Belvidere, NJ: Vintage North Jersey, a collaboration of northern New Jersey wineries, announces its first Wine & Food Festival to be held August 16 & 17 at one of the oldest north Jersey wineries – Four Sisters Winery, located just outside of Belvidere on County Road 519.
Take a ride out through beautiful northern New Jersey and experience some of their fine wines, local flavors and even some local bands at one centrally located venue.
Easily accessible from Route 80, Four Sisters Winery is located off exit 12, on County Road 519, six miles south of the exit and 2 miles north of Route 46.
Sample New Jersey wines from Sussex to Mercer County. Wineries will be paired up with local specialty food selections, some of which are produced on the vineyards themselves.
Four Sisters Winery, owned and operated by the Matarazzo family, has a long history of farming even before planting their first vines 33 years ago. Along with serving tastings of a variety of wines from Four Sisters, they will prepare homemade bread and dipping oils for sampling. Spices, including rosemary, thyme, oregano and basil, in the breads and dipping oils all come from the farm.
Terhune Orchards Vineyard & Winery, of Princeton, represents another family that has been farming fruits and vegetables for almost 40 years. Today, in addition to the vineyard, they have expanded the operation with a bakery that transforms natural, wholesome ingredients into the best tasting assortment of baked goods. Visitors to the festival will be able to sample or purchase fresh fruit pies.
Nothing can be sweeter than honey and wine from Old York Cellars winery of Ringoes. In addition to their wines, they will be sampling and selling the honey right from the hives in their vineyards. Honeybees have long been friends of farm wineries, and Old York is blessed with the honey from this ongoing friendship. The honey has a strong local following as people are realizing the health benefits of consuming local honey.
Masters of the culinary, Cava Winery and Vineyard will be sampling specialties that can be found at their in house restaurant at the winery in Sussex County.
Hopewell Valley Vineyards will be sampling “Bread & Spread” – two different kinds of humus & tzatziki Greek spreads to compliment their wines. Made by modern Italian & Greek methods while using old world wisdom and its secrets of good wine.
Participating wineries also include Ventimiglia Vineyards from Sussex County, Brook Hollow Winery and Villa Milagro Vineyards of Warren County, and Beneduce and Unionville Vineyards of Hunterdon County.
