Myself and six friends went for a winery tour on Sunday, we had been to Valenzano Winery before and thought it would be a fun day date to try some wines and get out of the house. We were completely blown away by how EXCEPTIONAL this tour was! Our guide, Danny was incredibly knowledgeable, funny, inviting and engaging. He was so passionate about the grapes, the processes, and the wine- you can tell he LOVES his job! I highly recommend this tour - It was a BLAST and we are already purchasing another Groupon to take this tour again in the fall, (although I think we would all pay full price)! The wine was delicious and they did an excellent job of pairing the wines with food, our favorite being the fried chicken with cucumber wasabi cream and the chocolate ganache cake! After the tour and tasting, which lasted 2 hours, we were invited to order food and stay a while longer in the barrel room. Danny, Jonathan & Rachel were a fabulous team, I would love to see larger food parings and offers! Such an awesome day!
we went to the dinner on thursday evening expecting an excellent evening because of the valenzano name and everything was more than expected. we sat near the fireplace which created its own ambience but the service was excellent.with help from the wine expert we were treated with excellent choices which was very pleasing to the pallet. we started off with the appetizer of clams which was very tender and the remaining broth was just as enjoyable for soaking up the bread. we had 2 types of chicken entrees and each was excellent. the service was very pleasant and we felt like we knew the servers for years. fortunately we had plenty of left overs so we can enjoy the next day. we did not have room for deserts and we are looking to go back and try in the wine tasting room. i would recommend very highly and the prices were were not extravegent but on the very reasonable sign. thank you for such a great evening.
I’ve always known I wanted to get married at Valenzano Winery. It’s such a beautiful place, the staff are awesome, and the wine is delicious. Our guests loved the barrel room, which was such a unique space for cocktail hour. The bridal suite was great too – although there needs to be a hook somewhere in the room to hang the dress! The only comment I have is that you have to pay to get there early, which was a little frustrating. The only way to work out my limo timing was to have the girls dropped off at 3:45 instead of 4, and we ended up having to stand outside because we weren’t allowed in yet (come on!). They book up fast though, so be prepared for that. We got engaged in February, 2015 and had to get married on a Friday in May, 2017 because all the Saturdays were booked! Overall my wedding was everything I could’ve hoped for and I can’t wait to see the beautiful pictures in the vineyard!
For the past few years we have made a family tradition of going to valenzanos the weekend after thanksgiving. We usually do some wine tasting and then enjoy a bottle at a table and order some food. This year we just wanted to buy some wine and leave, did not care about the band or want to taste any wine. We where told in order to even walk in the door we had to pay 5 bucks each person. Really? We didnt even bring cash we only had plans on buying cases of wine. I have to pay you to allow me to buy cases of wine from you? No thank you, we will take out business elsewhere and we did. We purchased 4 cases an the next winery. They didnt demand money to walk in their doors. We will start a new tradition.

Valenzano is a Lovely Winery! I have been going to the Wine Fest for the last 2 years and look forward to it at the end of every summer. We usually pack up a cooler with some water and snacks, along with a blanket and few chairs, and we will spend the entire day there, tasting different wines- eating great food- shopping around with local vendors- and just spending some quality time with friends outdoors. They have a wide wine selection that will please anybodys preference. My favorite is the "reserved" selection wines.

We love Valenzano Winery! We discovered their wines at a wine festival a few years back & are hooked! We especially love their Shamong White, red, Shamong red reserve, Pinelands Blush, their fruit wines are also delicious such as the white cranberry & lets not forget their Red, White & Blue Sangria!! Their tasting room is so nice too, the gentleman Al who has been there on the occasions weve stopped in is very friendly & helpful.
My sister took a day trip today to relax and Valenzo Winery was a perfect choice! We had a great tour by the consummate tour guide Danny who really make you feel you are part of his extended family by the end of the tasting. I have been on several winery tours and today was the best I have ever experienced! It was great to learn different ways to enjoy wine and food together. All the staff were very professional and friendly.

Beautiful, beautiful Winery. They have a very nice selection of wines without over-complicating it. The new release Honey is very good and the Shamong family of wines are outstanding. Top this off with a wonderful staff who treat you like youre family and you have an outstanding place to go. p.s. They were the only winery during the Blues & Wine Festival held over Memorial Day weekend to fly the American Flag. Way to go!

Beautiful venue to hold an event-large or small! They make a large variety of wines, which are very good and. Some even feature local crops-bleuberries, cranberries, honey. The Sangria is great-just add fruit. Dont miss the Winefest in September! Its a great way to spend the weekend. Theres wine, music, vendors and a kid-friendly area. Bring a blanket or lawn chair if you dont rent a tent.
Valenzano Winery was the first stop on our 4 stop trolly wine tour. They were definitely unprepared for a group of 32 people! However, due to the hard working staff they made it work. They had a great selection of wines to taste and the cheese/cracker tray was very good too. If it wasnt for the hardworking staff this stop could have been a complete failure!

I enjoy this winery above all. Went on a wine trail last year and all me and my husband could say was how nice this one was. You had music playing, good food and great atmosphere. People there are extremely nice. Plush the Pinelands Blush! We loved trying all their wines. They are a buffett of absolute goodness! Its definitely a must! Anna Simpkins
This winery is awesome. My wife and I love the Shamong Red and the Shamong White. Even my mom loves the White Cabernet. Its a truly beautiful venue. My wife and I got married at the indoor site. There is also an outdoor site. Great tasting room. You can have cocktail hour in the distillery. The vineyard and the long rustic bar are awesome.
I love this place so much. After a very frustrating day today the only wine I wanted was from this place, so I cracked open a bottle and enjoyed. My boyfriend and I love it so much we go in alot just to do tastings and relax. Hopefully in the near future we will inquire about their wedding packages.
