A grape that thrives in our climate and soil, Chambourcin has been steadily gaining popularity with wine drinkers. We have been very successful growing this variety, and our Chambourcin wine has won numerous awards including the New Jersey Governors Cup. Chambourcin is a French Hybrid made in a fruity Beaujolais style. This lot was finished in American Oak for one year. It compliments cheese, lighter red meats, Caesar salad and pasta marinara sauce.
|To make great wines you need a few key ingredients. Naturally, things like good soil, healthy vines, sunlight, plentiful grapes and good barrels are all necessary. However, truly great wines require something more --something our family has cultivated alongside our 70 acres of premium varietals since 1933 --hard work and passion.
Founded over 78 years ago by our grandfather, we are the third generation of Tomasellos to build upon his great vision. Not only through dedicating our lives to growing and producing excellent wines that are a true expression of the Outer Coastal Plain --a historically celebrated American wine growing region, but by bringing our wines closer to your families with four elegant tasting rooms and gift shops throughout the great Garden State.
There is a saying in the wine business that “great wines are made in the vineyard.” We would like to take that a step beyond and say that: Yes, great wines are made at our vineyard, but it is the celebrations, the gatherings, the good times with family and friends that makes a wine even greater.
