Across 28 acres of preserved farmland, lies Old York Cellars. This vineyard is sublime with its mountain views and lush surroundings. While enjoying daily wine tastings and vineyard experiences, there is outdoor and covered seating for all guests and members. During the pandemic, there have also been virtual tasting parties, fundraisers and client events. 

Owner David Wolin spoke about the incredible year the winery has had: “Chosen to be 2020 New Jersey Winery of the Year and winning so many medals has been a great way to celebrate our 10th anniversary. These honors are a result of the hard work of our dedicated winemaking team.
