hidden treasures of New Jersey’s wine country!”
With over 60 wineries and vineyards in four distinct American Viticultural Areas, there’s always a New Jersey winery nearby.
