Want to know first-hand what wine making is all about?  Spend an evening with some of our finest winemakers as the Garden State Wine Growers Association presents our new Meet the Winemakers Series at wineries throughout New Jersey. Each event will feature a host winemaker joined by at least two colleagues from other wineries for an interesting discussion on their wine making styles. Guests will be able to sample some of the leading wines from each winemaker, ask questions of the experts and purchase wines from each participating winery. Snacks will be provided by Jana Foods. Additional food may be available for purchase. Tickets are $15 and include 6-8 wine samples and souvenir glass.

The event at Brook Hollow Winery, featuring Paul Ritter of Brook Hollow Winery and Matty Matarazzo of Four Sisters Winery, originally scheduled for June 20, has been postponed until the fall.


Those purchasing a GSWGA membership card will be able to attend up to four Meet the Winemakers events in 2017. GSWGA Membership cardholders must RSVP in advance to reserve seats at the event.  To purchase a GSWGA membership card, click here.
