I’ve been a fan of local New Jersey wines for many years. For ages I wondered why wineries would close at 5pm on Friday nights. With beautiful grounds, fantastic wines and local jazz musicians itching to play a show, they have everything they need to attract a crowd seeking to unwind on a Friday night. I figured it was such a no-brainer that there must be some kind of law or local ordinance preventing them from staying open, serving wine and giving people a place to socialize, relax and listen to some jazz.

The Jazzville crew had a great time living out their inner “Sideways” fantasies this past weekend at the Blues & Wine Festival that was held at Natirar State Park. After all, what could be better than sampling more than 200 fine NJ wines from 23 local wineries, all while swaying to live blues?
If there’s one thing I like as much as local NJ Jazz, it’s local NJ wine. The Garden State Wine Growers Association’s upcoming Blues & Wine Festival is the perfect place to get my fill of both.
This year it’s taking place the weekend of May 29th and 30th, with a rain date on the 31st.
