New Series to Promote New Jersey Wines

The Garden State Wine Growers Association and Exit Zero are partnering to launch and host a new Uncork & Unwind: a Fine Wine and Dine Series on May 12 and have been working to curate a unique dining experience for each guest.

With this partnership, visitors can now add perfect wine pairings to waterfront sunset views and mouth-watering food from land and sea to make the most perfect night out at Exit Zero’s The Lookout at Ferry Park.

“We are excited to partner and officially introduce the Uncork & Unwind Series with the Garden State Wine Growers Association,” said Krystina Kennedy, Director of Programming, Sales and Events for Exit Zero Hospitality. “We felt it was a great way to showcase local fine wines while highlighting some of the delicious food as we kick off our 2023 season.”

The menu includes a five-course dinner with options like cauliflower bisque, prosecco mussels, steak frites, and more paired with wines from four New Jersey wineries (listed below). Come spend the night mingling with the winemakers, while you enjoy the fruit of their labor.

Reservations are required, cost is $100/ticket. Please head to to book your memorable night of fine wine and dining. Please note the menu is subject to change, but there will be no substitutions.

“The Garden State Wine Growers Association Fine Wine Caucus has been working on setting up wine pairing dinners throughout the state to promote the fine wines these winemakers are producing in our very own backyards,” said Kenna Weurker, Board of Directors Chair for GSWGA. “We thank Exit Zero for being our first partner in the series to help our idea for this come to life!”

Participating wineries for the May 12th event include:

Cedar Rose Vineyard

Amalthea Winery

Auburn Road Vineyard

Hawk Haven Vineyard

The second event in the series is currently scheduled for June.
