Wine & Brine

The Winemakers’ Co-Op and Sweet Amalia Market + Kitchen are collaborating on this terroir-driven, high-style tasting that pairs Co-Op members’ estate-grown wines with five courses spotlighting the lauded Sweet Amalia oysters sustainably farmed on New Jersey’s Cape Shore Flats. It’ll be an afternoon dinner to remember.

Miracle of the Vines

Drink in the scene at Villa Milagro Vineyards: Located in Warren County and bordered by the Delaware River and the hills of Hunterdon, it’s the definition of bucolic. It’s also the domain of a couple who cherish the concept of stewardship and the crafting of wines.
