Certain locations are synonymous with wine and travel. For instance, Napa or Sonoma. Every wine aficionado has their preference and chances are, Glassboro, New Jersey isn’t on their top 10.
But like a debutant ball for a wallflower cousin, the winemakers of South Jersey are ready to make their regional debut. The once sleepy, college town is ready to take its place as the latest wine-centric destination when it plays host to the Glassboro Vintage South Jersey Wine Festival, May 19 – 20.
According to an article on NJ.com, the event will showcase 13 different wineries and vineyards from around the area: Amalthea Winery, Auburn Road Vineyard and Winery, Bellview Winery, Cedarvale Winery, Chestnut Run Farm, Coda Rossa Winery, DiBella Winery, DiMatteo Vineyards, Heritage Vineyards, Plagido’s Winery, Sharrott Winery, Tomasello, Valenzano Winery and Wagonhouse Winery.
During next month’s tented, outdoor event, each ‘house’ will be offering tastes, as well as the opportunity to buy by the bottle or the case. Organizers are expecting about 2,000 visitors each day.
