Scores and Awards

Over the past several years, an increasing number of New Jersey wines have gained recognition from national and international wine competitions.  Wines from the Garden State have continued to impress the critics in blind tasting competitions and earned special mention in reputable publications such as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

The newly founded Winemakers Co-op was created by four New Jersey wineries to promote the fine wine movement in the Garden State.  The goal is to highlight and encourage premium New Jersey wine production with exclusive events, press outreach, and industry investment.

Founding wineries Beneduce Vineyards (Pittstown), Heritage Vineyards (Mullica Hill), Unionville Vineyards (Ringoes), and Working Dog Winery (East Windsor) are dedicated to encouraging the movement for fine wines in the Garden State. We hope that you will join us in celebrating this exciting venture at a crucial moment for the New Jersey wine industry.
