Vineyard & Winery
Framing scenic views of the Sourland Mountain range, Old York Cellars boasts 25 beautiful acres of preserved farmland and 13 acres of rolling vineyards. Planted in 1979, these vines were the first to produce wine under the New Jersey Farm Act of 1981 (the legislation that continues to facilitate New Jersey's growth into a booming wine region) . Amidst these fields of established vines sit three new and newly renovated estate buildings that offer guests a broad range of winery experiences.
Upon entering the vineyard, after passing the iconic corkscrew sculpture installation and driving along rows of Marcel Foch vines, guests first encounter the Tank Room. This is the building where the wine is made and features a large glass facade revealing the 1,000-gallon steal tanks within. Weekend Vineyard & Tank Room tours provide insight into the process by which the vines are cared for, their fruit harvested, fermented, then bottled as fine wine.
Beyond the Tank Room on the left side lies the Vista Room. This 1,100 square foot facility houses our featured artist exhibits and indoor picnic area, but is mainly reserved for private events. Featuring a wall of windows and massive deck, the Vista Room offers exquisite vineyard views, possibly the best the winery has to offer.
Directly across from the Vista Room stands the Tasting Room. Here guests can experience Old York Cellars' wine guided by friendly and experienced wine servers, peruse the gift shop of local artisanal products and wine accessories, or sit outside on the patio to enjoy the scenery with a picnic and a bottle of wine.
