Garden State Wine Growers Association (GSWGA) encourages you to spend some of your Thanksgiving weekend visiting wineries throughout the state on its wreath & ornament trail.
Four Sisters Winery will participate in the GSWGA event, 10am-6pm each day, where you can pick up a grapevine wreath (while supplies last) if it's your first stop on the trail. Start where you want and visit as many wineries as you like and receive a holiday ornament at each location to decorate your wreath.
Experience a little bit of Christmas South of the Border at Villa Milagro Vineyards. Luminarias will light your way inside the Cantina where you will warm to traditional Mexican Christmas music. Snack on taquitos, bolas de arroz and albóndiga as you sip Gracias, Mi Carino and other fine wines. Then finish with a bunuelo and a taste of their special Christmas wine, Feliz Navidad. Gracias or Feliz Navidad make wonderful gifts. Take home enough for friends, neighbors, co-workers, colleagues and special customers. Case discounts apply to both "case-of-same" and mixed cases of wine. Bring your wreath from GSWGA and receive a special ornament for it. $10 tasting includes gift glass and ornament. 11am-5pm each day.
Alba Vineyard suggests shopping local for the holidays, starting with a wine tasting experience including a special dessert. A perfect time to stock your cellar with great wines for holiday entertaining or gift giving and relish in wine country seasonal cheer! Admission $15/person, 21 and older - includes wine tasting and an etched Alba wine glass. 12pm-5pm each day.
Brook Hollow Winery will be open for tasting and sales, and live music here and there. As one of the participating wineries, Brook Hollow Winery will be giving away wreaths and a special holiday ornament, while supplies last. Also, starting on November 23rd, they are retiring the Chocolate Merlot Milkshake and presenting their Merlot Hot Chocolate, just in time for the frigid air and the long snow days.
