Not sure how we found this but so glad we did! Every Sunday between 2 pm and 5 pm, a jazz group plays and we've gotten lucky both times in that the group was quite good and entertaining. There are light snacks (cheese plates, etc.) and you can do a wine tasting or just buy a bottle. Try the white... More

I recently hosted a bridal shower here and had a phenomenal experience. First of all, the venue is absolutely beautiful whether you are looking for a place to host an event or just a nice evening out. Booking the venue was an easy and painless process, courtesy of the event coordinator, Jen, who was flexible and accommodating to our party's... More

Decided to try a local winery for a summer weekend activity. Based upon the reviews we traveled to Pennington to visit the Hopewell Valley Winery. Upon arrival noticed a large tour bus in the parking lot. We walked into the main tasting room which was mostly empty, the tour group appeared to be situated in an adjoining building. We were...

First of all, I hate merlot but the music & merlot concept at this vineyard is great. They have brick oven super thin crust pizza, great wines & live music. My only complaint is that the music is a bit loud so if going with the intention of having great conversation, that may or may not happen here! The wines... More

I visited the vineyards with my husband and another couple. We went after dinner for some drinks. When we got there, it was pretty busy but we were able to find a table out on the deck which gave a beautiful sunset view of the vineyards. We were surprised to find that they also served pizza, cheese platters, and even... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon for a tasting. Staff was very friendly and the tasting was very nice. We each had six different wines, but you can choose the package with 10 per person. They give you water and snacks to eat between wines. We stayed for the "Music and Merlot" event and it was such a good environment!... More

we really enjoyed the tasting, so we bought a few bottles of wine and once we opened the bottles they were terrible. Two of the reds (the $25 and the $40 bottles were like vinegar) Being a wine drinker, I have to add that we were careful about temperature in transit and storage, so temperature change/exposure wasn't the problem. I... More

We have been here for numerous music and wine events as well as standard tastings, and enjoy ourselves and the wine every time. The people here are very nice and the venue is awesome. Great place to sit outdoors and enjoy the day with a glass of wine!

We visited the winery on a Saturday night and while tasting wine we were treated to a great blues act called the Ron Kraemer duo. What a treat to have local talent playing while we enjoyed pizza and wine with friends. The chardonnay is good but we especially liked the Sparkling wine. The wood fired pizza was tasty but the...
