The hand-crafted wine making of Ventimiglia Vineyard continues a family tradition passed down for generations. Our wines are made in small batches with carefully selected, top quality grapes. We use oak barrels and minimal chemical or mechanical intervention. Artful blending promotes optimal flavors, aroma, and finish. Our aim is to let you enjoy the delicious wine we share at our own table. Our founder and devoted winemaker, Gene Ventimiglia, was influenced at a young age by the European winemaking traditions which his grandfather, Eugenio Ventimiglia, brought to this country at the turn of the last century. For over thirty years, Gene has been making delicious wines to enjoy at home with his family and friends. Our dream to share our high quality, hand crafted wine has finally come true. In August 2006, with Federal Permit and New Jersey Winery license in hand, Gene and his wife, Anne, along with their family and good friends, began professional winemaking at Ventimiglia Vineyard in Wantage, New Jersey Read more »

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Cabernet Franc 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The afternoon ended with the 2006 Cabernet Franc, one of my favorites of the day. Aged in French Oak, the wine ages an additional 3 years in the bottle. Made in the Bordeaux-style, this is a full-bodied, dry red. The nose is earthy with a slight mustiness, and in the mouth the wine is rich, full, with notes of grass and berries and a strong ...

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Made from California grapes, this is a full-bodied wine with a lovely deep garnet color. The nose is sharp and tangy, and in the mouth the wine is soft with nice notes of plum and a smoky, spicy, slight tobacco finish. The finish also lingers beautifully, and the wine grows more complex and interesting with each sip. Read More

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Merlot 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Made from California grapes, the Merlot has a bright nose with notes of plum and cherry, and a lovely soft fruitiness in the mouth that is balanced by a slightly acidic finish. A nice wine, but not as interesting as the Syrah, Carignane, Chambourcin or Cabernet Franc. Read More

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Cariagnane 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This was my first taste of a Carignane wine, as despite it being one of the most planted grapes in France, it is often used for blending rather than as the primary grape. Medium-bodied with a soft mouth-feel and notes of stone fruits on the palate, it is designed to be a companion or table-wine, and is Gene Ventimiglias favorite everyday wine. ... Read More

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Syrah New Jersey Red 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The last of Ventimiglias New Jersey Reds, the Syrah is made from grapes grown in vineyards directly across the street from Jon Bon Jovis house. Gene has added just a touch of Grenache to the Syrah and the result is a lovely medium-bodied wine with a delicate, fruity nose, a smooth, soft mouth-feel, and light cherry notes on the palate. The Syr... Read More

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Chambourcin New Jersey Red 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A Gold Medal Winner at the 2009 NJ Wine Competition, this is a very interesting wine. Chambourcin with a slight blend of Syrah, Merlot and a little Sangiovese, this is a medium-bodied wine with a lovely deep ruby color. The nose is bright and fruity, and the mouth-feel is lovely and full. Aged for 16 months in French and Hungarian oak, there ... Read More

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Rocky Ridge Red New Jersey Red 2006

    Snoothrank:

    he Rocky Ridge Red is a bland of eight different grapes, all grown locally in New Jersey. It is cold-fermented and aged in oak, and like all of the Ventimiglia Reds it is unfined and unfiltered. The nose is bright and fruity, and in the mouth there are lovely notes of dark berries and stone fruits. The wine has a slight tartness, which gives ... Read More

  • Ventimiglia Vineyards Vidal Blanc 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A New Jersey wine, this is a dry full-bodied white that would be great on its own or paired with food. Like the Buon Giorno, the Vidal Blanc also has a light nose, with subtle floral notes. There are interesting notes of grapefruit and apricot in the mouth that give the wine a touch of sweetness, providing a depth that I didnt necessarily find... Read More
