Description

Just as the harvest season winds down this fall, the inaugural After the Harvest Wine & Food Event presented by Provident Bank, will be launched at the Culinary Arts Institute at Hudson County Community College in Jersey City on Saturday, October 28 from 1-6 p.m. when member wineries of the Garden State Wine Growers Association and the Culinary Arts Institute and Hudson County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs/Tourism Development team up for this new fall event.

Wineries scheduled to participate are: Autumn Lake Winery (Williamstown), Southwind Vineyard & Winery (Millville), Tomasello Winery (Hammonton), Valenzano Winery (Shamong), Villa Milagro Vineyards (Finesville) and Ventimiglia Vineyards (Wantage).

There will be a maximum of 500 tickets sold for this event. Each ticket is $25 and entitles you to tastings, wine seminars and a FREE wine glass, which you will pick up on the day of the event (proper ID required). There is also a non-drinker ticket priced at $10 that can be purchased. All attendees must be at least 21 years old. Advance sales are encouraged as there will only be a limited supply of tickets sold the day of the event. Attendees will be admitted at 12.30 pm and wine tasting will begin at 1 pm.

Unlike many of the outdoor festivals in the state, the After the Harvest event will be an intimate experience, allowing for engagement with winery representatives to discuss the wines being sampled. Educational wine tutorials will also be held in the meeting rooms adjacent to the Scott Ring conference room. Talks will feature topics such as the Health Benefits of Drinking Wine, hosted by Dr. Audrey Gambino, owner and winemaker at Villa Milagro Vineyards. Dr. Gambino is author of numerous books, a former television show host and one of the most quoted nutritionist in the country. Tom Cosentino, executive director of the Garden State Wine Growers Association will give a talk on the history of New Jersey wine and there will also be a talk on the 5 S’s of wine tasting. An ice sculpture demonstration, musical entertainment, vendors and other refreshments will be on the docket.

The After the Harvest event is the first element of a new partnership between the Culinary Arts Institute of Hudson County Community College and the Garden State Wine Growers Association.

“We are very excited to launch this partnership with the Culinary Arts Institute and to bring New Jersey wine to the Jersey City region,” said Tom Cosentino, executive director of the Garden State Wine Growers Association, the advocacy group for the state’s wine industry. “By teaming with the Culinary Arts Institute we are not only producing a unique wine and culinary experience with this event, but also establishing a long-term relationship with the school that will allow us to have our winemakers visit and give talks on New Jersey wines and to also have our product introduced to the great restauranteurs in the region through this relationship with the Culinary Arts Institute and the Hudson County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs/Tourism Development.”

“New Jersey Wineries produce some wonderful wines. Having a chance to educate the public in a fun format is exciting for the Culinary Arts Institute, said Dr. Eric Friedman, Vice President for Academic Affairs for Hudson County Community College.

New Jersey wines continue to achieve great acclaim and awareness. New Jersey wines regularly win Best of Show, Double Gold and Gold Medals in such prestigious competitions as the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition, San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, Tasters Guild International Competition, Beverage Tasting Institute World Wine Championship and Indianapolis Wine Competition among others.

The Garden State Wine Growers Association is the statewide organization for the advocacy and promotion of the New Jersey wine industry. Founded in 1984, the association has driven exponential growth through wine education initiatives, cooperative marketing campaigns, and a slate of annual events dedicated to taking our wines across New Jersey, and encouraging enthusiasts to visit our wineries. Comprised of over 50 members, the GSWGA produces wine events and wine trail weekends in participating winery tasting rooms statewide, to market the locally produced wines of the Garden State. The Association also addresses the legislative affairs and public relations of the state’s wine industry.
