Area wine lovers will get a chance to sample future vintages direct from the barrel at some of their favorite New Jersey wineries next Saturday and Sunday (July 14-15) when the Garden State Wine Grower’s Association’s Barrel Trail and Wine Tasting Weekend is held at participating wineries across the state.

GSWGA members will open their barrel rooms so that patrons can get a sense of what future wines will taste like. Many wineries will also be debuting new releases. Visitors will get the opportunity to see how the winemakers test their wines as they age and what they must do to bring a wine to maturity.

Participating wineries include: Four JG’s Winery, Colts Neck; Amalthea Cellars, Atco; Auburn Road Vineyard & Winery, Pilesgrove; Bellview Winery (pictured), Landisville; Brook Hollow Winery, Columbia; Cape May Winery & Vineyard, Cape May; Hopewell Valley Vineyards, Pennington; and Laurita Winery, New Egypt.

Those planning to attend should contact individual wineries about admission fees and specials.

Visit the Garden State Wine Grower’s Association website for more details.
