Sometimes in life, it’s worth making pour decisions. So why not grab a cozy lounge chair, gather friends and family and have your souvenir wine glass ready, because the sippin’ starts now. At the Pour Into Summer Wine Festival attendees can relax while enjoying the sampling and purchasing of over 150 refreshing NJ wines. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Spend the day listening to great live music, shop artisan crafters' works, and indulge in delicious eats and treats served up by some of NJ’s favorite food trucks. Need activities for the kids? Make it a family day because there will be a moon bounce, arts and crafts, sand art, and lawn games, some at an additional cost. So come celebrate at the first wine festival of the summer. It’s worth stopping to smell the rosé for.
Wineries on site include: Auburn Road Vineyards, Cedar Rose Vineyards, DiMatteo Vineyards, Four Sisters Winery, Plagidos Winery, Terra Nonno Winery, Villa Milagro Winery, Villari Vineyards, and Wagonhouse Winery.

They bring an eclectic taste to the festival by mixing Asian flare, exotic BBQ, Italian delicacies, Australian meat pies, and even scrumptious Belgian waffles. And it doesn’t just stop there.
If it's great music you want, this festival has got it. On Saturday, come enjoy one of the area’s best live bands-Zaire. This band has the ability to cover the very best songs and get everyone up on their feet dancing. On Sunday a true fan favorite, Mario & The Slyders, takes the stage. It’s never a dull moment with this band, as they will have the place rockin’ all day long. Our live music stage is sure to be hoppin’ and poppin’, so don’t miss the fun.
