Some Local Breweries and Wineries
Sometimes we all don’t really feel like going out to the bar and I thought I’d share some local places to get great home brews and wines!
First on our list is Cape May’s first ever brewery. 2011 The Cape Brewing Company was established. It was slightly shocking to discover it took us that long to get our own brewery considering the abundance of amazing wineries we have to offer. Cape May Brewing Company is located in our airport and brew 9 different beers right now according to their website. They have something for everyone. They also do tours every weekend.
Next we have the Cape May Winery. While it’s not technically located in Cape May, it’s only a hop skip and a jump over the bridge on Townbank Rd. You can find Cape May’s wine’s in a few local restaurants in the Cape May area. They also do tours for a steal of a price! You can sample 6 wines for 6 dollars and then keep the glass. The Cape May Winery does a variety of different events and dinners each month!
You can also check out Willow Creek Winery located on Stevens St. in Cape May. This winery is a massive 50 acres. The tours include a brief history, how to identify your favorites, and some other amazing facts about wine! At 10 dollars per person this a true bargain! You must call ahead however to go on one of these awesome tours.
Last but not least we have Turdo Vineyards (which I used to live next door to). Sadly, Turdo Vineyard has closed for the season as they have ran out of wine. Once the spring comes, however, you can take a tour of this fantastic vineyard located right on Bayshore Rd in North Cape May. Fun Fact: according to their website they are the only 100% green winery in the state of NJ.
Hope you enjoyed this one and maybe I’ll be seeing some of you at these wineries and breweries!
