Follow the Vines Along Delaware River Valley

By Linda Tancs

In summer it’s easy to see why New Jersey earns its moniker as The Garden State, offering a bumper crop of tomatoes, sweet corn, berries, plums, peaches and other delectables.  Like wine.  That’s right.  Move over, Tuscany.  You can sample and experience a bevy of award-winning fine wines of Hunterdon and Mercer counties, just one hour from New York City or Philadelphia.  The Delaware River Valley Wine Trail boasts four vineyards:  Old York Cellars, Unionville, Hopewell Valley and Terhune Orchards.  Tasting rooms open at noon on weekends at Old York and Terhune and every day at Unionville and Hopewell Valley.  Hopewell’s tasting room is a destination in itself, featuring a brick oven pizza stove and a wine bar overlooking the glorious vineyards.  Check for special events at each location, too, like wine and music under the stars.  With dozens of varietals awaiting your taste buds, you’ll be enjoying the ambience for years to come.
