Wineries in New Jersey and New York are located in some of the most beautiful areas. Often they are in old stone buildings or converted dairy barns. Add to this the acres and acres of vines planted on sunny hills and, perhaps most important, the wines themselves, and you have the makings of an awesome day trip. Early fall is a particularly fruitful time, because that is when harvesting is going on.
