While looking for the Mercer Airport, we decided to stop by The Hopewell Valley Vinyard. To say its visually as well as tastefully attractive would be an understatement. We were pleasantly surprised and forgot all about the airport we had found for a future trip. Those 6 wines for 6$ was more than just a tasting, and you were given a bit more than the usual drop. I really don't understand how/why some wineries use those stoppers, with you ending up with less than one mouthful. No one is there is drink, but you do need something to taste and Hopewell was generous without going overboard. I can't say the last time I was at a winery(probably Valenzano) where we tasted so many fine wines. My wife and I enjoyed the Vidal Blanc the most, the thin bottle reminded us of Ice Wine. If you have never had ice wine or don't know the story, you should read about. Back to Hopewell, how about going to their Merlot and Music evening, or Jazzy Sunday events. Those behind the bar serving the wine tasting were as great as the wine they were serving. And the gounds where you can picnic outside or just relax and enjoy the view, well its more than worth the trip. While there are many fine wineries in NJ, this one now has catapulted near the top, and you should try it too. Can't wait to return, and bring another great wine and memory back home.
