Founded in 1987, and rooted firmly in New Jersey, the Garden State Wine Growers Association (GSWGA), representing over 60 New Jersey wineries and vineyards, has never had a fixed address. This changed in June 2022 with the grand opening of the GSWGA headquarters in Haddonfield, NJ. Facilitated by Segel Associates, the grand opening event, “Cheers To New Jersey Wine Country”, was open to the public and media and included state and local dignitaries for a ribbon cutting and brief remarks.
Multiple toasts were made by and to New Jersey vineyard owners, growers and winemakers, and the winner of the 2022 New Jersey Wine Country Passport Prize was drawn. The event included remarks by the new GSWGA Executive Director, Devon Perry, who encouraged all to download and experience the New Jersey Wine Country Passport app.
Attendance at the event was strong as industry professionals along with wine novices, enthusiasts and members of the media mingled, sipped and savored New Jersey wines. The event truly put the Garden State Wine Growers on the map.
