Cape May Winery & Vineyard has grown over the past two decades to produce some of South Jersey’s most distinguished wines. The winery contains over 70 acres of land with four different vineyards from which 11 different varieties of grapes are produced. Cape May’s sandy soil and mild climate make the area a premier grape-growing region, therefore Cape May Winery’s grapes have the ideal setting to thrive and create fine wines.
Through the years, Cape May Winery has become one of Cape May’s top tourist attractions. Cape May Winery offers enticing spots to unwind, relax, linger, and enjoy both indoors and out. With multiple tasting rooms, a charming deck overlooking the vineyard, and an outside patio with bonfire pits, guests are guaranteed to enjoy the ideal tasting treat. Cozy up in the downstairs solarium, complete with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows for breathtaking views of the vineyard.
On a winery tour, novice and experienced wine drinkers learn from grapes to bottle how this local wine is made, and get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the wine-making operation. Stroll through the gorgeous vineyard and sample a soon-to-be-released wine right from the barrel. Participate in a tasting and try a variety of whites and reds which range from dry to sweet, and keep your souvenir wine glass to remember your experience by. While furry friends are always welcome at the winery, pets are not permitted on tours.
In addition to tastings and tours, Cape May Winery holds special events throughout the year. The winery has live music on weekends, Summer Sunday Brunches, Pop Up Vineyard Dinners, Grill Nights, Flights & Bites, and more. Plus, enjoy Happy Hour every Friday from 5-8 p.m.
