As fall approaches, one of our favorite local activities is to explore the unique and serene wineries located within 15-45 minutes of Woolverton Inn. From the rolling hills of Hunterdon County NJ to the gorgeous farmland of Bucks County PA (right across the Delaware River), the Woolverton Inn offers you a wide choice of impressive vineyards that are definitely worth a visit. This time of year, the properties are at their best, drawing visitors with music, festivals, and more to celebrate their harvest.
Just up the river in beautiful Delaware Township, Hunterdon County is the Federal Twist Vineyard. A short drive or easy stop off the towpath along the Delaware River, Federal Twist boasts a lovely selection of wines in a bucolic setting. Visit their new tasting space, and enjoy selections of local cheeses to pair with your wine.
Follow the river up and across Hunterdon’s most scenic countryside to visit our friends at Beneduce Vineyards! Often boasting live music on the weekends, Beneduce provides an elegant yet fun experience for all. Taste their variety of wines in the expansive barn style tasting room, and bring a bottle outside to take in the rolling hills surrounding their property. You might even catch a small biplane fly over, as the winery is located right next to Sky Manor Airport!
A ride back towards the Delaware River and across at Frenchtown into Bucks County will take you to Sand Castle Winery. Soon after riding up the road to the winery you will see why it holds its name, as the main building looks like a giant sand castle! This estate grown wine will not disappoint, and with their amazing views, perched high above above the Delaware River, you cannot ask for more!
Back across the Delaware and along the back roads to Ringoes, NJ will take you to Unionville Vineyards. A wooden bridge and gravel road take you up the historic brick farmhouse and large barn. Enter the barn and experience the majestic tasting room. Grab a bottle and head outside to take in this charming old farm with views of the farmland beyond.
These are just a few of the many vineyards that are within 20 miles of Woolverton Inn. Whether you are looking to experience one location or more, the Woolverton Inn provides the perfect starting point to enjoy this interesting wine region along the Delaware River. You might even be tempted to purchase a bottle for the road, bring it back to the Inn, and enjoy it sitting on our porch as the sun sets beyond!
