Wine, which we have produced in our converted apple ground cellar is added to the fruit and vegetables that we’ve marketed for many years through our “on the farm” Jersey Acres
While we produce some Vignoles and Cayuga wine grapes (both white), our primary acreage is planted to the NORTON variety (Vitas Aestivalis, also known by he name,Cynthiana).
Norton is a unique American blue/black grape, which can be finished dry somewhat resembling Cabernet. We also ferment some of the old standard American varieties like Concord and Niagra. Additional varietals are also offered such as Jalapeno-Apple, Blackberry, Pear and many more.
WHY add WINE to the list of products we offer for sale?
Since 1999 we have been growing wine grapes and selling them to other wineries. As the grape production tonage increased, we began investigating the possibility of establishing our own winery. The licensing process was completed in late summer of 2004 and fermentation begun in October of 2004.
Our wine is be offered under our own “STONE MOUNTAIN WINE CELLARS” label. Sales are exclusively at Jersey Acres Roadside Market. Stone Mountain Wine Cellars is a DBA, owned entirely by Jersey Acres Farms.
