5 Wines To Love At The Jersey Shore

2013 Cape May Chardonnay

Produced by the Cape May Winery in North Cape May, this white wine was awarded a silver medal by the Beverage Tasting Institute. The Winery recommends pairing it with shellfish.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Jessie Creek Winery harvests and processes on site, creating wine right in Cape May Court House. The emphasis on quality makes it no surprise that their Cabernet Sauvignon was the recipient of a silver medal in a statewide wine competition.

American Kestrel White

Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery in Cape May County was awarded a Bronze Medal in the 2012 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition for their American Kestrel White. This light white wine pairs well with white fish or crab to enhance its fruity flavors.


This award winning white wine produced by the Natali Vineyard in Cape May County has a light, appealing fragrance of apricots and honeysuckle.

Meditrina Rosa

Named after the Roman goddess of wine, it pairs well with seafood. The Willow Creek Winery produces this wine in Cape May.
