The 19-mile Cape May Wine Trail cuts through some of the most scenic shoreline in South Jersey, from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean to the freshwater Delaware Bay. You will be charmed by the Victorian-Era Beach Town and the wines from the Cape May Peninsula.
We begin at Jessie Creek Winery, a relatively young winery making small amounts of high-quality, estate-grown vinifera. We’ll enjoy a charcuterie pairing with their wines. Next up is Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery. With property in the family since the 1940s for use for cattle, vegetables and now vinifera, Hawk Haven makes a range of wines, including a white port-style wine, Méthode Champenoise, and Méthode Ancestrale.
We’ll stop at Cape May Winery for lunch, a tasting and a tour. Known as the first winery off Exit 0, Cape May also sells all its own wine, so this is the only place you can get it.
