The Garden State Wine Growers Association Leads this Celebration of New Jersey grape growing, winemaking and agritourism

Haddonfield, NJ (October 26, 2023) – New Jersey Wine Week will run from November 13 to 19, 2023.

Garden State Wine Growers Association (GSWGA) –  a coalition of 60+ New Jersey wineries and vineyards dedicated to promoting and supporting the Garden State’s wine industry through information, resources, and advocacy –leads this annual celebration, showcasing the rapid growth and success of the New Jersey wine industry. With over sixty wineries and vineyards spanning from Sussex County to Cape May, the event underscores the rich diversity and quality of wines originating from the region.

Embrace the essence of New Jersey Wine Week, highlighting local businesses, farmers, and the richness flourishing within the vineyards! Join us for a delightful toast at the New Jersey Wine Week events, hosted at the charming wineries across the Garden State.

Ways to celebrate the Garden State with us during 2023 New Jersey Wine Week:

  • Plan a Day Trip: Explore a local winery (or two!) during New Jersey Wine Week 2023! Raise a glass to their dedicated staff, share your experience on social media, and purchase a cherished bottle of New Jersey wine. Don’t forget to capture the moment with a “Cheers to New Jersey wine!” video, and tag #CheersNJwine #2023NJWineWeek

  • BYOB Delight: Bring a bottle of NJ wine to one of the countless BYOB restaurants in our state and neighboring cities. Share a toast with the staff and revel in the joy of supporting local businesses and our hard working farmers.

  • Discover Hidden Gems: Did you know that some BYOBs also offer New Jersey wines on their menu? It’s true! Many of our state’s wineries are nestled in rural areas, and outlet partners often have a selection of New Jersey wines from one winery each available for you to purchase and enjoy during your meal, bringing a taste of New Jersey Wine Country to your table.

  • Raise a Glass at Restaurants and Bars: When dining out, ask for NJ wine! It’s a wonderful way to show your support for the wine industry. If the restaurant features NJ wines, savor them with your meal and share with us on social media! If not, your request sends a positive message: We all have a place at the table!

“We invite you to raise your glass in support of New Jersey growers and winemakers,” says Devon Perry, Executive Director of the Garden State Wine Growers Association. “Join us in savoring and supporting local farms and businesses as part of this exciting week-long celebration. Plan your exploration of New Jersey wine country during New Jersey Wine Week. A variety of special events are planned throughout the state.
