Let the Post-Dive Festivities Begin! The Unforgettable Beneduce Vineyard Experience
What better way to top off jump day than by diving in to an exquisite glass of wine. . . or maybe three?
Located just a few minutes from Alexandria Field, Beneduce Vineyards provides both seasoned connoisseurs and wine-tasting neophytes with a never-to-be-forgotten culinary experience. Not only will you be treated to a variety of the region’s best wines, but you can arrange for the opportunity to create them, as well.
Trained in viticulture at Cornell, co-owner Mike Beneduce, Jr. masterfully blends the art and the science of vineyard-tending in their charming, 51-acre facility in Pittstown, New Jersey. His techniques result in fruits that lead to intense, complex wines reminiscent of the wines of Austria and northern France. This family-owned winery is eagerly anticipating their newest release, Tuxedo: – a complex, intriguing, white pinot noir barrel-fermented in French Oak.
After you’ve completed your dive, pick up a $10 voucher from Skydive Jersey for the wine-tasting experience of a lifetime. Just 8 short miles away, wines and cheeses that will engage your senses and delight your palate await you.
The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, both in dress and in attitude, so there is no need to change into formal attire to enjoy all that Beneduce’s has to offer. The tasting room is open from noon until 6:00pm, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. For weekend jumpers, their Friday and Saturday hours are from noon until 8:00pm.
Saturdays and Sundays are extra special at Beneduce’s. Their weekly “Group Therapy” events feature live music by the bonfire on the patio, or in their heated Oasis in the case of uncooperative weather. For a $5 cover on Saturdays, and no cover on Sundays, Group Therapy may be just what the doctor ordered following an exhilarating jump at Skydive Jersey. You may bring your own snacks to Group Therapy, and children are warmly welcomed.
