Looking for a relaxing activity to do instead of the beach? Then look no further than Cap May’s winery and vineyards. Check out the top four Cap May wineries and vineyards and discover which top-rated winery you want to tour.
Located in New Jersey’s Outer Coastal Plain and surrounded by the ocean and bay, the 50-acre vineyard enjoys a unique microclimate reminiscent of Bordeaux, which leads to exceptional grape harvests. Willow Creek produces fine wines from their unique grape vines that are now at the “ripe” old age of 10 years old and producing wines of award winning quality. The vineyard is open daily at 11am, year round, for wine tastings, tours and private wine-paired events. From the moment you drive up to the beautiful Villa, you know you are about to enter some place very special.
Stop by the Cape May Winery for a relaxing afternoon during your summer vacation to Cape May or the surrounding area. The winery’s Summer Grill Nights make the perfect night out. They are every Wednesday June 27th through September 5th while the Lobster Bake starts up in late August. Looking for a place to hang on Friday nights this summer? Enjoy an adult beverage with family and friends on Friday evenings from 5PM - 8PM in the Tap Room for happy hour. Live Music, Tapas, and Rotating Carafe Specials make this a fun and relaxing night out.
