Three generations of the Wuerker family have lovingly cultivated the farmland at Hawk Haven Vineyard and Winery. The sandy soils and ocean breezes provide the perfect conditions for great grape growing. Vineyard guests taste our diverse collection of wines at the extra-long mahogany bar and meander through the vines with bottles of wine and picnic baskets. Tastings are educational and enjoyable. Please join us, our tasting room is open daily, year round with live music, tours, and a lunch menu on select dates.

I live near the Finger Lakes, so we go to wineries quite often. This was my first stop at a New Jersey one though! It was a Tuesday afternoon so it was pretty quiet afternoon.

Learned new info about wines and the creative process. The chef produced an amazing 5 course meal. The wine master needed a microphone. He was very attentive to each table.

My wife and I have been to Hawk Haven a few times in the past year, the wine is solid. They have done a nice job expanding their space for guests to sit and join their wines. On the lower price point, Flying Press Red is a nice little table red which is easy to drink with friends. A definite... More

Our Host was very friendly and knowledgeable of the wines. The wines were first class, and bought a bottle of Albarino. Albarino has aromas of cantaloup, watermelon rind, and a hint of grapefruit zest and asian pear. Would like to go back when they have an outdoor event since we went in winter.

Hi there, thank you so much for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed our Albarino! We have an upcoming futures sale of our newest Albarino, the 2016 vintage, and I think it is one of our best yet. That event will be February 25 & 26, 2017. And we would love to have you back in the warmer months!... More
