Long Description:
The 90-acre farm that this winery sits on has an interesting history. The property had originally been part of the largest peach orchard in the United States. The farm was split off as a dowry present when one of the owner’s daughters was married in 1856. The main house and the oldest section of the winery building were built in 1858. When a “rust” blight hit the peach industry in Hunterdon County after the Civil War, the orchards here and throughout the County converted to apples. In 1900 the farm was sold and became a successful dairy farm. In 1965 the farm was sold to developers who originally had it planted in grains.Today, Unionville Vineyards is an example of New Jersey’s commitment to enabling farmland to exist in the “Garden State,” the most densely populated State in our country. The property is part of New Jersey’s Farmland Preservation Program.
