  • My husband and I have been visiting Hopewell Valley Vineyards for the last few years. Each trip is better than the last. We highly recommend attending an evening event - especially the Music & Merlot series. Attendees are invited into a welcoming environment of local musicians performed, brick oven pizza selections and a varying selection of Hopewell Valley Vineyards wines. A NJ classic, I would recommend their Chambourcin! Do not miss out on this local gem when visiting the area OR if you are a local and have not made it over to the Vineyard, make the time to do so now, you will not be disappointed!
  • Truly my happy place. Fantastic wine music and great food. So awesome to live in the same town as hopewell Valley vineyard.
  • A beautiful vineyard with delicious and varied wines and a very helpful and friendly staff. Can't wait to revisit and enjoy their beautiful patio and outdoor entertainment for one of their pizza nights!
  • They place is amazing however, Viola who is the owner is EXTREMELY NASTY and rude and and borderline racist and I will NEVER come Back to this establishment as long as she is in charge. It sucks because aside from that I really had a good time.
  • The live music and the environment were good, and the wine is only ok -- as you may expect. It can make for a fun evening. I only drank the red wine, so I cannot comment on the white, which I would expect to be better.
