William Heritage Winery
William Heritage Winery is a family owned and operated estate vineyard and winery located in Mullica Hill, New Jersey. Mullica Hill is located in the heart of the Outer Coastal Plain American Viticultural Area. Named New Jersey’s “Winery of the Year” in 2011, 2014, and 2015 by the Garden State Wine Growers Association, Heritage has begun cementing its self as a benchmark producer in New Jersey.
Cultivation of grapes began when Heritage Vineyards was established in 1999 by Bill and Penni Heritage. Seeing the potential of the emerging wine industry in Southern New Jersey, Bill, with the help of his wife Penni, started converting their 150 acre estate of peach & apple orchards into vineyards. The Heritages represent the fifth generation of farmers who have tended this land. Great care is given to the vineyards and the grape growing effort because the key to making great wine is to grow the best quality grapes.
