Nestled right on the seashore, Cape May Winery has operated a 15 acre vineyard for more than 10 years. Cape May’s temperate climate and fertile soils are perfect for growing the award winning wines that Cape May Winery produces, and the vineyard is open for self guided tours as well. In the Cape May Winery tasting room you can sample the winery’s different varieties including chardonnay, riesling, pino grigio, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Also, in the tasting room you can purchase wine by the glass, bottle, or case and peruse different gifts and wine novelties. Some visitors to the Cape May Winery bring a picnic or purchase a pre-made boxed lunch from the vineyard and eat outside on the upper level deck of the winery’s two story showroom. In addition to tours and tastings, the Cape May Winery hosts Champagne Sundays where the winery opens and visitors are invited to tour the winery, enjoy gourmet cheese crackers and top off their afternoon with a glass of Cape May Sparkling Wine or a mimosa. Winemakers, Darren Hesington and Toby Craig invite you to stop by the Cape May Winery and discover one of the region’s best kept secrets.
In addition to the Cape May Winery, there are a few other Wineries in New Jersey located in Cape May County. Turdo Vineyards and Natali Vineyards are also located near our Cape May Bed and Breakfast and the MAC Trolley (Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts) runs Cape May Winery Tours to these locations.

Over two hundred years ago, Cape May’s vintners were recognized by the Royal Society of the Arts in London for their fantastic success in producing the first bottles of fine, quality wines from the colonial lands. Today, Cape May honors its history with the Cape May Wine Weekend which takes place the second weekend in October. Gourmet chefs from various Cape May Restaurants compete to create the best wine dinner, and vendors and vintners convene to sell their wares and celebrate all things from the vine! In addition to the wine festival, Cape May Wine Weekends have become quite popular in recent months as the area’s fine Cape May Restaurants offer delicious four course wine dinners tailored specifically for each wine of the evening. Learn more about these upcoming events by contacting our Cape May Bed and Breakfast.
