Tomasello Winery is owned and run by the third generation of the Tomasello Family. It is dedicated to production of fine varietals. They started by making 3 wines, Rainer Red and White and a Rose. The winery is now growing 24 varieties, making 30 still wines and 8 sparkling ones. Almost all wines are made from estate grown fruit or local farmers. The wine is distributed to 31 states as well as Canada and Asia. In the 1980's brothers Charles and Jack came on board. Together they worked on expanding the winery and revamping the vineyard. They plated vinifera vines. Both brothers are very serious about the production of their wines. Their philosophy is, "Quality in winemaking is a function of quality fruit." They only use the finest from within the country to make their wines.
|Wine maker notes
|For over two decades ago Tomasello Winery has been producing 100% pure blueberry wine from cultivated high bush blueberries grown on the Atlantic County New Jersey Blueberries. The wine is semi-dry with soft and perfumed hints of blueberry. Recent studies prove Blueberry wine to be very high in antioxidants. To add a distinctive character to your sparkling wine, try a Tomasello Blueberry Wine Kir Royale. Pour one ounce of chilled Tomasello Blueberry Wine into the bottom of your favorite champagne flute. Top with Tomasello Blanc de Blanc Brut or your favorite bubbly. Serve this as a delightful aperitif before dinner. To highlight your salad course, top baby mixed greens, with slivered almonds, dried blueberries and a Tomasello Blueberry Wine Vinaigrette. Great with cheesecake
|To make great wines you need a few key ingredients. Naturally, things like good soil, healthy vines, sunlight, plentiful grapes and good barrels are all necessary. However, truly great wines require something more --something our family has cultivated alongside our 70 acres of premium varietals since 1933 --hard work and passion.
Founded over 78 years ago by our grandfather, we are the third generation of Tomasellos to build upon his great vision. Not only through dedicating our lives to growing and producing excellent wines that are a true expression of the Outer Coastal Plain --a historically celebrated American wine growing region, but by bringing our wines closer to your families with four elegant tasting rooms and gift shops throughout the great Garden State.
There is a saying in the wine business that “great wines are made in the vineyard.” We would like to take that a step beyond and say that: Yes, great wines are made at our vineyard, but it is the celebrations, the gatherings, the good times with family and friends that makes a wine even greater.
