Come and experience what everyone is talking about...

The Hawk Haven story begins back in 1940 when Johan Felix Wuerker traveled from Germany to Cape May, New Jersey and purchased the land that would one day become a vineyard and winery. Three generations later the farmland was still in the family and it became Todd Wuerker’s turn to choose something to plant. The youngest of three sons, Todd and his older brother Ken planted the first grapevines, Cabernet Sauvignon, in 1997 before he was even of the legal drinking age. He knew nothing of wine but his roots in farming and his dedication to learning more about winemaking resulted in a very knowledgeable individual who not only produces award-winning wines but also consults for other vineyards.

Meanwhile, Kenna Sitarski was a single independent lady working in sales with a payroll and human resource outsourcing company. One of three daughters, she grew up in Voorhees, NJ and graduated from Rutgers with a BA in English. She met Todd in December of 2004 when his banker referred Todd to Kenna for his construction and development company. The banker had also bet Todd that he couldn’t get Kenna to go on a date with him. Feeling overconfident in his skills, he was sure he would woo her right away. Kenna, however, would not be charmed quite so easily. Todd realized he had met his match and would not stop until he had won her heart. Kenna eventually gave in and they were married March 16th, 2008. Four years later on February 9th, Kenna gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Elin Irene, who was followed by Semma Loren (also beautiful) on June 25, 2013.
