Cream Ridge Winery anniversary celebration

Locavorism isn't all about fruits and vegetables. Local wines are included in the fun. New Jersey has over 30 wineries, and supporting these wineries helps to support local agriculture and helps to reduce your food (or wine) miles. This weekend, one of our wineries is hosting a celebration.

Cream Ridge Winery will be celebrating its 21st anniversary with an open house this weekend - Saturday, April 18 & Sunday, April 19 from 11am - 5pm. Admission is $5. There will be live music, food samples, tours throughout the day and a chance to talk with the winemaker. The winery will also be releasing their Riesling and Zinfandel at the celebration.

In 2008, Cream Ridge received 14 awards at the NJ wine competition including five gold medals for their Cherry, Walnford White, May, Almondberry and Plum wines. In 2005 Cream Ridge was awarded NJ Winery of the Year at the competition.

This will be an indoor event so any April showers shouldn't keep you away from the festivities.

Cream Ridge Winery is located at 145 Route 539, Cream Ridge, NJ. Click here for directions on their website.
