Beneduce Vineyards, Pittstown, NJ,
May 28th, 3-7pm

The Winemakers Co-Op Spring Portfolio Tasting will feature 32 fine wines from some of New Jersey's top producers. Attendees will mingle with winemakers and proprietors, with specific opportunities  to learn how these wines were crafted, and what makes New Jersey wines unique. Enjoy live music from Cold Weather Company, one of's "25 Must-Hear NJ Bands," and nosh on gourmet pizzas from Fired Up Flatbreads. Special guest George M. Taber will give two presentations on the 1976 Judgement of Paris, the historic moment in American winemaking in which California wineries bested their French counterparts in a blind wine tasting. Writing for TIME magazine at the time, Mr. Taber was the only member of the press present that day. His 3:30 and 5pm talks will include never before seen photographs from that tasting.

VIP tickets will include access to a 2pm Winemakers' Round Table panel discussion and tasting in the Oasis- Beneduce Vineyards' greenhouse dedicated to tropical plants and citrus trees. This discussion will focus on a specific element of New Jersey wine making or grape growing, and include a tasting of wines relevant to the discussion. VIP entrants will also have a chance to taste a selection of reserve wines, and a complimentary cheese & charcuterie platter.

The Winemakers Co-Op holds two large public tastings each year. All wines poured at these events adhere to the Co-Op's standards for NJ fine wine- that they are classic vitis vinifera varieties, dry or clasically off-dry, and from 100% New Jersey grown grapes. These wines are terroir driven; true expressions of what New Jersey climate and soil can represent! Most are estate grown, and several are single vineyard bottlings.

The Spring Portfolio Tasting will be held at Beneduce Vineyards, 1 Jeremiah Lane, Pittstown, NJ 08867. General admission includes admission to the grounds, 4 hours of wine tasting, entertainment, and bottled water. Flatbread pizzas are additional. No outside food or beverage are allowed. Children 13-20 will be admitted with a ticket at the $10 designated driver rate. Friendly dogs are welcome provided they remain on a leash and are kept outside of the tasting room. Please be respectful of our other guests and clean up after your pup when nature calls. Pet waste stations are provided outside for your convenience.

The Winemakers Co-Op and its member wineries endorse responsible behavior and reserve the right to refuse pouring for any patrons believed to be intoxicated.
