Happy Wine Wednesday Everyone!
This week I am featuring a local New Jersey Winery that has their Vineyard in Hammonton, NJ with multiple tasting room locations across the state.
I had the pleasure of experiencing a tasting in the Lambertville, NJ location this past weekend with my husband. This location is a tiny little retail store front nestled within the historic downtown – just a few hundred feet to the bridge into New Hope, Pennsylvania. I highly recommend visiting this area and these two quaint towns (you can walk over the bridge from NJ to PA).
The tasting is $15 per person – this included 8 wine choices & a wine glass to take home.
Added bonus, they are dog friendly!
My husband and I try to sample different wines when we go to tastings so we can then try each others, this isn’t always easy, because not all wineries offer enough selection to do so. Tomasello was completely different, they had an abundance of wines to pick from.
The woman who did our tasting was fabulous, I was afraid being in a small storefront and not at the actual winery it would lose some character. But, it really was a different but great experience. She was very knowledgeable and had a lot of great recommendations.
A little bit about the winery.
- The Tomasello Winery sits on 70 acres in the southern part of New Jersey, it is a family owned winery that has been working this land since 1933. It is the third generation of the Tomasello family that are now cultivating the land and working the vines. They pride themselves on being from the Outer Coastal Plains – this is a regional term for the wine that comes from this area of New Jersey.
- They have multiple tasting rooms throughout the state – here are the locations

We thoroughly enjoyed all of the wines we sampled – and their wines have won a lot of awards throughout the years. To see a list of these awards – click here.
Since I visited this tasting room during Labor Day Weekend, I decided to bring home a great bottle of their Pinot Grigio to enjoy. Pinot Grigio to me is the perfect summer wine. Chilled to perfection you can’t go wrong serving this wine during the hot months. This Pinot Grigio has hints of grapefruit and is extremely refreshing- pairs well with seafood, grilled chicken, cheeses and leafy green salads. Definitely give it a try!
I highly recommend taking a visit to the winery or one of the many tasting rooms Tomasello Winery has to offer.
New Jersey is definitely a state that has been upping their wine game and their wines can truly compete on an international level with some of the best. We definitely aren’t a state that should be overlooked when it comes to the present and future of winemaking.
