To better suit the masses, Cape May Winery and Vineyard makes it their goal to find a wine for everyone, which is why the winery produces 25 unique styles of wine. During a tasting, one of the friendly wine professionals will help guests find a perfectly matched wine for their drinking preference to ensure everyone has a pleasurable wine drinking experience. Cape May Winery’s wine list ranges from a dry red “young cabernet,” the Cape May Cabernet Sauvignon, to a fruity white summertime fresh white, the Lighthouse White. Cape May Winery’s signature white wine, the Barrel Fermented Chardonnay, won a silver medal at the 2010 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and another silver medal at the BTI Wine Competition in Chicago. This award-winning fruit infused chardonnay offers a soft buttery flavor with a hint of oak.

Each includes a tour of the facility and vineyard, a lesson in how the local wine is made, a wine tasting, a fruit and cheese tray, and a souvenir wine glass as memorabilia.
