A host of area wineries will be on hand to show off their vintages when the Jersey Fresh Wine Festival comes to the Burlington County Fairgrounds next month.
If you’ve been hearing about the big splash Jersey vineyards have been making in the wine world, this is a great chance to sample their wares and learn more about the role wineries are playing in New Jersey’s agriculture and economy.

Plus, you’ll get to enjoy some really good wine and groove along to the sounds of long-time Jersey musical favorites, the VooDUDES. The band plays a mix of original songs and well-loved tunes, in a jambalaya blend of funk, blues, honky-tonk, Caribbean music and Zydeco.

South Jersey wineries participating in the festival include: Amalthea Winery, Auburn Road Winery and Vineyard, Bellview Winery, Chestnut Run Farms Winery, Coda Rossa Winery, DiMatteo Vineyards, Heritage Vineyards, Plagido’s Winery, Renault Winery, Sharrott Winery, Tomasello Winery, Valenzano Winery and Wagonhouse Winery.

Jersey Fresh Wine Festival will be held Sept. 7 and 8. The fairgrounds are located off Route 206 in . Tickets are $25 (21 and up), or $40 for a two-day pass. For more information, visit
