Summer is the perfect time to tour our local wineries. We round up 6 spots for sipping on both sides of the Delaware.

William Heritage Winery is a family-run estate vineyard in Mullica Hill, with 40 acres of grapes in the heart of New Jersey's largest wine-growing region.

Penni Heritage and her husband Bill converted the former peach and apple orchard into a winery more than 20 years ago, making award-winning reds and whites.

You can sample in the tasting room, open seven days a week

While you sip, you can savor snacks like the uber-popular pepperoni bread or grab-and-go charcuterie boxes.

Cape May Winery is the fifth-largest producing winery in New Jersey, run by a father/daughter team with four vineyards producing 17 varieties of reds, whites and ports.

As you explore the property, be sure to look up and notice unique details like the hand-crafted chandelier made from reclaimed wood salvaged from the oldest and largest tree in Cape May that had to be cut down.

There's a tapas kitchen creating everything from seafood sliders and Philly cheesesteak flatbread to hummus with toasted chickpeas, polenta fries and tuna poke tacos.

Zachary Wilson started planting grapes in Southern Chester County 12 years ago. Three years later, he and his brother James opened a tasting room.

They started in their parents' garage. They now have 14,000 vines on a former dairy farm in Nottingham, Pa., and the whole Wayvine Winery operation is a family affair.

They offer handcrafted cocktails using Pennsylvania spirits, and local beers along with live entertainment.
