The Garden State’s wine-producing history spans well over 200 years. New Jersey wines have been winning awards since 1767, when London’s Royal Society of the Arts recognized two New Jersey vintners for their success in producing the first bottles of quality wine derived from colonial agriculture. Today, there are nearly three dozen wineries in the state, with the Renault Winery, dating back to 1864, being one of the oldest in America.

As an ocean state, New Jersey’s climate can be described as maritime. The winds from the Atlantic moderate the temperatures. There are both hillside vineyards - with great exposures to the sun - as well vineyards in the low lands. The soils range from shale and slate to sandy loams and gravel. New Jersey truly is the Garden State. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

  • My place is kind of wine-starved at the moment as my wine languishes in New Jersey.
