Celebrate Fall with a Wine Weekend in Cape May County

Thanksgiving is almost here and being the perfect host or guest usually involves a nice wine to offer during dinner.  Why not spend this weekend visiting Cape May County where our wineries offer wonderful tasting rooms.  Sample a wide variety of wines and select one to pair with your special Thanksgiving dinner.  If you are not sure what type of wine to purchase, they offer a helpful guide that helps you pick the right varietal for any meal.  Check it out on the Cape May Wineries website.

We currently have six wineries within a short drive of the Candlelight Inn.  They include:  Natali Vineyards, Jessie Creek Winery, Hawk Haven Winery, Cape May Winery, Turdo Vineyards, and, the newest, Willow Creek Winery.   Originally family farms, they have been transformed with vines lining the roadways throughout the county.  Take your time driving through and enjoy the beauty of Fall.  At each venue, relax and enjoy a taste or two while hearing stories of the start of these wineries from the owner/winemakers. 

After a full day of winery tours and tasting, consider dinner at one of the BYOB restaurants throughout the area.  We recommend the Black Duck on Sunset, Tisha's, Peter Shields, Sofia, and Gia's.

What a wonderful way to spend a romantic weekend together in Cape May County.  We hope to see you!!
