New Jersey Vineyards Covered With Snow

Colts Neck, N.J.

A thick blanket of snow covered most N.J. vineyards as the Garden State Winegrowers Association hosted their annual "Wine and Chocolate Lover's Weekend" on Feb. 13 and 14. Hundreds of wine enthusiasts descended upon participating wineries across the state to taste new wines and boutique chocolates. Visitors to 4JG's Vineyards & Winery in Monmouth County enjoyed a serene, wintery view along the long driveway to the tasting room.

With more snow than most in recent memory, this winter will test N.J. grape vines against the harsh, northeast elements. Vitis vinifera, the supreme wine grape species, has European origins and is sometimes thought to be particularly vulnerable in the severe cold...More on that soon...
