WINERIES & BREWERIES
Cape May Brewing Company
Cape May Winery and Vineyard
Within the many rooms of the winery are some very special items both gathered from around Cape May and handmade by our owner Toby. One of the best activities to do at the winery is go for a self-guided tour while enjoying a glass of your favorite wine. Keep an eye out for the Copper Beech chandelier, vine chandelier, stave wall, aerial map of South Jersey, custom made tabletops, and more!
Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery
The farmland has been in the Wuerker family since the 1940s when Todd’s grandfather emigrated from Germany to start a family in Cape May County. Though the landscape has changed through the years, from cattle to vegetables to vinifera, there is a dedication to quality and a passion for excellence that has been as constant as the namesake hawks that soar overhead.
Jessie Creek Vineyard & Winery
As a boutique winery we specialize in production of our estate grown white and red varietals. This includes our Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and hybrid grape Chambourcin. There are 5 acres total with 1 acre dedicated to each varietal. Since our first wines were released we have brought in other varietals and fruit wines to meet customer demand. We have extended our outsourcing to the best local growers and West Coast affiliates. This assures us the best grown fruit beyond our 5 acre estate.
Lazy Eye Distillery
For the first time since Prohibition, hand-crafted vodka is being distilled here in New Jersey. Nestled in the heart of the Pinelands, the Nation’s First National Reserve, Lazy Eye Distillery believes in the virtues of old: Pride, Patience, Hard Work, and Tradition. So slow down, sit back, and take a sip… we hope you enjoy “A Taste of Nature’s Spirit”.
Natali Vineyards LLC
Recognized over the ensuing years as a maker of world-class wines, Natali Vineyards was purchased, in June 2021, by Richard Caplan; a retired attorney with many years of vineyard and winery operational experience. Natali Vineyards has ambitious plans to grow and diversify our business. They are building a large gazebo to serve as a bandstand for weekly lawn concerts and to accommodate private parties and special public events.
Nauti Spirits Distillery
Nauti Spirits Distillery offers artisan spirits, handcrafted from ingredients harvested from area farms. A true farm-to-bottle distillery handcrafting internationally-acclaimed spirits born in our fields, serving up delicious cocktails, captivating tours, great music and fun for all on our beautiful coastal farm.
Turdo Vineyard and Winery
Turdo Vineyards is a family owned and run operation. It all begins with Sal, he is the owner, as well as master wine maker. His vision, commitment, and determination is what turned just over 5 acres of woods he purchased over ten years ago, into a very successful fully operational vineyard and winery. It took a lot work and time, not only from Sal, but from his family to make Turdo Vineyards what it has become.
