Working Dog Winery strives to make sure that everyone who visits is provided with a positive wine experience.  In order to ensure that your time with us is enjoyable, we have updated our policies, effective September, 1st 2017. 

  • Working Dog Winery is food friendly, but our intention is for nibbles and snacks ONLY, (for example:  small blocks of cheese, crackers, fruit, but, NEVER hoagies, platters of any kind, pizzas, birthday cakes, etc.).  All outside beverages are not permitted, however soft drinks, water, and gatorade are available for purchase inside the tasting room.  Please no water of any kind, water will be provided for visiting dogs.

  • Groups larger than 8 may visit winery, but must provide their own seating and tables, and will be located in designated areas behind the tasting room on the grass. (If rain occurs, seats will not be available in building or under covered area for large groups).  

  • Family organized birthday parties and celebrations are not permitted.

  • In accordance with the New Jersey Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, NO alcohol other than Working Dog wine may be consumed anywhere on our property.  Any violations will be confiscated.  

  • Coolers larger than a lunchbox are not permitted.  Coolers and bags are subject to inspection at our discretion.  

  • The Winery is intended for adults.  However we do provide space for children accompanying their parents.  Children must be attended to at ALL times, and are never allowed in the vineyard.  

  • Dogs are allowed in the outside seating area, but must be on a leash.  Barking dogs are not permitted in the tasting room.  

  • Please be respectful of your fellow patrons in the tasting room and grounds.  Loud and disorderly behaviors are distractions to others trying to enjoy their winery visit.  We are a winery, not a bar.

  • Changing the seating arrangement in the tasting room and outside is not permitted (no moving barrels, tables, etc.).  

  • We do permit playing Frisbee, corn hole, having a catch, and flying a kite in designated areas.  Activities involving bats, sticks, and clubs are not allowed as they can be dangerous to others.  

  • Limos/bus tours must arrive before noon.  

  • Policies are subject to change at Working Dog’s discretion to insure the best possible wine experience for all patrons.
