History of the Cape May Winery & Vineyard
Cape May Winery has grown over the past two decades to produce some of South Jersey's most distinguished wines. Our vines encompass over four different vineyards, containing over 70 acres, from which we produce over sixteen grape varietals. We invite you to come and experience our winery! Plan a visit to one of our three tasting rooms, enjoy a bottle of wine on our charming deck, go on a winery tour, or simply take in the breathtaking views of the oldest grape vines in Cape May County. Come and see what makes the Cape May area such a premier grape growing region. From Cape May's sandy soil to mild climate, our grapes have the ideal temperature in which to grow.
Our overall wine production includes a variety of whites and reds, ranging from dry to sweet. Our main focus is on the viniferous grapes including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and Chardonnay. We also feature blended wines, both dry and sweet, which really hit the mark with our customers.
Our signature white wine is the Cape May Barrel Fermented Chardonnay, which is fermented and then aged in French Oak for over 16 months. The soft buttery flavors of vanilla ready the palette for a seductive taste, which then finishes crisp with a dry fruitiness that is "shore" to please.
Our goal is to find a wine for each person’s unique palate. We produce over 20 different styles of wine and when you partake in a wine tasting; our professional wine associates guide you to find the perfect match for your drinking preference. Of course, we encourage tasting a variety of wines as your palette changes over time and you may actually enjoy something you might not have before!
