Bellview Winery harvests in South Jersey. Guests can sample wines and purchase by bottle, half or full case at a discount! Here's some information about some of the wines we tried at this winery.
Viognier '04, a delicious dry white wine with touches of peach and apricot. Gold Medals - 2005 & 2006 NJ State Wine Competition.
Traminette '05, an off-dry white, bit spicy with honeydew melon overtone. Bronze - 2006 NJ State Wine Competition.
Lemberger '04, red is not too dry, not too sweet. Overtones of plum & cherry. Bronze - 2006 Vineyard & Winery Management East Coast Competition and 2006 Riverside International Wine Competition. Also silver - 2006 NJ State Wine Competition.
Syrah '03, a dry red with overtones of currants, blended with a touch of Viognier. Bronze - 2006 Vineyard & Winery Management East Coast Competition.
Cabernet Franc '03. Smooth, dry red...my reaction was...WOW! Earthy and spicy but extremely flavorful and full bodied. I walked away with a half case, WOW. Silver - 2005 Finger Lakes International Competition.
Cabernet Sauvignon '02. Very tasty, rich, hearty dry red. This wine cellars well, and gains complexity in aging. I couldn't resist buying a case of this...
Under the Arbor Blush Wine. Very tasty, sweet and fresh tasting blush. I bought some bottles and that very night prepared a very delightful chicken franchese. mmmmmmm
Blueberry Dessert Wine. Many wineries make blueberry wines, but this one is different! It has all the flavor that one would expect, but not in a heavy, syrupy consistency. Gold - 2006 New Jersey Wine Competition and Governors Cup for best fruit wine made from New Jersey Fruit. Delicious...I bought a half case!
Bellview Winery was started here in New Jersey in 1914, with winemakers bringing their craft from Italy. And boy, do they know how to make wine!!!
